Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam with 1006 years old, but planned tourist area of Hanoi old quarter just account for 100 ha including 76 streets belong to 10 administrative wards of Hanoi. Come to Hanoi, Ho Guom (english name, returned sword lake) and Hanoi old quarter are two traveling spots you should go there before departing many other derserving places.

Many things to do in Hanoi, exactly what we want to talk about if you are a newest guest here. From old construction and bad infrastructure of streets, roads and complicated system of  sewer, electricity.. and without streets for pedestrians, foreigners visit Hanoi old quarter will face difficult stituations, even get trouble with unfamiliar culture. Most popular thing, a stranger could be shocked, is the local habbit and behaviour. When you are walking in streets, even on the sidewalk.. the “beep” of almost the tranportation vehicles is the sound you hear frequently at any conners, any streets for nothing.. but to many vietnamese perception, that is way of announcing their vehicles are participated on road to the others.  However, you should not worry and panic for that, when crossing on roads or walking along or around any conners, just take a careful look around and then move slowly (should not run and run, it’s very dangerous, because the vehicles participants cannot control their speed and cannot handle hard stituations) and maybe use your body language what help the others know about your joining together with them as a helpful alert. Sometime, on the way to somewhere for sightseeing or shopping in these old streets, you can see a lot of rubbish lying on the roads, or so many people casually throw bubbish in streets instead of putting into trash. If you see these bad behaviours, you should ignore or better way, you can give a signal that you are unhappy with them (help them understand that it’s not good for environment and beautiful life of themselve). The former, I describe some bad behaviours and some hard challenges for tourists when first time travel in Vietnam, especially, Hanoi old quarter as well.
