Day 8 – Luang Prabang 🇱🇦 to Hanoi 🇻🇳

Another day of heavy rain showers, but this time with all our luggage on our backs, and under plastic ponchos. We looked ridiculous but needs must…

Waiting for a flight to Hanoi in the evening, we moved from cafe to restaurant to shelter from the rain, catch up on journal entries and research our steps ahead.

After one last Lao Tuk Tuk to the airport, we were on our way for a short 40min flight to Hanoi Vietnam. We got our Visas approved and were promptly picked up at the Airport and taken to our hotel which’ll be a perfect base for our time in Hanoi.

One interesting first impression about Hanoi is that it’s all a bit mad. The bin lorries even play a little song as they drive round the streets…


Lyrics if you want to sing along are:

Vietnam Fatherland green
There are not always clean
It’s up to your actions

Only belong to you alone act
It’s up to your actions
Only belong to you alone act
