Hanoi, August 2015, Day 1

28 Aug

2015年の8月

ハノイに行って来ました。初めてベトナムに行きました。

シンガポールからマレーシアに、タイに、行くのはベトナムより安いので少しい考えて結局行くことに決まりました。

場所と言葉も良く分からないので少しい心配しました。でも妹はどうしてもハロンベイに見に行きたくて。。

周りの日本の友達に言われて食べ物美味しいよ〜、野菜沢山食べるから太らないよ〜って

いっぱいご飯食べちゃって体重増えましたが(^^;;

でも確かにご飯のときに野菜はいっぱいでした^_^

今回の飛行機はベトナムエアーでした。初めて使ったので、心配でしたが、おかげさまで、無事に行って帰って来ました。。

August 2015…

When summer holiday is going to end,

I had the chance to bring my parents to Hanoi, Vietnam.

This was my first trip to Vietnam. We were excited as well worried because we had no ideas if Hanoi was children friendly. The language was different, people’s character was unknown. But as my sister was really enthusiastic about Ha Long Bay, we decided to go there.

We booked Vietnam Airlines for this trip, because when we looked for the tickets, Vietnam Airlines offered cheaper rate than Tiger Airways. Its timing was alright, though I made mistake with my Hanoi-Singapore flight. Accidentally booked 745am flight, which ended checking out at 5am from hotel in Hanoi. Less sleep for the kids…

Weather in August was warm and humid. The hotel where we stayed at was at Old Quarter area. It was Essence Hotel for Day 1. Clean, simple, and Nice for my big family. Paid around $90/night, reserved 3 rooms for everyone.

Old quarter area was a bit messy, where motorists kept coming from both ways in the road. Moving around with grandparents, three little ones for shopping was a bit challenging as weather was warm and humid. But somehow we managed…

We ate at hotel restaurant as kids were hungry. Food was alright, but not cheap. We wanted to eat at somewhere else more authentic but we were not familiar with our surroundings, so we enjoyed calm dining inside the hotel…

Building near the river, walked from hotel for about 5-10mins. Could not go further because of the crazy road situation. Motorcycles were everywhere and weather was crazily warm and humid.
