Hanoi and food kind of go hand in hand. The street food culture is amazing and to really understand the local vibe and culture you need to eat your way through it! Be more than a tourist. Be a traveller. It started with me trying to find a little food joint called Banh Cuon Gia TruyenThis little place had gotten some great reviews about their Vietnamese Rice Pancakes and I for one was dying to try it. The place was small and unfortunately quite unappetizing as it was very unclean. I wish the tables were not dirty and had less waste on the floor, but I found myself liking the translucent rice crepes (mine were stuffed with little shrimp). Was it the best place to grab lunch? Probably not. But the food was a thumbs up in my book.

While I stayed away from the dog and cat meat which is everywhere in the town we lived, we eat street food a lot and even tried some of more unusual dishes such as frogs and birds. You can also have some of the insects, however after trying them in Thailand, once was enough for me!9- Visit Uncle Ho in Hanoi

When we arrive in Nong Kiaow, we realise that to see a place so beautiful, sometimes you have to suffer to be deserving of the view. Nong Kiaow is separated in two. One area for locals, the other seemingly built of guesthouses. We make our way across the bridge on foot to our designated Falang bungalow, and begin to drink in slowly, the view with a beer Lao on Laos time.
