Hanoi, Vietnam

6:21:00 PM

This February on Awesome in Manila (for the latter half at least, since I've been very busy picking up the pieces of my broken sanity over the first two weeks), we're all about Hanoi!

You can count it as a disruption of sorts in our Monthly Introspection series (**discontinued as of March) since there's very little introspection to do with it, but I just couldn't wait any longer to start sharing about my first ever solo trip (which happens to be my first international travel experience as well) and I figured maybe it's nice to not be talking about anything other than a fun memory for the next two weeks. (I like overly long sentences.)

And more specifically, the content you can expect to receive on your feeds (if you're subscribed, if not: clicky!), as soon as I get my butt off the lazy couch, are the following:

  • a review of the hotel that a stayed in, 
  • what to do / what to see / what to buy / where to go in the city + tips on getting around,
  • Everywhere We Ate, 
  • our side trip to Halong Bay,
  • overall budget (be warned: I'm never on a backpacker's budget), 
  • and a few of the things that I learned as a first-time solo, international tourist (or traveler, if you find me worthy to say so). 

Each one furnished with loads of photos, for your visual pleasure.

Let me get organized for now and in a day or two, I'll get back to you with something. In the meantime, please enjoy the (best effort, amateur) video that I made (above) and follow the hashtag #HanoiWillAlwaysLoveYou on Instagram for a sneak peak of what's to come!


P.S. For everyone who's waiting for the announcement, the names of the winners for the January Giveaway were already posted on the contest page. Congratulations to Yan and Josh, and a big thanks to all y'all who joined!

There might not be a giveaway this February, but there will be one on March so come around again for that. :)
