…while in Hanoi we really needed mountain bikes and helmets. At one point we had to cycle down a dual carriageway among the motorbike traffic! But we survived and in fact we loved cycling in Hanoi. We rode around West Lake and it gave us a chance to observe Hanoi life on street level.

We also hopped on bikes in the Mekong Delta to visit a beautifully restored merchant house where we had lunch.
