Vietnam April 4th 2014 Photo Tour

April 4th - A Day Photographing in Hanoi

The weather held out and we had a great day here in Hanoi. Leaving our hotel early this morning in comfortable 24 C weather our first photo shoot was at the wholesale flower market. The colours and photo opportunities did not disappoint and group had a great experience meeting the folk in the market place.

We returned to our hotel around 8:30 a.m. for time to have breakfast and freshen up, then headed back out to visit various points around the city, including the mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh, even though it was closed to visitors today as Tussauds had to do some fix up work. We also visited some beautiful parks, west lake, toured the old quater in electric cars, the Temple of Literature, a water puppet show and had a great lunch at KOTO and dinner at Pots N Pans.

Everyone has turned in for the evening as we are still catching up on our sleep from our departure on Wednesday.  Tomorrow morning we depart for a 145 KM drive to Halong Bay, for an overnight cruise. 

Please note, because of our cruise and no internet in the bay we will miss a day for a blog entry. Our next post will be April 6th, when we reach Hue Vietnam.

Enjoy todays photos, and good night from all the Trekkers in Hanoi, Vietnam.

Our first image, fresh cut roses at the flower market this morning.


All the flowers were so fresh, one of our guests pointed out the even the flowers they throw in trash looked pretty fresh.


Tiger Lilies very colourful.


Lois capturing a few images at the market this morning,


More beautiful colour.


Roses with a few drops of water ...


A rose by any other name ... this is Rose.


Claudia capturing a few shots this morning at the market.


Dan making his way through the market.


Selling her cakes ...


Fresh Lilies ready to take home.


Ladies sorting roses.


More roses being delivered. The farmers are not allowed on the roads during the day, so they have to bring all their flowers through the night.


This woman has made her purchase and will now head into the city to sell her flowers on the street. More beautiful roses.


Lilies Reflection.


Bee on sunflowers.


Danny working on a close up. The same bee as above.


One happy passenger.


Pull in, pick it out and take it home. Coffin sales near the market.


Changing of the guard at Ho Chi Minh's mausoleum 


Workers near the memorial of Ho Chi Minh.


Everyone should have a selfie outside of Ho Chi Minh's house!


One of the many colourful trees in the garden.


I wonder if this will be her new background on her cell phone.


One Pillar Pagoda, built in 1019.


Prayers at the pagoda.


Wow what a way to move a stack of chairs. 


Ready to sell her lilies in the city.


A slower shutter speed and a Little wind at the temple of Literature makes for an interesting shot.


Confucius say .. Where ever you go, go with all your heart.


Some beautifully painted water puppets.


Everywhere you look an interesting image appears. A quiet alleyway.


I know there's a match here somewhere. Someone want to give me a foot up!! Sandals inside the Hanoi Market place.


Life happens one floor about your business. 


We stopped near a school in the old quarter this afternoon. Lois talking to a couple of students.


View of Hanoi from our hot air balloon.


Another view from city view restaurant. Well see how many from the first group read the previous image comment.


Our last two images tonight are from the water puppet show.


One last image from the puppet show. It was a great first day in Vietnam.


That's it for this evening from Hanoi. We hope you have enjoyed our first day out. Tomorrow we leave for Halong Bay and our overnight cruise. So we won't be posting tomorrow evening as there is no internet on the ship. Our next post will be April 6th. Thanks for following.

Jamie, I read your comment. Hot air balloon? Sounds like a scary, fun time. Your photos are bringing back some wonderful memories.
Posted by Paul Garner on
very good photos James, colourful, good composition and they all tell a story...... brings back the fresh memories..... great place to visit and you ran a very well organized trip.....
Hot air balloon ? I thought the only hot air was from the "happy Budda" who was on our trip :-)
Posted by Shirley Grant on
Great photos......they do bring back fond memories. Good did I miss the hot air balloon ride? Marg and I must have been wheeling and dealing at the market.

Too bad you missed Ho Chi Minh.....hope his makeover was a success:)

I see a few people in your photos with masks on? Pollution from autos.
The flowers are unbelievably beautiful. And the buildings are so interesting.
Have fun.NThPAy

OK, it is official - I am so jealous. Would love to be there again! Fingers are crossed for sunshine in Halong Bay (although our misty shots are magical too).

Hot Air Balloon, oh James that is just too easy. I won't even say it!!!

But I guess you are feeding us the one liners, from the restaurant.

I guess that scooter is a Chair-iot.

Good to see you adding some soul / or is that sole? to your images.

OK I'll stop. But only if you do.

Looks great, so far. I was in Sarnia for First Friday photo shows and chatted with many of the Chicago trippers. All looking forward to it.

Have fun and don't have too much deja-VIEW.
