Hanoi Photo Diary: Street Photography In Vietnam’s Capital
Looking back, Hanoi was one of my favourite places to take photos on my round the world trip. From the ancient architecture to the people on the street, there were so many photos that I took that are now some of my favourites. Please don’t think I’m a photographer. I’m a novice at best and just like documenting my travels. If you are planning a trip here, be camera ready! Please enjoy my Hanoi photo diary!

HELPFUL GENERAL TRAVEL TIPS
- Flights: Find a cheap flight using Skyscanner or Momondo. I like these two booking sites because they both search all websites and airlines around the globe including budget airlines.
- Accommodations: I use Booking.com or Tripadvisor to find the best rates on hotels. Hotels.com offers a free night after booking 10 nights.
- Get up to $40 off your first Air Bnb stay by using this code!
- Travel Insurance: Having gotten sick on my travels in the past, I never travel without being insured. You never know when something may happen. For my round the world trip and extended long-term travel, I use World Nomads. For other trips, I have used Roam Right and they cover activities like extreme sports.

If you are planning a trip to Hanoi, I have also written another post here with my top ten recommendations of things to do. Originally I did not enjoy Hanoi. After meeting a fellow Canadian Vietnamese traveller who became my exploring companion, I gave it another try. Thai Binh helped translate, was my food guide, and introduced me to his local friends. In the end, I ended up loving Hanoi. Had I not given it one more chance, it would have been on my short list of places I didn’t enjoy.
