Travel : Vietnam - Hanoi & the North

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

Vietnam is an amazing place to travel. Really nice, friendly people and good service. There is also so much to do and see. It is a very beautiful country with a wide variety of interesting pagodas, shrines, gardens, museums, beaches, etc The cities are frantic but fascinating.

Le Spa du Metropole @ Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi looks damn good.

Image

Few can rival Le Spa Du Metropole insofar as the rendering of ultra luxurious beauty experiences are concerned, and those who are willing to splurge on a full body deep tissue massage or intensive facial treatment session can count on being pampered like royalty. Enshrined in a glasshouse facility of sorts between the Opera Wing (built in 1996) and the historic Metropole Wing (built in 1901) of the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi, this exquisitely fashioned wellness centre boasts eight separate treatment suites on the second level which feature tasteful designs inspired by the opulent lifestyles of Thai and French nobility among others. Add to these a Finnish sauna, a Hammam bath, and shower rooms.

In the heart of the Hòa Bình Province is Mai Chau, a district with lush greenery, beautiful mountains and a vibrant culture. Mai Chau is a wonderful place to explore if you’re looking to get an authentic view of the many cultures that have found a home in Northern Vietnam.

After viewing these stunning photos of the Evian Spa Hanoi, I am starting to think quite differently of Vietnam. Seems the people there really know a thing or two about luxury.

Image

An uplifting lightness pervades the senses upon setting foot in Evian® Spa Hanoi; uncluttered, well-lit interiors largely prescribed in purist white tones happen as a calculated tribute to the tiny town of Évian-les-Bains which has garnered an almost mythical reputation owing to its prized clear water springs lining Lake Geneva's southern shores. Occupying the 34th and 35th floors of the skyscraping Lotte Hotel Hanoi, this 1,200 sqm establishment yields three single treatment rooms, three double treatment rooms , a VIP couple suite (with jacuzzi and private vanity desk), two separate relaxation spaces (for males and females), a manicure & pedicure room, stone sauna and an indoor swimming pool with thermostatic controls.

All these pics look amazing but nothing like what I saw when I went Hanoi last month haha. Maybe coz I stuck to city central? The things that stood out for me was the lack of traffic lights and scooters ALL over the place :sweat:

An Essay On Hanoi, Vietnam

Image

Crossover bridge to Ngọc Sơn Temple © The Luxe Brigade

A new year had just barely arrived, yet 11 degree chilly winds were already engulfing the old quarter - an oddly stitched canvas of modernity, outright decrepit and historic excesses. An unscripted fashion parade of sorts unfolded as its citizenry scrambled to keep warm in style outdoors: down-filled parkas, woollen textured beanies, puffer vests, rabbit fur gloves and brogue leather boots. Apocalypse Now played at every turn where dwelling intersected asphalt, as cars and bikes alike (having scant regard for rules of the road) weaved maniacally through spluttering traffic, alongside veteran jaywalkers seen crossing streets with poise and timed precision. The warm aroma of phở (a Vietnamese rice noodle dish) from endless rows of makeshift stalls teased rumbling tummies passing through, spiked in occasion by the distinctly strong scent of local coffee wafting from a random cafe door left slightly ajar.​

Hoàn Kiếm Lake abutting the 36 streets cluster (as the old quarter is popularly known) beckoned with a most surreal atmosphere of tranquility skirting its turquoise waters, while one storied turtle tower installed atop an islet held vigil right in the middle of everything. Aspirations of self renewal certainly heightened amidst witnessing episodic floral blooms all around the basin - a lil' nod to better fortunes, improved health and genuine spiritual fulfillment. Let's hear it for the Hope & Love sculpture as well yo.

Ngọc Sơn Temple featured prominently in the lake's northern region, made accessible by a bright red wooden arching connection named the Welcoming Morning Sunlight Bridge. Purchase of tickets at nominal prices granted free rein to explore various sites on its premises, these including the Pen Tower (Tháp Bút), the Ink-Slab (Dai Nghien), the Moon Contemplation Pavilion (Dac Nguyet) and the Pavilion Against Waves (Đình Trấn Ba).
