Sometimes the most unexpected experiences can occur close to home. I looked into our garden to see this handsome chap.
One of the most memorable days we had while travelling in Vietnam was to do a Hanoi Kids tour. Being the sceptical, cynical bloke that I am when my wife said there is a tour where university students take you around Hanoi for free. My response was whats the catch. There was none. We met a lovely woman who tailored the day we wanted and took us around explaining the history of different spots we visited. She also took us to a lovely spot for lunch. We did pay for her lunch, the taxi rides and gave a donation at the end of the tour to the organisation that runs Hanoi Kids, but you are under no obligation to do this.
If you’re in Hanoi then contact Hanoi Kids. There is a reason that they consistently get five-star reviews on trip advisor. Check out my review of Hanoi Kids and others of our time in Vietnam at kiwiinbrighton or specifically for Hanoi Kids at http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g293924-d1752779-r269631182-HanoiKids_Tour-Hanoi.html

If you are from NZ or Australia and have an ANZ bank account your in luck. In Hanoi and Saigon there are ANZ ATMs. Withdrawals are free. That’s right you can take out millions of dong without paying a fee. If you do not have an ANZ account the ATMs allow up to 5 million dong withdrawals which is still a saving with many ATMs having limits of 3 million or less.
