Intercontinental Hotel in the Thuy Khue District in Hanoi.

I couldn’t take enough photos of the beautiful hardworking Vietnamese people and the above picture is perhaps one of my favourites. Staying at the Intercontinental Hanoi West Lake in Thuy Khue north of the city my balcony overlooked the lake and I watched this gent painstakingly collect the floating rubbish whilst rowing with his feet. Incredible I know.

Only here one night after visiting Halong Bay with the enchanting Indochina Junk cruises . The Intercontinental has a beautiful big lobby and the now expected usual but never taken for granted lovely Vietmanese welcome.

Here we enjoyed afternoon tea, early evening cocktails and canapés, a rest around the pool and a little exploring.

Didn’t make it to see the the remains of a B52 shot down in nearby lake but did enjoy walking in the area.
