Nha Hang Thang Long Restaurant - Hanoi (Vietnam)

With this lunch and after the rickshaw ride at old quarter, it will be the end to the 9 days/8 nights to Vietnam/Cambodia tour. Now, before I conclude on the must-visit places, let me tell you about this restaurant. Upon arrival, we were ushered to the first floor dining area. Alongside with tucking into the dishes, entertainment came in the form of Cultural Music with the performers dressed in traditional costumes. I don't think anyone cared about the music as the focus was the traditional Vietnamese dishes.

Vietnamese rolls   
Steamed fish topped with onion, herbs and veggies.
Herbs roasted chicken
Grilled prawns and veggies in skewers
Grilled sugar cane chicken
Vietnamese prawn salad
For the vegetarians; lots of stir fried vegetable dishes, including the potato cutlets and taufu paired with dipping sauces. 

The sugar cane chicken and steamed fish were raved the most, other dishes were not too bad and since we will return home after this lunch, phone numbers were exchanged while I also heard about the possibilities of keeping in touch. I didn't throw my number around because I had no intention of keeping in touch with these people I met during this tour. Moreover, except for the one couple, I had nothing in common with them.      
After lunch, we departed  to the airport and then back home with mostly sweet memories of my first travel venture in a tour with unknown people. I survived. I loved the Vietnamese and Cambodian food, somewhat similar to our Malaysian food with lots of chillies, great places I visited, traffic jam is is crazy and the people overall considered as friendly though language is a barrier.

Places to visit in Vietnam and Cambodia -
Ben Thanh market  - bargain please.
Reunification Palace - Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam for the walk back to the war era.
War Remnants Museum - the pain and suffering of Vietnam war.
Angkor Wat -  a must visit.
Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum - overrated but still an experience.
Wat Thmey - to ponder over the tragic suffering.
Halong Bay - the stunning beauty.
