    My family..2 adults and 2 small children (ages 5 and 8) are heading to SEA for December.

    We plan on staying 4 days in Hanoi. Had a few questions thanks for the advice.

    weather..i am assuming between 15 and 20 degrees with some clouds but not much rain..is that safe?

    Ideally we would like to hire a private guide/car for 3 days to show us around hanoi upto perfume pagoda and also bich dong area..i havent seen where we could get the same guide for all 3 days..any suggestions? Also we would like to take a day off and just hang around a pool somewhere..being December i am assuming indoor pool is the way to go. Do any of the high end hotels offer day use of their pools and facilities? any other options?

    Thanks

    Dan

    Hi
    I'm a Vietnamese girl and i live in Hanoi , so i can show you where to go - the interesting places .
    -There are many bars , retaurants , ... for foreign travellers with reasonable price .
    -And there are also some high end hotels having pool with facilities in the central city .
    -It is sure that the weather is fine with a little rain in Dec .
    -Have you ever heard about Halong bay -a famous place
    to visit in the North ?

    I'll be glad to help you in guiding. I'm a student studying English want to practise with foreigners, and you dont have to pay me money . I was born and grew up in Hanoi , so i'm sure that i can show the best places to visit !

    Hanoi , u can add my Yahoo ID : ha.minhtran
