Pictures of a street restaurant in Hanoi (Vietnam)Collection of pictures of Hanoi, Vietnam. These are some pictures of a street restaurant in Hanoi, Vietnam, where you can taste exotic dishes such as snake, eel, turtle. The restaurant is very close to the central lake of Hanoi and few meters away from the cathedral. This restaurant is frequented by Vietnamese, on the other side of the street, there are lots of fast food restaurants, pizzerias, etc. Funny how the street restaurant was crowed and tourist restaurants (more oriented to foreign customers / tourists), were mostly empty.

Hanoi - city picturesPhotos of a building in Hanoi, Vietnam. Sightseeing in Vietnam, I found this building, situated in an outlying district of the capital, would be the equivalent of a subsidized housing in Spain. The apartments are old, its quality is quite poor. These buildings are for members of the Communist Party of Vietnam, officers and people related to the party

Photos of Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum - Ho Chi Minh tombSome pictures of Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum in Hanoi (Vietnam). Where the remains of the vietnamese leader are permanently guarded by 2 guards, that perform a changing of the guard every few hours. A white line, about 15 meters away from the mausoleum, denotes the limit of the tourist zone. Visitors are not allowed to cross the line.

Ho Chi Minh mausoleum is located in a huge esplanade. Also, there is a beautiful park (the citizens of Hanoi take great care of it). In the middle of the park, to the top of the mast, waves the vietnamese flag. The flag dimensions are close to the spanish flag in the Plaza de Colon (Madrid, Spain).

Pictures of the Presidential palace of Hanoi (Vietnam)The presidential palace is located a few meters from Ho Chi Minh mausoleum, opposite the house where Ho Chi Minh himself lived. The Vietnamese leader Ho Chi Minh, built a humble home made of wood, as Ho Chi Minh didn't want to live in a palace, taking into account the situation of the country and in solidarity with the vietnamese people. The house, which can be visited, is located on the shore of a small artificial lake where Ho Chi Minh used to feed the fishes and meditate. To attract the attention of the fishes, Ho Chi Minh usually claps his palms. The fishes are get used to that sound and thousands of tourists and visitors, clap their hands and throw breadcrumbs into the water to feed the fishes, fishes eat in a few seconds all the food.
