NORTH VIETNAM: HANOI & HA LONG BAY
Arriving in Hanoi, the Asia travel adventure continues in the communist capital of Vietnam.
Arriving in Hanoi by train from Beijing, China, the Asia travel adventure continues in the communist capital of Vietnam, Hanoi. Head underground with hosts Nathan and Seamus as a hotel in Hanoi uncovers a recently discovered bomb shelter where Jane Fonda was reported to have played during air raids. Explore the winding alleyways of the Old Quarter markets with amazing water puppet shows, temples and shops. Experience the Vietnam War (or American War as it is called in Vietnam) history with a visit to the "Hanoi Hilton" prison. The Travel With Kids family then heads east to witness the fabled gum-drop mountains of Ha Long Bay. On a traditional Asian wooden boat, Nathan & Seamus explore ancient caves, white sand beaches, rural rice paddies and small villages rarely seen by outsiders. Plus, find out what happens when Seamus suffers a broken foot in a boating accident. Will the family find proper medical attention back in Hanoi, or is their Asia adventure finished?
