Trang was fantastic! We touch down at Hanoi about 3pm and craving for food. Trang, our guide was very attentive to detail, she ask if we're allergic to anything before bringing us to the right place. In Hanoi, there is still a lot of food places which u can only order if u speak the local languages, we had 6 different food in one night. Needless to say, we love how we started our Hanoi trip with so much amazing food!
