So this popped up on my dashboard. This is quite literally across the street from my house. Right behind this photographer is Huu Tien/B-52 lake. The area where this is taken is Ngoc Ha, and while it was once a separate village apart from Hanoi, it has very much become part of the city now. I have always told people that if you want to see normal, regular, Hanoi, away from all of the bustle of the tourist areas, come to this spot in particular. Low and behold that I found a guidebook that actually said the exact same thing.
