Pictures of Vietnam


Takem November 1999


The following pictures are from Hanoi, a beautiful city in Vietnam. Much of the city still retains the beauty of  French architecture that influenced the city many years ago. The city is green, with trees lining most streets, and parks and lakes are plentiful. Hanoi really is a jewel in Asia. Still developing the city offers some of the best hotels in Asia. The following pictures are limited due to weather conditions on our last visit in November 1999. We will be adding to them so please do check back.
