Many people prefer Hanoi to Saigon, but for me it was the opposite. Hanoi does have a nice lake in town and the residence of Ho Chi Minh, who is credited with freeing Vietnam from French and US occupation. As usual, the most interesting parts of a country are often outside the main cities. In Vietnam I didn't have time to see them.
