It was a marvellous tour on the way to become a kid. Receiving email 2 days before the tour, I knew that the guests this time would be nice like the way they wrote – so carefully and politely.
On November 3rd, 2012, Hanoikids’ Training Department organized a training event for members of Hanoikids in Vietnamese Women’s Museum – an increasingly important site for our tours. Arriving at 8 am, we were really eager to know about this site, especially the newbies, they arrived soon, all prepared to take notes and some even brought records and cameras! We had a small chit-chat to warm up the atmosphere before really starting the training. It was also the time for the oldies to get acquainted with the newbies.
A Hanoikids member savagely murdered at school X. No evidence found on the scene. Everything hit an impasse. A series of paranormal consequence followed- windows rattle, light bulbs dangle, peculiar noises heard. Rumor has it the school was haunted. The curse will never be broken until the root of evil is revealed.
The public bus system in Hanoi is very cheap but confusing, and few short-term visitors to Hanoi will attempt it. There are around 60 bus routes operated by five different bus operators, but information for all routes can be found on the website of the Hanoi Transport Management and Operation Centre (www.hanoibus.com). Monthly passes are available.
For many years, Vietnam formed part of the French colony of Indochina, along with Cambodia and Laos. In 1941, the Japanese occupied Vietnam during their WWII sweep through South East Asia. The resistance to the Japanese was led by the Indochinese Communist Party.
This Hanoi museum housed in a fine building has exhibits of artworks from prehistory to the present day. The displays on the first floor show fine art from the prehistoric era, while early 20th century work can be found on the second floor including examples of Soviet-influenced socialist realist works with peasants striking patriotic poses.

Hanoikids has gone a long way to its success today, and it would be a great mistake if the members are not mentioned in every single step that the club has moved.
