  • Textiles of Vibrant Vietnam - Hanoi, Mai Chau & Sapa

    DAY 1 - HANOI

    I have just arrived in Hanoi, Vietnam with a group from the UK. This tour has been organised by Arena Travel and we will be travelling the length and breadth of Vietnam, sampling the textiles (and the lovely food) all the way. Our afternoon starts at the Women's Museum to see the costumes, clothes and to hear about the lives of Vietnamese women over the last few decades. After that, we visit the Temple of Literature which was the first university in Vietnam. A rollicking white knuckle, adrenaline pumping rickshaw ride followed and the day was finished off with a lovely welcome meal at the Wildrice restaurant.
