RE: SQ Business And Economy To Hanoi

We were original booked to stay at Hanoi La Siesta Hotel, but I suspected that due to overbooking, we were offered to be put up at the sister Elegance Ruby Hotel down the road for a night and was offered the Penthouse Suite.

Another traditional breakfast at the Tsui Wah café chain. The buns are good! <a href="https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpf1/v/t1.0-9/12011249_10153534822499017_8072840734865141142_n.jpg?oh=d1e761cd4c4a363042434dfd64ade8ff&oe=5697E8BB" target="_blank"><img src="https://scontent-lax3-1...
