Beware of aggressive vendors in Hanoi

  • Hanoi probably has some of the most aggressive vendors I've experienced anywhere
  • Especially in the Old Quarter, after 6pm, when all the restaurants and bars targeting tourists are in full swing. This girl physically grabbed my arm and tried to drag me into her restaurant
  • Much better elsewhere in the city. I only came across 1 instance of a scooter dude again physically touched me to try to get me to take his scooter
