Tet Road Trip - Hanoi to Sam Son
After taking a bit of time in the morning it was time to leave Hanoi and head back.
This time it was only me for the journey home and without using Google Maps for any further navigation purposes but strictly only for showing the map.
Getting in and out of Hanoi always takes quite a long time, despite the light traffic around Tet it wasn't any faster.
Still, the outskirts of Hanoi are pretty scenic and once you do get out there are some great roads and views to take in.
The plan was to make it all the way to Vinh but it soon became clear that I left too late for this to work so I changed my destination for the night to Sam Son.
Sam Son is much nicer than Cua Lo out of season and it's a good spot to stop for the night. I went to visit the temple and met some of the locals there for a nice chat.
