I spent 8 days in Hanoi last year (by myself) and never left the Old Quarter. (But once, and that's another story :)
Got up every morning, went to the same little dive for glasses of coffee with the dollop of condensed milk in the bottom, an iced tea and ShuangXi (I brought them from here)
Did nothing but spend the days, walking, eating and sleeping. (And I loved it)
I've got to go back cos I really didn't do or see anything...
