'Weird and Wow Hanoi', written by Christina Minamizawa, is a great book for all those people who want to know what Hanoi is ACTUALLY like. So many of the guides out there give references for hotels and bars which are useful but tell you nothing what so ever about the place. This guide gives you an insight into what you will experience when you live here and helps you to learn more about what to expect before you arrive. Don't feel you have to read it cover to cover either; just skim though and read whatever you're interested in!
