Lowlights;
1) People - rude, aggressive, lying, always on the make (partial generalisation)2) Hotels - multiple names, refuse to return your passports, constantly selling tours, lie about their facilities
3) Hanoi - no end of hassle and rude/aggressive people - very disappointing and not a good welcome to the country
