Nice car, bad car

Hanoians appreciate appearance, usually at a store, restaurant, or service, you will be evaluated by the staff from the moment you step out of the car, and for each different customer, the staff will behave differently. As for Saigon people, the car you ride is beautiful or ugly, it is not enough to evaluate your person
Streets and Districts
This is an interesting point between the two cities. If you’re in Hanoi, you don’t need to know which ward or district you’re in, just know the street name and that’s it. Friends who gather together just need to briefly say the house number and street name. And Saigon is very large, the districts are clearly separated from each other and there are countless streets with the same name. So, if you go to Saigon, you must remember the name of the ward and district where you want to go!
Words are diverse and rich, moreover, a delicate and polite lifestyle is ingrained, so even in swearing, Hanoians must be skillful.

In Hanoi, a bunch of green bananas is a very popular offering, both convenient and beautiful.

Autumn weather is cool, airy, light yellow light. Saigon is very simple, there are only 2 seasons: dry season and rainy season. In the dry season, the weather is hot and sunny during the day, with little rain. In contrast, in the rainy season, it rains every day, especially in the afternoon. The rain rots the soil rots the sand, the rain covers the road, the rain floods the street.
Sidewalk coffee – Tea with lemon tea
Not too fussy, people in Saigon are willing to sit in the trees near Notre Dame to chat some funny stories with friends and colleagues.

Moc Chau, Son La or Phu Tho, … are famous green tea hills providing fragrant cups of Northern tea.

However, the streets of these two cities are quite different. The streets of Hanoi are generally more invested with many overpasses, pedestrian bridges, and underpasses. The traffic light system is also quite scientific, and there is a surveillance camera system at the intersections. The streets of Saigon are smaller, do not seem modern, special.
