Hi all, I just moved to Hanoi for work and am looking forward to getting out and seeing the city. I don't know anyone here, so I don't have a lot of guidance in deciding where to live. In short, I work in the center of the city and would like an easy commute, but would also like a neighborhood that is a mix of many things - local and expat, quiet and nightlife, streets and lakes. I know it's asking a lot, but I'd rather start by shooting for an ideal. In short, a place where I can go for a relaxing evening stroll, but also drop into a bar or restaurant when I want to get out of the house. Any suggestions appreciated! Freeform stream of consciousness appreciated even more.
