We had a great time exploring the city. So many food stalls. We took the time to do a food tour with http://streetfoodtourshanoi.blogspot.jp/?m=1. We had a blast. It also helped to explain how many of the street food vendors work, how to order, what to watch for, etc. Well worth the time and $$.
We also took a cooking class that we enjoyed. We learned to make spring rolls and 2 other pork dishes. We enjoyed the fruits of our labors at the conclusion of the class.
If you come to Hanoi you definitely want to have street food and learn to cook Vietnamese dishes.
