Foreign friends join in Hanoi’s birthday party

Foreign friends join in Hanoi’s birthday party, Vietnam travel guide Many overseas visitors felt happy and extremely lucky to be in Hanoi for its millennium anniversary, both those who have lived in Hanoi for many years as well as newcomers to the city.

The Palestinian Ambassador to Vietnam Saadi Salama, who has been working and living in Hanoi for years, said he felt lucky to have the opportunity to witness Thang Long-Hanoi’s anniversary.

Hanoi , in his eyes, has a unique beauty, with peaceful scenes, shady streets and small rivers, especially Long Bien Bridge and the city’s small residential enclaves. “These sweet memories of Hanoi will always remain in my heart, ” he said.

The beauty of the 1,000 year-old city has been captured in his photos. Six of them were showcased at a recent exhibition on Hanoi through the eyes of international friends, held by the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations in late September.

The newly-appointed Chilean Ambassador Fernando Urrutia, who has been in office in Hanoi for only two months, said he felt privileged to witness Hanoi ’s 1,000 th birthday.

“I am so happy to live and work in Hanoi , it is so rich in culture.”

Having arrived in Hanoi several days before their 10 th wedding anniversary, Linda and Robert Plummer from Australia had special feelings about Hanoi.

“I love the dynamic, bustling life in Hanoi and am very happy to be a part of the city’s most important anniversary,” said Robert, adding that he and his wife will spend most of their time in Vietnam exploring Hanoi.

Mr. and Mrs. Jeff Hurley, from the UK , decided to return to Vietnam for Hanoi ’s millennium celebrations as they were very impressed by Vietnam and its people when they visited two years ago.

“While in Hanoi , we will visit the Thang Long royal citadel, a UNESCO recognised cultural heritage, to learn more about the city,” said Mr Hurley. (Source: VNA)
