Nancy Chandler's Map of Hanoi by Julie & Isabelle, 2nd edition
When two residents of Hanoi created their own map of the city inspired by Nancy Chandler's maps, the team at Nancy Chandler Graphics was so taken with it, they signed them on as authors. The result: A stunning new map that shares the authors' love of Hanoi, this the 2nd edition. A treasure-filled guide, it shares the city's hidden charms, pinpointing special places and hard-to-find shops as well as great finds down Hanoi s little lanes including gardens and pagodas away from the hustle and bustle, and many useful tips. Nancy Chandler's Map of Hanoi includes detailed area maps of Downtown Hanoi, Greater Hanoi, the Old Town, and expatriate havens Tay Ho (the West Lake district) and Ciputra (a gated community with its own unique address system), as well as market maps of Cho Dong Xuan and Cho Hom. The map is accompanied by an 56 page pocket-size directory/guide covering hotels, bars, all kinds of dining (including ice cream shops and street food recommendations), cinemas, cooking classes, shopping, sightseeing, and advice for getting around. For expatriates, included are housing developments, international schools, veterinarians, dry cleaning, supermarkets, and more.
