On our trip to Hanoi we came across a bunch of interesting things. The first one is the Riverside Hotel, actually so far away from the river that you couldn't even see it from the highest floor.

The second one is a café named Trippy Land. I would expect that name in good ol' Amsterdam, but in Hanoi? Odd...

And here... Now that one is impressive, seriously. Not just they had the Impressive Hotel, there also was an Impressive Restaurant. Impressive.

Oddities in Asia

Oddities in Asia is a cluster of pages containing very short posts about odd stuff I encountered in Asia. Usually just a photo with a short description:
Candles in Hanoi | Weird hotel names | More is more sometimes
Fake zebras | Fire in the woods | Paranoid Saigon
Fake sakura | Powermetal Hong Kong | The world is a pig
There is more to come. At least 20 more images are hiding somewhere in our database and living in Asia you encounter odd stuff every time you open your eyes. Well, the same can be said about Europe I think. Just have fun!
