Hanoi. I didn't think it was that beautiful (despite what my dad told me about it- I just thought he really loved Vietnam). The city has soo much charm; I loved it. I also expected it to show some signs of the war, but it doesn't. Also, unlike what I expected, it's well structured.
Most cities have surprised me in one way or another. Maybe Vientiane surprised me the most, how a city in one of the poorest countries in the world could be so relaxed and pleasant and how I could identify myself with the people there even if we come from such different realities.
