The Grand Tour Continues Chicago to Vietnam skimming the Arctic Circle

Here a few photos of my Vietnam Airlines Flight from Chicago to Noi Bai Intl Airport Hanoi the capital of Vietnam. Unlike the easy coastal approach to Danang Intl Airport or Tan son Nhat at Ho Chi Minh City, Noi Bai is flanked to the north by Liam Bian mountain and ranges making for a considered approach down into the valley to Hanoi. Worth the trip from your home airport. I hope you enjoy the trip.
