{travel} Bangkok and Hanoi 4 Days Itinerary and Expenses

Bangkok and Hanoi has always been a magnet for travelers. Whether cultural or gastronomical, these cities will surely satisfy your wanderlust cravings for diverse experiences and scenic attractions.

Me and my friends went here for an epic adventure with only 4 days to explore! I must say, it was one helluva a trip! We got to sleep in the airport, communicate and navigate thru apps, carry loads of bags (souvenir shopping), have #ootd mishaps, got scammed but it was all worth the experience that made our trip all the more memorable and fun! :D

Prior to this trip, we did our usual research but we never got to finalize the details on where to go and how. We just went there with our mobile maps on hand and off we go!
