These are great tips, especially for people who have no experience with them. I know my first time, it was pretty confusing. Once you understand it though, it is actually easy to use!

I have been on a lot of different metro systems and Vietnam seems to be one of the most well-organized. The people who struggle know little or no Vietnamese and have not spent enough time in cities.

The first few times I used it, I was LOST! 

I ended up missing my train twice in one go. There were very helpful people around though and they didn't treat me differently. They pointed things out and I was on my way.

The Hanoi metro system is a great way to get around. We found it to be pretty easy to navigate, and it was a lot faster than taking a taxi! The only thing I would recommend is that if you're going to be using the metro for a long time, bring water with you. It's hot in Vietnam!
