Hanoi's metro system is one of my favorite things about the city. It's super easy to navigate, and it can take you all over the city. I'd recommend taking at least two stops on your first ride, so that you can get a sense of where everything is in relation to each other.

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!

I was lost my first time, I think that is common. I have been lost in New York City before using their subway stations. I feel like Hanoi is much easier than NYC though!
