In the spring, Hanoi has red and pink peach flowers while Saigon has yellow apricot flowers.
The Hanoians like eating at sidewalk restaurants, with "portable" plastic tables and chairs. The Saigonese often go to indoor restaurants.
The breakfast of the Hanoian is pretty full while a cup of coffee may be the breakfast of the Saigonese.
Beginning the meal, Hanoians are busy with inviting each others to eat while the Saigonese do not have that rule in the family.
A quick lunch? It is bun cha (vermicelli and grilled chopped meat) for the Hanoian and broken rice with pork, beef, etc. for the Saigonese.
The Hanoian prefer the salty, sour and bitter tastes than the Saigonese. Sweet and spicy are preferred by Saigon people.

Hanoi people receive guests with a cup of hot tea. Saigon people offer guests with mineral water or soft water.
In Hanoi, it rains all day long, even from day to day. In Saigon, it rains and then it is sunny.
The Hanoi is attached importance to rituals and social status.
The difference in the voice of the people of Hanoi and Saigon? Let's imagine the difference between the sound of the piano and the violin.

Traffic congestion is common in both Hanoi and Saigon but it seems that the Hanoi people are better in passing through flows of vehicles.
