About your host, Hanoi Papaya

Born and raised in Hanoi, we are crafty kids of Hanoi Papaya team, who grew up attached to this city in many ways. We've been hosting on Airbnb since Aug 2017 and it helps to satisfy our wish to spread the Hanoian spirit by providing best insights of Hanoian culture and to give tips on food, art & craft experience, unique shopping & souvenir spots. Our Experiences are uniquely solely about arts and crafts because we think Hanoi needs more people who love it for what's in the city's soul. Our Airbnb homes are nothing like "just another hotel experience", so be ready to open up and explore the local culture and values! Excuse us for not being professional hosts. We are local Hanoians, all having a full time job, just like everybody else l but we are lucky enoug
