The plant my company is building is just North of Cam Pha. Looking at your route map, it looks like you went right through there on Day 10.
I'd be interested in your GPS tracks if you have any.
Yes that is the industrial area I was less than complimentary about in my report on passing through that area. We just passed through so I am no position to make a definitive statement on what it would be like to live there. I'm sure you will learn a lot more on your exploratory trip. What I can state with some certainty though is that if you do go live there you will spend most of your free time far north of Hanoi, and also to the west of Hanoi. Both very cool areas.
