Located on the banks of the Red River, Hanoi is a city where the historical culture of the country somehow, faultlessly, blends with the modern face of the new and vibrant Vietnam, all mixed with a dash of French elegance. Where hundreds of ancient temples and pagodas rub shoulders modern glass covered skyscrapers all reflected in one of the city’s many scenic lakes.
The city boasts more than 1,000 years of history and the majority of Vietnam’s Dynasties have left their mark, leaving Hanoi with more cultural sites than any other city in the country.
Step back in time in Hanoi’s Old Quarter with its leafy tree lined streets, ancient architecture and bustling daily life. Visit Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum, a traditional stilt house, the One-Pillar Pagoda, and the thousand-year-old Temple of Literature also known as the First University of Vietnam along with the Ethnology Museum and the Tao Sach pagoda.
Hanoi is also the perfect starting point to explore all that the north has to offer, including the mountain villages around Sapa and the endless limestone islands of Halong Bay.
