About Hanoi

Hanoi, a former French colonial city, is known for its delectable cuisine, charming nightlife, vibrantly colored silks, and traditional handicrafts. Located on the banks of the Red River, this capital city of Vietnam boasts a multicultural community, a very well-preserved, ancient architecture, numerous religious shrines, and several museums that preserve the turbulent history of an extremely rich, Southeast Asian culture. Spread over a large area, the city’s Old Quarter is where tourists can find the heart of the city.

With numerous Chinese and French influences and more than 1000 years of history, the majestic Hanoi may have lost some of its former glorious nicknames (including Thang Long or "the Ascending Dragon"), yet it hasn't forgotten its past. This charming capital city has aged well and made extensive efforts to preserve its iconic Old Quarter, its monuments, as well as its colonial past. At the same time, it has made room for modern developments. It is an important economic powerhouse of the country and has been rated one of the most dynamic cities worldwide. Hanoi is the second largest city of Vietnam in terms of population.

Along with a thriving urban culture, tourists can enjoy the natural beauty of the region, as the city is surrounded by hills and valleys dotted with charming villages.

Experiences

How to be active in Halong Bay: 

  • Join the Halong Bay cruise.
  • Go for a hike at the Ba Vi National Park.
  • Try the Hanoi countryside bike tour and enjoy the green scenery outside the bustling city.
  • Take various cooking classes offered by almost every five-star hotel and other local restaurants that will certainly fit your budget and schedule. 
  • Experience the spa treatment found in many five-star hotels and stand-alone outlets; this is just the right remedy after a long day of exploring the city.
  • Visit Vietnam’s most magical sight, the Halong Bay dotted with amazing tiny islands, caves, grottos, and fairytale forests.
  •  Sit by the roadside at Bun Cha Nem Cua Be Dac Kim (87 Duong Thanh), where you can enjoy the bun cha (barbecued pork and rice noodles in a tasty broth) for only 60,000 VND (£1.90).
  • An absolute must-try is the local egg coffee (ca phe trung). Somewhere between a beverage and a dessert, this is made of beaten egg whites which are poured over espresso coffee, resulting in a mousse that’s utterly delicious.
  • Have you ever eaten dog meat? Or, would you ever want to eat man's best friend? If you didn't know, dog meat is part of the local cuisine.
