Known for its chaotic roads, vibrant markets, delicious street food and long history, Hanoi is a special city. The Vietnamese capital is home to over 7 million people and a colorful mix of cultures, which have each left their mark on the city. The one-of-a-kind combination of Southeast Asian, French and Chinese influences give Hanoi a mesmerizing character that you simply won’t find elsewhere; sweeping French boulevards and elegant colonial-era architecture contrast starkly against the complex web of grubby alleyways that form the city’s Old Quarter.

Despite its rapid economic development, the city has maintained a firm grip on tradition. Visit the many museums, parks and memorials for a glimpse into the past of Hanoi as it hurtles toward the future. If you’re looking for history, culture and excitement, you’re in the right place.
