Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, is known as one of the most ancient capitals in the world. The city is located in northern Vietnam and is situated on the western banks of the river, Red River. The beauty of this city lies in its liveliness of the bustling streets where workshops and cafes all perform outdoors on roadsides.

As one explores the place on foot, the lively atmosphere along with the mouthwatering odors of cooking from the kitchens makes them stop every now and then to simply relish the atmosphere.  The natural beauty of the city can be enjoyed when one visits the Ba Vi National Park located on a mountain range and known for its rich diverse flora and fauna and also animals. It is best to visit hanoi during Autumn or Spring as the city becomes very hot and rainy in summer and cold and dry in winter months.

While exploring this French-colonial city, visitors are enchanted to see beautiful pagodas such as One-Pillar Pagoda, The Perfume Pagoda and many more, colonial buildings such as Hanoi Opera House, the Imperial Citadel, etc. and unique museums such as H?a Lò Prison Museum, Vietnam National Fine Arts Museum, Vietnam Museum of Ethnology and so on. The city also has some beautiful lakes, bridges and parks where visitors love to spend some time.

The city’s delectable cuisines such as Banh Cuon, My Van Than, Pho Chien Phong and many more are  must try while visiting the city. Seating on the roadside plastic stools sipping local beer with snacks is another experience which is unique. Visitors also love shopping for silk and handicrafts which are  famous in Hanoi. The culture of this vibrant city shows glimpses of Chinese, French and Russian influences making the city more beautiful. A vibrant nightlife with activities such as Water Puppet Show or Binh Minh’s Jazz Club also attracts tourists in a mass.
