The most interesting and beautiful tourist sites in Hanoi
Photos, reviews, descriptions, and links to maps
Hanoi is a city with a unique flavour, a place where French, Chinese and Vietnamese traditions coexist in harmony. It was founded in the distant XI century and during this time managed to be the capital of several state formations. Today it is a modern developed metropolis, living in a frenzied rhythm, but retaining an unbreakable link with its rich past.
Tourists come to Hanoi to see Vietnamese architectural monuments and Buddhist pagodas, visit museums and traditional water puppet theatre, enjoy the beauty of the capital’s parks and plunge into the atmosphere of the Asian metropolis. As a rule, travellers spend a few days here and then go to the ocean shore in Central or South Vietnam.
