  • Hanoi Travel Guide

    Hanoi, the capital city of Vietnam, is a bustling metropolis with plenty of motorbikes, cars, bicycles and people rolling in streets everyday. However, it is far less cosmopolitan and more traditional Vietnamese than Ho Chi Minh city. The wear and tear of old buildings along streets together with the images of Hanoian relaxing in front of their houses make you feel back in time. Looming in some streets of Hanoi, the remnants of French colonial architecture appear like a witness to turbulent period of Hanoi. That, coupled with the rich history makes a visit to Hanoi much more meaningful. Be a traveler, surely that you want to travel to a destination with convenient transportation which helps you easily travel to other places and Hanoi is an ideal destination for that. It is a gateway to Northern Vietnam and normally many travelers think that Hanoi is just a quick transit city. However, we encourage you to spent few days and discover that entire city has to offer.
