Hanoi Capital Overview
Hanoi is the capital city of the country located in the north of Vietnam. The mixture of old Asia, colonial French and new Asia's architecture gives the city its unique charm that will stay in your memory for a long time. While the whole city is packed with motorbikes passing the streets during morning till nighttime, crossing the street will always be an exciting challenge. The bustling streets of the Hanoi Old Quarter are filled with street bars, restaurants, shops and people, all combined under the French colonial style buildings.
Hanoi has much to offer for any type of tourists, from important historical sites that left their marks in the history of Vietnam, to enjoyable streets filled with shops and places of interest. Many museums, temples, parks and remnants of wars are present for more information about the happenings in the past that made Vietnam what it is today.
While other big cities in Vietnam are bulldozing through their city to catch up with the modern era, Hanoi is an historical museum that, bit by bit, evolves into a cultural capital city that has its own fascinating atmosphere. Even though the city is so large, the people stay kind and welcoming to everyone, no matter what language you speak, they will always try to strike up a conversation without caring whether they are understood or not.
