Atrip to Hanoi makes for an incredible treat for the senses as you explore its bustling streets, rich culture, breathtaking scenery and impressive architecture.

The Vietnamese capital is such a vibrant spot that however long you decide to stay you will never run out of things to see, sample and discover.

When you holiday in Hanoi you can immerse yourself in the city’s culture and take in the wonderful landscapes on show during a visit to Hoan Kiem Lake. While you marvel at the idyllic sights at this calming spot, don’t be surprised if you see locals practising traditional tai chi as they look out onto the shore.

The city is also home to a wealth of great visitor attractions, including museums and temples, but no visit is complete without exploring the Old Quarter. The former merchant district has an old-world charm, complete with a mix of French colonial and ancient Vietnamese architecture and a network of narrow streets packed with traditional shops selling unique trinkets.

Vietnam offers a varied experience that’s hard to beat. Look no further than this ace Asian country for your next adventure.
