visit Hanoi

In every stone that constitutes the city of Hanoi, a testament to the country’s unrelenting character and sturdy spirit lies. The modern capital of Vietnam has been a principal city throughout the glorious imperial and colonial periods, having endured the violent years of the Vietnam war in later years. But today, Hanoi’s story is far from being poignant. The traces of war only manifest in grandiose buildings that embellish the Old Quarter. As for its ambiance, local hotspots like markets and stalls are brisk and full of life.

City tours in Hanoi are splendid, surrounded by the sweet hustle of traders and people zooming by on their scooters. In the cultural center, the Temple of Literature lies as a stark example of Vietnamese architecture. Once the site of the first university in Vietnam, the complex pays homage to the illuminating scholars. Confucius is the most recognizable. The temple has been a beacon for the most brilliant students in the country. For a more scenic site, head a few minutes south to Hoan Kiem Lake. Ngoc Son Temple sits serenely on a small islet at the lake’s center in perfect harmony with the idyllic setting. Bach Ma Temple and the mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh are among other must-see destinations in the Old Town, each home to precious imperial and cultural laurels.

From dawn till dusk onward, the Old Town dazzles as a warren of beer halls, street stalls, and endless entertainment that brings together locals and travelers. Keep in mind that In Hanoi, street food is as valuable a sight as any temple, making a stroll among the stalls all the more rewarding.
