E15***08The lake a is an amazing place to check out on the weekend. They close off the roads and people are out and about enjoying music, food and scenery. Sit and have a coffee during the day and eat, drink through the night. There are often performances and various music going on.

D29***58Worth a visit! It's very interesting to see, and they're quite strict about moving you along, no hands in pockets, etc. Don't come right when it opens, as there's a queue of tourists, to my surprise. When I left the queue had vanished and people could walk straight in.

Memorial Temple
_FB***03The Temple of Literature was beautiful. It was by far one of the most outstanding scenes in Hanoi. It is definitely worth it to wonder inside. There are beautiful gardens and amazing photo spots.

D36***76Stepping back in time to a place no one would ever want to end up. Imagine your feet shackled day in day out, no food no bathroom only the screams of your fellow men in the same pain and suffering as you. What did I do to deserve this, why have my captures done this, why why.The only thing to do is escape or face the guillotine.

Cultural History
Historic Landmarks
Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam and the second-largest city in the country. The interesting combination of western and eastern cultures offered by this city is famous worldwide. The architectural structures of the country have a hint of French impact along with Vietnamese pattern. Hanoi is one of the most famous tourist destinations of the world; sometimes called "Paris of the East" because of its French influences. The beautiful tree-fringed boulevards, thousands of Colonial-era buildings and many rivers streams rambling the city brings out the tourist from every corner of the world.

Vietnam's long and narrow shape and lengthy coastline provide the country with a wealth of recreational resources. Eating seafood and snorkeling are a must, and going out in rowing boats, swimming in the Mekong River, taking a mud bath, and watching the water puppet shows are just some of the special experiences you can have in Vietnam.

Gourmet Food
In Asia, street food is a way of living and for many their breakfast, lunch and dinner is straight off the Asian street food list and is all about Asian street food and more street food from Asian street food restaurants! No matter where in Asia you travel, the food is full of flavour and reflects the culture of the country. Day in and day out the street vendors dish out the perfect dish always freshly sourced, done simply and quickly, costing less perhaps than buying groceries and cooking your own meals in your own kitchen. Why then not just eat the street food?

Hanoi Travel Tips

About Hanoi

Hanoi is the capital city of Vietnam. This is a city that mixes old and new. Cultural heritage sites are scattered nearly everywhere you look. St. Joseph's Cathedral is built to look like the Notre-Dame de Paris. The whole place is completely suffused with various flavors of history. The Temple of Literature is a Confucian temple in the Chinese architectural style, and the clouds of incense in the One Pillar Pagoda indicate its importance as a popular place for locals to pray. Other than traces of antiquity, there are also many scenic spots related to Ho Chi Minh such as the Ho Chi Minh Stilt House, the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and the Ho Chi Minh Museum. You can go to Hoan Kiem Lake, where the locals like to stroll and cool off, or you can go to the 36 streets of the Old Quarter to buy unique local souvenirs. Once night falls, go to the Thang Long Water Puppet Theatre to watch Vietnam's national art form - the water puppet show - come to life.
