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.

The official title of the One Pillar Pagoda is Yanyou Temple, also known as the Lotus Pagoda, located on the southwest side of Ba Dinh Square. The temple is small, but it is very famous across the land. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that it stands on a pillar in the center of the lotus pond, meaning that a pure lotus blooms out of the bitter sea. There are a lot of local people who come here to offer incense wishes. Even the President Ho Chi Minh used to come from time to time.

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?

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.
