Probably the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Spotlessly clean, immaculately presented, lots of helpful information about sights and tours and I felt really safe. It was very comforting to know that I was staying in a safe and clean environment especially when a lot of the hostels I had stayed in, including my 4-month stay in a hostel in Australia, give the air of bed bugs and numerous, dirty inhabitants. This was a breath of fresh air. Large dorm rooms and recreational rooms, an internet room with up-to-date software and a great bar which served amazing deserts!! The bar was a great place to meet people and the drinks offers made it so easy to start off drinking games and break the ice!
For only a few dollars, this museum gives an incredible insight into some of the history of the Vietnam war as well as even earlier history. There are B-52s, tanks and other aircrafts around the outside as well as a historical watch tower that you could climb to the top of to take in the view of the surrounding area. If you want to know more about Vietnamese history this is a definite must-see.
Geez: Vietnam has a SERIOUS history of war. This sometimes-brutal Hanoi museum chronicles several centuries of Vietnamese warfare in a propagandist mode, focusing particularly on the liberation struggle against the French, and the tragic American War. Signs on exhibits like, "This knife was used to kill a traitor" at times seem needlessly brutal, but it's an interesting place to learn about the horrors that have made, in part, modern Vietnam what it is today. The sculptures of war wreckage and retired military jets and tanks also manage to be thoroughly interesting, though this isn't the achievement that the War Remnants Museum in Saigon manages to be.
The Vietnam Military History Museum is located in the center of Hanoi, next to the Hanoi flag. This museum is divided into indoor and outdoor areas. It collects and displays tens of thousands of military artifacts and pictures, especially thousands of precious objects during the Anti-French War and the Vietnam War. Among them, the most eye-catching exhibits are the 105mm cannon. It was one of the two cannons used in the 1954 Dien Bien Phu battle and the bicycle used in the battle. The Military History Museum displays a large number of military weapons that actually participated in the fierce war and the military remains from the war, which is impressive. Especially military fans who are interested in the history of the Vietnam War.
