Hanoi holidays - Immerse yourself in the local lifestyle

Centuries-old architecture seamlessly blends with more modernised influences in this fantastic, bustling city. With cultural museums, markets, colourful temples and sumptuous cuisine, the capital city of Vietnam is not one to be missed. It's a place where travellers can immerse themselves in Vietnam's localities, eating noodles for breakfast and watching people practice t'ai chai in the park.

A taste of traditional Vietnam

Hanoi is quintessential Vietnam, where the charm and rhythm of ancient Vietnamese culture blends harmoniously with the modernising, capitalist future of the country.

As a former French colony, Hanoi has a lingering Parisian feel that makes it noticeably different from almost any other major Asian city.

Unlike Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) in the south, Hanoi is more relaxed and regal. Even though its southern counterpart is larger and a more impressive commercial centre, Hanoi makes for an excellent capital city. It is overflowing with museums and other cultural curiosities. And the food here is some of the most special that you’ll find anywhere in Vietnam.

Why visit Hanoi?

  • The national dish of Vietnamese is Pho, and it’s arguably at its best in the capital city where you’ll find numerous restaurants and cafes
  • Visit the Old Quarter, the bustling centre with narrow streets and a lively atmosphere
  • Try Bia hoi – a pale, refreshing lager that is brewed fresh every day and sold in tiny street bars at even tinier prices
  • A complete lack of shopping malls means that Hanoi is always a vibrant and authentic shopping experience
  • Enjoy the French aesthetics lingering alongside the delightfully Southeast Asian culture
