Hanoi

The crossroads of the traditional and the modern, Hanoi is where the old exotic Asian grace and the new dizzy Western pace intertwine. A pulsating political, historical and cultural hub, Hanoi buzzes with activity and flight. Catch hundreds of motorcycles whizzing past you in the narrow maze of streets while hawkers and peddlers ply their trade. Watch the rich and the affluent dine and dance their hearts out in the newest hotels and bars. Welcome to a city of amazing contrasts that is Hanoi.

Hotels

A fast-rising tourist hotspot, Hanoi is filled with a delightful range of accommodation options, ranging from the fashionable big names to the middle- and low-range guesthouses and hostels especially in the city’s timeless Old Quarter.

Food & Drink

A Mecca for those who dig Vietnamese local cuisine, Hanoi is the place to savor the all-time favorite Pho Ga (chicken noodle soup) or Pho Bo (beef noodle soup). Teeming with roadside stalls, authentic seafood eateries, and trendy restaurants serving both local and international cuisines, Hanoi is a pleasant aroma to the senses.

Shopping

A major attraction for handicrafts, furniture, antiques, silk, silver, embroidered clothes and other accessories, Hanoi’s Nha Tho Street is a one-stop shop for all your shopping desires. Lined with boutique shops, furniture stores, and decoration shops, this picturesque tree-lined street is a must-visit.

Nightlife

While not famed for its nightlife, most of the city’s entertainment is centered around Hoan Kiem Lake and the Old Quarter. Under a strict policy undertaken by local law enforcement officers, most nightlife venues are shut by midnight, which can take the shine off the city’s nascent entertainment districts.

Spa

Hanoi’s upscale hotels including Sheraton Hanoi Hotel and the InterContinental Hanoi Westlake include world-class spas that offer a variety of pampering and indulging services with pleasant-minded staff and unmatched hospitality.
