Vietnam Hanoi

Hanoi

Capital city of Vietnam, known for its centuries-old architecture and a rich culture with Southeast Asian, Chinese and French influences.

Tips from the community

The capital city has it all: eateries that feel like at-home kitchens, ancient historical sights, ten cent street beers from old men with kegs, and pop-up pockets of vibrant nightlife. Head to the Old Quarter for some classic organized chaos that embodies everything to love about Vietnam, and check out the famed “Train Street” —where a train track runs right between homes.
