Such a cool part of the city, and I don’t mean the temperature! It was so humid! But walking around these old streets, watching people live their lives, discovering amazing old houses, was a treat. I loved it and would love to do it again....More

The old quarter exudes history at every turn. The French influence in this city is unmistakable. At every turn you can see the role that French architecture and the French had in this amazing city. A must go to quarter if you come to Hanoi.

Hanoi is worth a visit. Friendly, affordable and full of surprises. Museums worth visiting. Food inexpensive and good.

Difficult for tourists to avoid, invest in a facemask to help with very high pollution levels and you will be constantly brushing shoulders with scooters on and off the roads. Its chaos - but don't miss it.
