The Vietnamese capital is a fascinating blend of colonial charm, traditional architecture and modern influences. Hanoi attracts travellers with its amazing historical landmarks, spiritual culture, and atmospheric parks. Also, it provides the perfect base for anyone wishing to explore Vietnam’s exciting northern region.
Attractions in Hanoi
Hanoi is teeming with attractions, from the glamorous yet bizarre Ho Chi Minh Museum, to the sun-worshipping grounds of Bach Ma Temple. Though it is possible to see Hanoi on a short trip from Singapore over the weekend, it's a very interesting city worth exploring for at least a week. Stay in a Hanoi hotel in the City Center or Hanoi Old Quarter for an easy base for sightseeing.
Hanoi Museums are found throughout the city, and these offer both cultural and historical exhibits. Tourists should check out the National Museum of Vietnamese History, and Ho Chi Minh Museum and Mausoleum. The Hanoi War Museum, which details Vietnamese long military history, is also a must-see.
Scattered across the cityscape are Hanoi’s wartime landmarks too. Hoa Lo Prison reminds visitors just how brutal the French-colonial period was for the local Vietnamese. Hu Tiep Lake, which is where an American B52 bomber was shot down and crash landed, is open for visitors.
There are several parks worth exploring in and around Hanoi. Lenin Park becomes a centre of activity in the afternoons and on weekends. In the centre of town, Hoan Kiem Lake welcomes leisure goers each day, including picnickers and plenty of elderly tai-chi groups. Also, in the middle of the lake stands the iconic Turtle Tower.
Of course, all visitors to Hanoi must uncover the French colonial atmosphere of the Old Quarter. It boasts winding alleyways and atmospheric streets that are lined with stunning colonial and pre-colonial buildings.
Food in Hanoi
Street food is king in Hanoi. Vendors and stalls can be found in almost every spot around the city, particularly in the evenings. Pho, a simple yet popular Hanoi noodle dish, is available in both restaurants and street-side dining spots. There are upper-class restaurants found in Hanoi, especially in the major hotels. Ta Hien Street, in the Old Quarter, is the heart of Hanoi’s nightlife. However, plenty of bars and cafés are located within this district. Even though they close relatively early, these spots do offer an interesting night out for travellers.
Shopping in Hanoi
Hanoi is home to a range of markets, which are fantastic places for picking up bargains on just about anything. The Night Market in the Old Quarter is highly recommended. Dong Xuan Market, a wholesale produce spot, is not only a great place to buy cheap goods, but a fun experience too. However, modern malls are also available in the city. Trang Tiem Plaza near Hoan Kiem Lake, Vincom Royal City Megamall and Lotte Department Store are a sample of Hanoi’s modern shopping marvels.
