Hanoi City Tour

Hoan Kiem (“Restored Sword) Lake – The center of Hanoi

Beautiful landscapes, sunny beaches or magnificent mountains attract every single tourist, yet there is another destination you should never miss when travelling in Vietnam, it is Hanoi. Located right in the middle of Red river delta, the city of Hanoi has held both tangible and intangible values of the nation for thousands of years. It’s not only the head of Vietnam, where the Communist Government is based, but a center of culture, history and tradition, in which the typical characters of the locals are reflected as a nature of life.

In addition, Hanoi is really an interesting place for the ones who love unique architecture. It is like a lovely painting with two contrast parts. One is the Old Quarter established hundreds years ago with heaps of long, narrow and skinny houses; and the other – French Quarter – displays the elegant beauty of classic European architecture combined with Indochinese style. Walking through wide and pretty tree-lined boulevards, you will feel like you are in Paris of Far East.
