About Hanoi

Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, is known for its centuries-old architecture, rich culture and beautiful lakes with Southeast Asian, Chinese and French influences. Hanoi’s Hoan Kiem Lake is a significant tourist attraction along with the Hanoi Landmark Tower. St. Joseph's Cathedral is also another great attraction visited by masses of tourists and visitors every year. Hanoi is one of the top honeymoon destinations for newlyweds in Vietnam.

The Long Bien Bridge of this city, formerly one of the longest bridges in Asia, was designed by a French architect named Alexandre-Gustave Eiffel. You may remember him from such other famous monuments as the Eiffel Tower and the Statue of Liberty.

Any cultured foodie will best know Hanoi and Viatnamese food for Phở (Noodle soup) and Bún Thang. Less famous internationally, but an exotic meal enjoyed dearly by Hanoi locals is Xoi xeo, a sticky rice topped with ground de-hulled mung bean and fried onion.

The houses in Hanoi are super narrow because property tax is based on the width of the building.
