Hanoi Attractions

Nestled into Vietnam's northern corner, Hanoi is a jumping off point for many backpackers and holiday-seekers looking to explore the stunning bays and cliffs of Ha Long Bay and the terraced and misty mountains of Sapa to the west. But this capital city isn't just a hub for adventures elsewhere, it's a destination all its own. From historic landmarks that offer looks at the effects of French colonization and the Vietnam War to cultural sites that hint at the area's deep-rooted traditions that pull back centuries of old dynasties, there's plenty to check out inside the city limits. Whether you want to discover ancient architecture and heritage in the Old Quarter, indulge in a day of shopping at Vincom Times City Megamall or the silk street of Hang Gai Street, or simply stroll around the lakes and rivers that divide up the city's ever-growing grid of streets, there's no end to the things to do in Hanoi.
