A pleasant, hassle-free vacation begins with getting to know a little about your destination. It's time to familiarize yourself with the basic details about Hanoi!
Hanoi is the national capital city of Vietnam. If you want to find it on a map, it's 55 miles (89 kilometers) west of Haiphong, a noteworthy city.
Eager to mix with the locals? That shouldn't be an issue. 1,400,000 people call this area of Northern Vietnam home.
Experience the fabulous flavors of this city by checking out attractions like Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and Hoan Kiem Lake. If you've got a little more time up your sleeve, the Temple of Literature and the Thang Long Water Puppet Theatre are worth visiting too.
Used as a house of worship and spiritual meditation, St. Joseph Cathedral is a notable structure. That said, you need not be a regular church-goer to explore this soothing space. Like some more ideas? Try to picture the age-old secrets hiding within Presidential Palace as you behold its impressive facade. But that's not all there is. Built to pay homage to one or many gods, temples offer travelers a riveting look into another culture and religion. Learn about the local belief system as you wander through the spiritual sanctuary of One Pillar Pagoda.
Get set for some wonderful adventures in Hanoi. Once you've wandered out of Noi Bai International Airport (HAN), the middle of town will be just 13 miles (21 kilometers) away.
