What will I find if I book a hotel in Hanoi?
Hanoi is a real fusion of tradition and modernity. While much of the city is evolving at speed, the Old Town retains some of the eastern charm and history of its former self. You'll see local farmers selling their produce alongside citizens breakfasting on noodles, or playing chess in boutique eateries and practising martial arts on the lake shore. The local architecture is also truly unique, with evidence of the French and Chinese occupations apparent in many of the city’s buildings.
