About Hanoi

Hanoi is the capital of Vietnam however it is not as bustling as Ho Chi Minh city (Saigon). It has a more rural vibe with the locals seemingly moving on a slower pace. Like every city, there are many tourist attractions. Among the most interesting are the Old Quarter, Hanoi Ceramic Mosaic Mural which runs for 4 kilometers along the Red River, Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, and Train Street. The Temple of Literature is just walking distance from CPC. Hanoi is also surrounded by many lakes. Taking a stroll at West Lake and Hoan Kiem Lake is a must for nature lovers.
