Travel Guide to Hanoi
When in Hanoi, don’t forget to...
Learn about Hanoi in one of its fascinating museums. The Vietnamese Women’s Museum offers a wonderful insight into the role women have played in the country’s history. Exhibits cover marriage customs, clothing and culture.
Pay your respects to former president Ho Chi Minh at the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. Built in 1975, the grey granite structure houses the embalmed former head of state in its central hall.
Find peace in the centre of the city at West Lake. The freshwater lake is the largest in Hanoi and a place for locals to relax and admire the Tran Quoc Pagoda that sits serenely on an island in the middle.
Explore the colourful array of markets. Dong Xuan Market sells everything from light bites to clothes and home ware.
Try some local beer, freshly brewed each day. Pull up a plastic stool at one of the makeshift bars spilling out onto the pavement at Bia Hoi Junction.
