Hanoi, Vietnam

Hanoi was first made Vietnam’s capital more than 1,000 years ago by emperor Ly Thai To. It is the atmospheric historic heart of the country, and having been the capital of French Indochina from 1902 to 1953, is a fascinating fusion of French and Vietnamese culture, architecture and cuisine. The simple street dish, banh mi, epitomises this meeting of countries – light French-style baguettes are filled with pork, shredded carrots and cucumber, spiced up with coriander and chilli sauce for its distinctive Asian flavour. Explore the food while you explore the city: from the chaotic alleys of the Old Quarter, brimming with higgledy-piggledy shops and street eats, to the hip Tay Ho locale where trendsetters enjoy fine dining by the picturesque West Lake.
