Hanoi & around

Hanoi is one of the most atmospheric cities. Its colonial architecture is a feast for the eyes; swarms of buzzing motorbikes invade the ear, while the delicate scents and tastes of delicious street food can be found all across the city. At the shores of Hoan Kiem Lake you can see the locals practice tai chi or stroll around. The city breathes a combination of Parisian grace and Asian pace.

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Hanoi city bring a visit to the bamboo-screened villages dotted among the paddy fields. Some of these communities have been plying the same trade for generations, such as ceramics, carpentry. Enjoy a bicycle ride through the countryside near Hanoi and meet with the local people.

Ha Long Bay is around 2,5 hours drive from Hanoi. It became a World Heritage site in 1994. More than 2000 limestone islets rise from the sea which gives it a mystical landscape. Although it is often compared to Guilin in China or Krabi in southern Thailand, in reality, Halong Bay is more spectacular.

Hanoi provides is a perfect base for excursions to Ha Long Bay, and to Sapa and the northern mountains.
