Introduction to Hanoi

Hanoi - “the city between rivers,” is the official capital city of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam and it is also the second-biggest city.

Founded over 1,000 years ago and have been through years of historical events, Vietnam’s capital city is rich in history, and, as many citizens here state, “Hanoi is all about the past”.

As soon as you land in Hanoi, a must-visit place is in the heart of the city, surrounded by well-preserved colonial structures, historic pagodas, and distinctive museums. Some of the most fascinating cities in Southeast Asia, with a blend of Chinese and French influences and the vibrant Vietnamese culture, comprise the historic Old Town, the colonial French Quarter, ancient temples dating back more than a thousand years, and various scenic lakes and landmarks.

Apart from its ancient look, Hanoi serves as the nation's political, cultural, scientific, and technological hub and is significant to both domestic and global economies.

Let’s come with Vietnam Travels to explore this captivating city. And if you want meaningful Vietnam Tour Packages to discover the rich history of Hanoi, contact us right away for the best deals.

Hanoi Tourism

Over 600 pagodas and temples, as well as the Old Quarter, have been preserved by Hanoi throughout its turbulent 1,000-year history, which has been marked by destruction, war, and natural disasters. You can start your Hanoi tours with the One Pillar Pagoda, the Temple of Literature, the Hanoi Citadel, the Hanoi Opera House, and Hoa Lo Prison; they are just a few of the well-known locations.

In particular, you must not miss the chance to visit Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum when visiting Hanoi. Ho Chi Minh, the most beloved leader of Vietnam and a key figure in the country's independence, passed away in 1969. Vietnamese citizens then made the decision to construct a mausoleum in his honor as part of the Ho Chi Minh mausoleum complex.

In terms of cultural practices, Hanoi also employs many traditional handicrafts, such as bronze molding, silver carving, lacquer, and embroidery. The Bat Trang pottery village, the Ngu Xa bronze casting village, and the Yen Thai glossy silk village are just a few of the well-known traditional professional handicraft villages in Hanoi.

Hoan Kiem Lake, West Lake, and Truc Bach Lake are just a few of Hanoi's 18 picturesque lakes, which are the city's lungs and a vital source of energy thanks to the surrounding gardens and trees. This is why Hanoi is also known as “the city of lakes and rivers.” You would not want to miss the bike tour around West Lake when the sun goes down or walking around Hoan Kiem Lake in Hoan Kiem Walking Street and enjoying the vibrant nightlife in Hanoi with tons of singing, dancing, and traditional games.

Hanoi Weather

There are four seasons in Hanoi's typical tropical monsoon climate: spring, summer, autumn, and winter.

Hanoi's spring, which lasts from February to April, is hot, rainy, and humid. Typically, the average temperature falls between 15°C and 20°C. The best time for tourists to experience the dynamism of tropical nature is in the spring because this type of weather is suitable for plant growth and flower blooming. The longest and most important Vietnamese festival of the year, Tet, occurs in the spring.

Mid Autumn Festival

Mid-Autumn Festival

Fall is regarded as the most lovely and romantic season to visit Hanoi. The typical duration of this season is from the middle of September to the end of November. You should visit Hanoi in the autumn if you enjoy watching the leaves change color, eating some seasonal specialties like young green rice, and taking your time to appreciate the beauty of your surroundings.

With an average temperature of 17.2°C, Hanoi's winter weather will begin in December and could last until the end of February. If you don't want to catch a cold while traveling to a tropical country, pack some seriously warm clothing!

Hanoi Transport

There are many ways to travel to Hanoi based on your budget and interests. Vietnam Travels suggests that you choose one of the following modes of transport to start your Vietnam holidays:

By plane

Noi Bai Airport can serve both domestic flights from other provinces and international flights from various countries. Therefore, based on your starting point, if you are in another country, you can choose to fly directly to the capital city of Vietnam.

Noi Bai International Airport is located only 45 kilometers from central Hanoi. It’s very easy for you to find a taxi or book a private car to pick you up and drive you to your hotel or other tourist attractions. But you will not have to mind that if you have the help of Vietnam Travels, so contact us as soon as possible.

By train

The main train station in Vietnam is the Hanoi Railway Station, which you can choose to rely on. It serves as the starting point for five railway lines that go to almost all of Vietnam's provinces.

The main train station in Hanoi is situated on Le Duan Street, just outside of the Ba Dinh district and close to Hoan Kiem. The quickest route to this location is to travel west on Ly Thuong Kiet, which comes to an end at the station.

By bus

Hanoi is a massive transportation hub, with four bus stations and three train stations of use to foreigners. Sorting out where to go off what bus operators to choose can be time-consuming, so often you will be better off paying for the convenience of booking through a hotel or travel agency.
