Hanoi and Outskirts
True. Hanoi is an old city with atmosphere, history and soul. But in this old town, it is the young generation that reign. Scooters in colors of the rainbow circling the HoanKiem Lake in the early evening. Flirters. Lovers. Show-offers. Youngsters eating sunflower seeds and drinking homebrewed draught beer, at street corners on small red plastic chairs.
Adding to this lively side, Hanoi has its quiet places, and streets, artist workshops, and neighborhoods where nothing really changes. It is in the mix of old and young, and busy and Quiet that Hanoi’s distinct energy evolves.
Hanoi is the capital of Vietnam and has been it since the reunification of Vietnam in 1975. The metropolitan area has around 6 million people, but you feel it is smaller in size than Saigon in the south.
It makes sense that Hanoi is a favorite hangout for travellers before endeavoring on new adventures. By being the gateway to all adventures in the north, Halong Bay, Sapa, Babe lake you name it, most people ends up having quite a few nights and days here. And don’t mind.
An extra surplus being that if you favor Vietnamese food there are splendid restaurants to explore. Visit our service office and get some inspiration as to where to go for a food treat.
