A fascinating mix of old and new Vietnam with Chinese and French influences, Hanoi is changing quickly but maintains a strong sense of identity. Full of things to see, from the architecture of the Old Quarter and the French Quarter to Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum and the Temple of Literature, the Vietnamese capital lends itself to exploration. The city is also home to one of Asia's stronger indigenous culinary traditions and features a growing number of international dining options. Hanoi is very affordable by urban Asian standards, with the majority of hotels and restaurants offering plenty of value.
