Hanoi Holidays Overview

Vietnam's capital, Hanoi, offers a fascinating mix of East and West, with a mixture of French with traditional Vietnamese culture. The city has been undergoing a building boom recently. Hanoi is Vietnam's main cultural centre and it is a city where dynasties left their mark over the centuries.

Hanoi's Old Quarter is a cultural centre known for small shops and artisans. There are a number of bars, clubs and restaurants in the area, along with a night market. Some of the main attractions in the area include the Flag Tower, One Pillar Pagoda and the Temple of Literature.

Having been under French rule for a number of years, Hanoi still showcases French architecture in every part of the city. Tree lined boulevards, expansive mansions and villas can be found everywhere. The best examples of colonial architecture in the city are the Grand Opera House, Presidential Palace, Hotel Metropole and St Joseph's Cathedral.

Hanoi offers a number of exciting entertainment options. Traditional and modern theatres, bowling alleys, shopping, dance clubs, karaoke bars and cinemas offer ample leisure activities. Several new art galleries in Hanoi showcase contemporary Vietnamese art, such as that of Nhat Huy of the Huynh Thong Nhat.

Hanoi is regularly listed as one of the top Asian cities for shopping and it is often recognized for its cuisine. The city is known for its rich food traditions, such as dishes like pho, which is loved all around the world. Large malls, boutique stores and shopping centres, as well as traditional street markets, can be found almost anywhere in Hanoi.

Hanoi holidays - Top Places To Go

1. Old Quarter
Hoan Kiem District
What is it? The ancient meandering streets of the Old Quarter are each named after the crafts and speciality trades traditionally practised by the original artisan's guilds in the 13th century. Each guild was grouped around a temple, or dinh, dedicated to the particular beliefs of the village from where the guild originated, and many of these temples are open to the public today. The early merchant's quarter affords an intriguing glimpse into life centuries ago with covered markets, and the ancient narrow buildings that still line the streets, known as tube or tunnel houses that contained shops. Businesses were taxed according to the width of their storefront and resulted in shops only seven foot (two metres) wide with a series of storerooms, workshops and living quarters extending behind to a length of up to 197ft (60m). Many streets are still devoted to a predominant trade such as silks, religious objects or textiles, silver jewellery, antiques, and there are numerous art galleries and craft stores, as well as cafes and pavement restaurants lining the narrow streets.

2. Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum
Hung Vuong and Le Hong Phong Streets, Ba Dinh Square
What is it? Ba Dinh Square was where, in 1945, Ho Chi Minh read out the Declaration of Independence and where independence is celebrated each year. Dominating the west side is the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum where the embalmed body of the 'father of the modern state', 'liberator of the Vietnamese people' and beloved public figure is displayed. The body of Ho Chi Min is enclosed in a glass case, the traditional way to honour famous communist leaders. Security is tight, there is a strict dress code and it is imperative to maintain a respectful demeanour while inside. Nearby is the Ho Chi Minh Museum that commemorates his life, housing a collection of military orders, correspondence, manifestos and photographs that illustrates the crucial role he had in the country's history. Hours of Operation: Open from Tuesday to Thursday between 7.30am and 10.30am (8am to 11am in winter), and weekends from 7.30am to 11am (8am to 11.30am in winter); closed on Mondays and Fridays. The mausoleum is closed for two months of the year, usually October and November, when Ho Chi Minh's body goes to Russia for maintenance Phone:(04) 845 5128



3. One Pillar Pagoda
Ong Ich Kiem Street, Ba Dinh District
What is it? One Pillar Pagoda was constructed to celebrate the tale of the heirless Emperor Ly Thai Tong, who dreamt about receiving a son from the Buddhist goddess of mercy and compassion, seated on a lotus flower. He married shortly after and bore a son, and the pagoda was built to honour the event. It is the most interesting of the city's numerous pagodas, and beneath the ornate curved roof people come to pray for fertility and wellbeing, with allegedly miraculous effects. The unique wooden structure was designed to resemble a lotus flower, the Buddhist representation of enlightenment, emerging out of the water, with the single stone pillar its symbolic stalk.
