  The Tortoise Tower in Hoan Kiem Lake, Hanoi.
by worldkiwi

Hanoi is a vibrant and enthralling city. It can be a major assault on your senses, especially if you stay in the Old Quarter, but it is a city full of unforgetable experiences.
Walking is a great way to explore the Old Quarter, a virtual urban forest of amazing sights, sounds, and smells. Other parts of Hanoi are quite stately and reflect the city's status as Vietnam's capital. This city has plenty to keep the traveller enthused and exploring. See my Hanoi page for more details.
