Vietnam is definitely getting popular amongst travellers worldwide as a country of colourful cultures and beautiful attractions. From North to South, you would come to discover that this country seems to have it all: beautiful coastlines, magnificent mountains and highlands, dynamic cities, thousand-years rich cultures and incredibly delicious cuisines.
For such a country of many hidden charms, there will always be places to explore, both on the beaten tracks and off the beaten tracks. And no visit to Vietnam would be complete without a few days experiencing big-city life in the energetic capital city – Hanoi.
Hanoi – the fascinating blend of oriental chic and occidental flair often called the grand old dame of Asia, Hanoi lures visitors with the alluring sound of modernity (or of a thousand motorbikes swarming through the streets), the deep cultures of this four thousand years old city in the making and the sparkling ancient history.
Hanoi is also a true heaven for food-lovers. From symbolic dishes such as “Pho”, “Banh Mi”, “Bun Cha”, to numerous other delicacies of Northern Vietnam – you could easily find them all in Hanoi. Street food is as much of a culture in this city that you would not truly experience Hanoi until you’ve tried it. And thus, the places with the best food are often nestled in some small corner of a street. The best advice for trying street food in Hanoi would be “Go where the locals go” – so, best of luck for your food exploration.
And, if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, a Ha Long Bay with emerald tranquil waters and surreal limestone mountains or a Sapa with golden paddy fields and colorful ethnic minorities are just a few-hours drive away.
