The capital of Vietnam, Hanoi has bounded back from the effects of war, and today serves as a bustling commercial and cultural hub bursting at the seams.
You've now added Ha Long Bay Daily Tours to your itinerary. Your inner history buff will appreciate Old Quarter and Hoa Lo Prison. Head to 54 Traditions Gallery and Bui Mai Hien Galleryfor some retail therapy. There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake of the Restored Sword (Hoan Kiem Lake), steep yourself in history at Temple of Literature & National University, examine the collection at Vietnamese Women's Museum, and admire the masterpieces at Ho Chi Minh Museum.

A curious mix of developed beachfront tourism and untouched local city life, Da Nang presents an often-overlooked but authentic and welcoming picture of central Vietnam.
