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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Old Quarter and Hoa Lo Prison. Visit Temple of Literature & National University and Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum for their historical value. There's much more to do: examine the collection at Vietnamese Women's Museum, get engrossed in the history at Ancient House, don't miss a visit to Chùa Lý Triều Quốc Sư, and view the masterpieces at Empty Wall Gallery.
