Hanoi has been the political capital of the country since its founding in 1010 by Emperor Ly Thai To. Dotted by lakes and parks, the city is lined with well-preserved French colonial villas, many of which have found new lives as stately embassies or fine dining restaurants. The Old Quarter in the heart of the city retains its trade traditions on the bustling ’36 Streets of 36 Wares’.
In contrast, travel outside the city centre to witness urban development evidenced by skyscrapers and shopping malls defining modern Hanoi.
