About Travel to Hanoi
Hanoi is a very old city. The city was officially founded in 1,010 but the location had been inhabited for at least 4,000 years before. There are lots of places to visit in Hanoi, some very old, as a consequence.
The most popular part of Hanoi for visitors is Hoan Kiem district, which is better known as the ‘Old Quarter’. This part of Hanoi features lots of narrow streets lined with European influenced town houses. Many of these grand old townhouses have been re-purposed into hotels and restaurants and one of the pleasures associated with staying in the Old Quarter is the chance to stay in one of these historic buildings.
In many way the Old Quarter is the most foreigner friendly part of Hanoi. English is spoken widely and menus are typically in English as well as Vietnamese. Also, lots of bus services to popular destinations such as Sapa and Cat Ba Island depart directly from the Old Quarter saving holiday makers the effort of taking a taxi to an out of town bus station to commence their onward journey.
There are also lots of things to see in the Old Quater including:
- The Bach Ma Temple
- Hoan Kiem Church
- St Joseph’s Cathedral
Other Places to Vist in Hanoi
Hanoi’s Old Quarter is great, however, there are lots of other places in the city worth visiting, many of which are either on Ba Dinh or located between Ba Dinh Square and the Old Quarter. The distance between the Old Quarter and Ba Ding Square is short enough to allow visitors walk there so as long as they have adequate breaks on the way to recover from the heat.
Particularly notable attractions within walking distance of the Old Quater include:
- The Temple of Literature
- The One Pillar Pagoda
- The Presdiential Palace (where Ho Chi Minh’s tiny private bungalow is located)
- The Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum
- Imperial Citadel of Thang Long
