About Travel to Hanoi
Hanoi is the capital of Vietnam, although a smaller and less developed city than Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) in the South. Hanoi has retained more of its Old World charm with maze of streets, buildings of different ages, and inexpensive restaurants and guesthouses. Hanoi is the more interesting and atmospheric of the two main cities in Vietnam and to add to the pulling power of Hanoi over Saigon, Hanoi is close to two of the country’s other major tourist attractions: Ha Long Bay and the hills of Sapa.
Hanoi is the cultural centre of Vietnam with parks and museums throughout the city, as well a historic Opera House. The influence of the French Colonialists on Hanoi is apparent in a number of ways. In terms of the architecture and the cuisine the French influence can be seen. There are many buildings which have been built using French design ideas and French style baguettes are commonly eaten along with very good quality coffee and patisseries.
The less obvious influence of the French Colonialists on the people of Hanoi has been a more negative one in relation to the experience of tourists in the city. For some local people there is a feeling that visitors from Europe owe something back to Vietnamese people for years of a having been taken advantage of during colonial times and unfortunately attempting to overcharge foreign visitors is a wide spread practice in Hanoi.
The way to deal with this is to negotiate fixed prices in advance, particularly for taxis. You might also consider booking hotels and transport online to take advantage of the fixed pricing system. Hanoi is a great place and well worth visiting but it can also be hard work buying things and travelling around because of the constant overcharging.
