Hanoi is the perfect starting point to explore the north of Vietnam. The nice thing about Hanoi is that you can easily experience this ancient capital on foot. Stroll through the old town and along the Hoan Kiem Lake and get to know the Vietnamese people. For us, that’s what Hanoi is all about!

Nevertheless, the Temple of Literature is also worth a visit. After discovering the daily life of hectic Hanoi, you step into an oasis of peace in this old university. It’s an interesting and well maintained temple complex with beautifully landscaped walled gardens and a rich history.

For us one night was enough to get a good impression of Hanoi, prepared to uncover the beautiful nature of North Vietnam!
