Hanoi is the capital of Vietnam, and is the second largest city in the country after Ho Chi Minh City. It has a population of around 8 million after merging with Ha Tay province. The city offers a fascinating blend of East and West. Tangible and visible Chinese influence is still there in styles, traditions, pagodas and historical facts. French influence is very visible with buildings and tree lined roads. French architecture is being replicated to new satellite residential areas all over Hanoi.

Tourists to Hanoi will often be impressive with the collection of 82 stone steles upon large stone tortoises in the Temple of Literature. They were created between 1484 and 1780 and are engraved with the names, places of birth and achievements of the 1,306 doctor laureates who received their degrees during this time. A peaceful space, green ancient trees and solemnity cover the whole Temple which makes travelers feel they were lost in a land of Confucius. First time family travelers to Hanoi must see the Temple of Literature to understand the culture and traditions of Vietnam.

The Thang Long Water Puppet Theater is a familiar address for not only domestic tourists but also foreign ones, who love to enjoy water puppet shows and explore the beauty of this unique Vietnam traditional art. A Vietnam holiday with children should not miss this wonderful and interesting performance.

Cited as one of the world's great food capitals, Hanoi city is the birthplace of many quintessential and famous dishes in both Vietnam and in the world. Hanoi city will be a street-eater's paradise with a plethora of options for many tourists who enjoy eating like a local. In fact, the best food in Hanoi is found on the sidewalk of the Old Quarter, featuring with fish sauce, lemongrass, chilies, and cilantro and other fresh herbs.
