Hanoi

With its mesemerizing old quarter, handsome temples, gorgeous lakes, tributes to Ho Chi Minh, sobering remnants of a war-ravaged history and a collection of Asia’s most fascinating museums, Vietnam’s bustling capital is a heavyweight stop for anyone travelling the region. Add to that a burgeoning, wallet-friendly food and drink scene with warm, friendly locals and you’ll probably end up booking an extra few nights here. I stayed for five nights in April 2018 and didn’t want to leave! Have a look at my articles on:
