Hanoi, the 1,000-year-old capital has it all:
the ancient history, a colonial legacy and a modern outlook.
There is no better place to untangle the paradox that is modern Vietnam.

The prime sites are: the Old Quarter with the Hoan Kiem Lake, the Ho Chi Min complex,
The Temple of Literature (Van Mieu) and the One Pillar Pagoda.
