Vietnam is Southeast Asia's long, thin country bordered by China to the north, Laos and Cambodia to the west and the South China Sea to the east. Hanoi, its capital city, is a captivating combination of East and West imprinted with a French flair.
Hanoi lends itself to exploration. One of Hanoi's landmarks is the Temple of Literature which was built in 1070 and dedicated to Confucius, the Chinese teacher. The philosophy of Confucius emphasized personal and governmental morality, correctness of social relationships, justice and sincerity. The vast complex, which eventually became the country's first university, is a treasure trove of Vietnamese architecture featuring five manicured courtyards, peaceful lotus-filled pools and red-roofed temples all surrounded by the Lake of Literature.
Hanoi's oldest district, known as The Old Quarter, is famous for winding streets filled with small shops dedicated to specific trades such as silk, tombstones, antiques, scooter repairs, souvenirs and food. In the heart of the district, the city's nocturnal markets open for business on the weekends. A variety of clothing, souvenirs, fruit and flowers can be found in the middle of night.
Hanoi has developed into a sophisticated metropolis with sensational cuisine while still maintaining a strong sense of identity and history. Consider combining your trip to Vietnam with other exciting destinations such as Cambodia, Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand.
