Hanoi served as the capital of French Indochina from 1902 to 1954. Then, when North and South Vietnam were separated, Hanoi was the capital of North Vietnam. Located in northern Vietnam, there are stronger Chinese influences than its southern counterpart. This is not surprising, though, as Hanoi had been ruled by the Chinese for over 1000 years. Rapid expansion has seen the rise of skyscrapers, but the old quarter still exists, even if in street names only. Thang Long – Hanoi is the city of multi-cultural convergence, crystallizing the traditional values of the nation with a long history, complete with timeless works of architecture and famous monuments. It’s one of the most attractive domestic and international tourist destinations in Vietnam because of its ancient, quiet, elegant and hidden beauty. Coming to Hanoi, visitors can not only admire the ancient beauty of Hanoi, but also have the opportunity to enjoy the unique culinary culture that is unlike any other in the world.
