Imagine a city where the exotic chic of old Asia blends with the dynamic face of new Asia. Where the medieval and modern co-exist. A city with a blend of Parisian grace and Asian pace, an architectural museum piece evolving in harmony with its history, rather than bulldozing through like many of the region’s capitals. Welcome to Hanoi with 1.000 year history, “the city of lakes” with over 60 green and legendary lakes connecting 5 main rivers, “the city of museums” with 45 museums displaying aspects of old and modern Hanoi, “the city of Peace” awarded by UNESCO since 1999.
