The exquisite turn-of-the-century French and Sino-Vietnamese architecture of Hanoi is an attraction in itself. Today, many of these structures have earned their place among the city's historic landmarks and have become an integral part of the cityscape.
Hanoi, one of the most beautiful of the colonial Indochinese cities is often the start or end point of a trip to Vietnam, and what a great welcome or farewell it is. Simply oozing charm, Hanoi has gone through wholesale changes in the last decade since Vietnam swung open its doors to tourism, yet it remains an amazing city to experience.
