In the cities, ancient pagodas squat just around the corner from sleek rooftop bars; and in the countryside, life still follows the rhythms of the rivers and the rice harvest. This contrast between old and new Vietnam is a big part of its appeal.

With its diverse natural beauty, the capital of Hanoi is your gateway to the treasures of the North.
