Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, exudes a totally different atmosphere than the bustling Ho Chi Minh City. Its wide, tree-lined streets, beautiful lakes and Old French Quarter give Hanoi a decidedly agreeable character. Very densely populated, Hanoi buzzes with activity from as early as 5 AM. For early risers the sight of Vietnamese exercising around the mystical Hoan Kiem Lake is quite unforgettable.
The queues of Vietnamese who line up to catch a glimpse of the embalmed body of Uncle Ho is a stirring spectacle in itself. Roaming through the streets and alleys of the Old French Quarter is an experience of constant and delightful discovery
