Hanoi is the capital of Vietnam and the country's second largest city by
population. It is situated along the Red River and lies about a thousand
miles away from the city’s most important city, Ho Chi Minh City. Hanoi has
served as the epicentre of politics and administration from 11th
to 19th century, before it was subdued for a period of 5 years
by Imperial Japanese Army during the Second World War. Once past that
misadventure, Hanoi has risen through the ranks rapidly and celebrated its
1000 years of existence in 2010. You should visit this southeast Asian
megacity for its stellar mix of art, architecture and culture. For those
interested in street foods, Hanoi tops its prolific street food culture
