Hanoi, the capital city of Vietnam, has a life-like no other. The earlier French occupation influenced the people, the lifestyle and the food significantly. The city has benefited enormously.
Anyone who has visited Hanoi will probably agree that it could be the most beautiful city in all of Asia.
Hanoi is famous for a lot of lakes, its rivers and the mountains of the surrounding area. It is well-known for its distinct tropical four seasons, typical of countries in SouthEast Asia. Spring is fresh, green and warm, the summer hot, autumn cool and the winters cold.
