Vietnam - Getting to know Hanoi
Hanoi takes Vietnam’s resolute, cheerful resilience and manifests it in a gorgeous jumble of worldly phenomena. Its streets are bustling. The traffic is, frankly, mad. Yet somehow - perhaps because Hanoi is full of trees - the overall impression is harmonious, evocative. Ancient temple complexes nestle, leafy and inviting, between brightly coloured shops and houses. The people buzz along between them, stirring up the dust. A‘wonderfully chaotic’ city, Hanoi undoubtedly ranks amongst the finest cities in Asia - if not the world.
