The contrast between the hustle and bustle of the chaotic capital of Vietnam and the peace of sailing on the calm waters of Halong Bay is an experience as unique as it is unforgettable.

The hustle and bustle is so chaotic, it’s wonderful

If you are thinking of visiting Hanoi, you should know that this vibrant capital city in Southeast Asia has two very different areas. One of them is around Lake Ho Tay, containing the most historic and institutional buildings, such as the Presidential Palace or the Ho Chi Min Mausoleum. The other is the old quarter and its surrounding area, where all the social life of the city takes place. If you like history, you have to learn more about the history of the city in the War Museum. And if you like eating, this is one of the cities with the best cuisine in the world!

The official currency is the dong. We recommend you carry cash because street stalls and markets do not usually accept credit cards.
The northern dialect of Vietnamese is the most widely spoken language in the city. Thanks to tourism, English is also popular.
Internet access is usually weak and a bit slow. The quality is good in hotels that have Wi-Fi.
The weather is warm and rainy. The temperature throughout the year varies between 14⁰C and 34⁰C, and is rarely any hotter or colder.
