Are you finding more top things to do in Hanoi: Tours, activities, attractions and other things? Let’s check it out at here.

The world of the marvelous stays unrevealed. Until you travel.


  1. Hanoi is fast paced; Full of life and bright lights. Stepping out into the streets of this city as a foreigner is a bit shocking. 3 million scooters weaving in and out of each other like ants in a non-traditional traffic dance. The majority of the buildings here are slender and multi level, featuring elevated views, and offering an escape from the commotion.

    • Definitely! Nowhere in the world, but Vietnam, can we get such an “awesome” road-crossing experience. And these buildings are ideal to take an escape but still a view for watching the dance of millions of scooters in evening hours.
