HANOI the capital of Vietnam
Full of antique brick houses, the narrow streets of the Old Quarter constitute the charm of Hanoi. The 36 streets are constantly in activity: merchants and artisans sell their products, and shops are at almost every corner. They hold the name of traded goods of Hanoi such as Hang Bac for Silver Product or Hang Ma for Paper Product... Surnamed the city below the river, Hanoi conserved its influences from the Chinese and French civilizations. Laying down on the occidental river bank of Red River, this bustling and charming city has a cultural richness. Visit the place where Vietnam’s Independence was once announced and cross the doors of the first university of Vietnam. Get lost in the 36 streets of the Old Quarter, grap a beer in Bia Hoi area and learn the secret of fabrication of the renowned handicrafts in the ceramic or silk village.
