MAP OF HANOI
City Center

"Yesterday I took the walk through the old quarter of Hanoi with Anne which is in my National Geographic travel guide. This is a 1.6 km route, passing 7 cultural sites. The starting point of the hike was north of Hoan Kiem Lake. Then we entered a small street, Hang Quat. According to the book, there had to be a guild temple here. We looked around in the street but could not really find the temple.
After looking at the map several times, we saw that it had a house number. There was a very small door that you could enter. Then we came to another door, which was ajar. Behind the door was a huge collection of ceramics. Unfortunately we were not allowed to enter. I think they were doing renovations because it smelled a lot like glue and paint."


Map of Hanoi City Center

The capital city of Hanoi is located on the right bank of the Red River. Hanoi is located 1,760 km (1,090 miles) north of Ho Chi Minh City (former Saigon).
October 2010 was officially 1000 years ago since the city was founded. On this occasion, Hanoi was named one of the world's top "Top Destinations" by Frommer's travel guide.
As the capital of Vietnam for nearly a thousand years, Hanoi is considered one of the most important cultural centers of Vietnam, where most Vietnamese dynasties have left their mark. While some relics have not survived the wars and time, the city still has many interesting cultural and historical monuments for visitors and residents alike. Even when the country's capital moved to Hue in 1802 under the Nguyen Dynasty, the city of Hanoi continued to thrive, especially after the French took control in 1888 and shaped the city's architecture to their liking, bringing the rich stylistic heritage of the city gained an important aesthetic.
The city is home to more cultural sites than any other city in Vietnam, and has more than 1,000 years of history, well preserved over the past hundred years.

 


It's narrow with the train through Hanoi

From a travelogue:

"Hanoi's old town is a colorful hodgepodge of colonial houses, narrow alleys, scooters and street vendors. This old-fashioned piece of Hanoi is more than 1,000 years old and used to be a lively place where merchants and traders gathered to do business.
It is the most atmospheric part of the city, and cozy guesthouses hide behind the colorful facades where you can stay for a small price.
Definitely take half a day to see this pleasant district. Take in random side streets, browse the souvenirs and order a delicious Vietnamese meal from one of the street stalls."
