With a blend of Chinese and French influences, Hanoi is one of the most beautiful colonial Indochinese cities. It is a great place to holiday, where you can either immerse yourself in the culture and relax, or join in the adventure. From shopping to dining along bustling streets to experiencing cultural diversity, there is a multitude of things to see and do in this extremely affordable city.

Here are Jetstar’s top five things to see and do in Hanoi: 

1. Explore the city’s hectic and historic streets while enjoying its charms

Take a stroll around Hoan Kiem Lake, situated right in the heart of Hanoi, and be rewarded with the enchanting sight of Tortoise Tower or watch the locals practice tai chi in the morning. See the city’s main attractions on a leisurely walk or ride a cyclo and check out the surreal One Pillar Pagoda. Lose yourself in the tranquil setting of The Temple of Literature and lastly venture through The Old Quarter to explore the maze of back streets taking in the colorful stalls and street vendors.

2. Enjoy the abundance of shopping

You’re sure to find great bargains in the narrow streets of The Old Quarter. Lacquer-ware, art, embroidery and silk are just some of the unique wares on offer. Satisfy all your other shopping needs and splurge on vintage finds for your loved ones at Dong Xuan Market; a treasure trove of perfect souvenirs.

3. Delight in the local flavours

Vietnam is famous for its excellent cuisine and for good reason. Food can be found just about anywhere in Hanoi. When visiting Hanoi you must try ‘Pho’, a noodle soup, Vietnam’s signature dish served with fresh herbs Watch the busy street life of Hanoi from a serene spot as you sip a cup of freshly brewed Vietnamese coffee or Hanoi’s specialty Bia Hoi; a preservative-free light beer.

4. Attend a traditional water puppet show

For a unique and memorable Vietnamese experience, catch a performance at the Thang Long Water Puppet Theatre. It is a charming celebration of Vietnamese folklore told with wooden puppets bursting with life, dancing and splashing on the water, with traditional Vietnamese orchestra providing the background music. It is a must see for children and adults.

5. Take a side trip and enjoy the breath taking beauty of Halong Bay or Sapa

If you have had a few days in Hanoi and are looking for a bit more variety, venture out to discover the breathtaking sites of Vietnam. Hop on a boat and admire heritage listed Halong Bay with towering limestone peaks scattered across the emerald Gulf of Tonkin, one of Vietnam’s most magical sights. For a remote cultural encounter and mountain experience, check out Sapa and see indigenous hill tribes living amidst stunning mountain scenery and the cascading rice terraces.
