Hanoi is Vietnam`s political and cultural capital. The city is attractive and retains an ambience in architecture and layout that recalls the earlier French era. West from the centre of town is the old French quarter with many colonial style villas on quiet tree-lined streets. Hanoi has many superb and interesting museums and art galleries, and the area around Dong Xuang Market is colourful and vibrant. To the east of the city lies one of the wonders of the world, Halong Bay, with its thousands of limestone islands and its natural scenic beauty.
