Hanoi-City of thousand years
Hanoi is a city of contrasts: New high towers are built above crumbling buildings in hundreds of years old, or mass traffic speeds past rows of gracious, aging tamarind trees. In Hanoi, so many things have changed in fast passed, but others have stayed the same. Visitors to the city will find patches of tranquility among the carefully orchestrated chaos. Often it's as easy as crossing the street to the nearby park or lake. Hanoi has reflected their lifestyle behind the nature. The Old Quarter is the perfect example of Hanoi's dual nature. Founded as a small village some thousand years ago, Thang Long as it was, and is known, has stood the trials of time to become the capital of the country. Once every street of the city's center sold only one thing such as silver or maybe beef, however, things for selling are different these days. For example, one could wander in Hang Bac when the person see rows of jewelry shops while there are also the noodle stands and knick-knack stores. Hanoi is a city of contrasts, but beyond that, it's a city with a unique beauty and character.
TRADITIONAL ARTS

CUISINE
Hanoi Cuisine is rushing to the forefront of the city's renaissance and resurgence.
Voted as one of the world's top five spots for dining, thanks to its unique street dishes, Hanoi's cup, or plate in this case, virtually runneth over gastronomic options. Vietnamese and French give way to Italian, Belgian, Japanese, Korean, Thai and Indian dishes.
