There’s a lot to see in Hanoi — especially around Hoan Kiem Lake, one of the city’s busiest centers for visitors and locals alike. You can walk on a footbridge to Ngoc Son Temple on a small island near the shore, which contains the preserved remains of one of the lake’s last legendary turtles. Travelers should consider exploring the countryside just outside of the city, in the expanse of rice paddies where rural culture preserves handicraft traditions like pottery and woodblock printing. Cruises of Halong Bay are incredibly popular, and often come with stops to explore massive caves and kayak around the bay’s blue lagoons.
Accommodations here radiate cleanliness, with fresh linens and nicely buffed wooden floors. They all have modern amenities, including TVs and Wi-Fi. Rooms also have contemporary, Vietnamese-inspired aesthetics. Private bathrooms have basic amenities and attractive fixtures. If you have a little extra time to spend unwinding at the hotel, check out their on-site spa.
Visit the attractive rooftop deck for a sip from the bar and an impressive view of the city. The restaurant offers a cuisine that highlights the flavors of Vietnam’s history, combining French influences with traditional Vietnamese influences. The daily breakfast buffet offers a good variety of options. When you’re ready to do some culinary exploration, there is a good variety of shops, restaurants, and shops in Hanoi’s famous Old Quarter.
