The capital of Vietnam, Hanoi is the country's second largest city. Home to a host of attractions, it is the perfect choice for a once-in-a-lifetime getaway. While there, make sure to stay in one of our Hanoi hotels for a little taste of home. With comfortable rooms and excellent facilities, a night at an IHG hotel will leave you refreshed and ready to explore the delights of this beautiful and unique city.
Orient yourself to the city and the country with a visit to the National Museum of Vietnamese History, where you’ll learn all about the country’s tempestuous past and diverse heritage. Or, for an introduction to the country’s high culture, head to the Vietnam National Museum of Fine Arts, and the Vietnam Museum of Ethnology, where you can marvel at a number of spectacular pieces. You’ll also want to devote at least half a day to admiring the city's spectacular French Colonial architecture. From the Grand Opera House to the Presidential Palace, the Saint Joseph Cathedral to the Hotel Metropole, you will be amazed at their intricate opulence. Afterwards, don't forget to check out the night market in the heart of the Old Quarter, where you're bound to find more gifts to take home than you can fit in your suitcase.
While you're in Vietnam, be sure to sample some of the world famous cuisine. Try something new and exotic from a street food stall, and see if you dare taste a dish containing snake or insects. If this proves too much, relax on one of Hanoi's scenic lakes, from Hoan Kiem to Bay Mau, and learn all about the local legends.
After a day spent appreciating the exciting sights and sounds of the city, head back to one of our hotels in Hanoi--the perfect place to get away from the hubbub of wonderful Vietnam.
