It would not be an exaggeration to say that Hanoi is an incredibly hospitable place, despite being the second largest city in Viet Nam. This is why visitors are often told to prepare themselves for sudden greetings from strangers, even when simply walking through Hanoi’s streets. The city is also coloured by a unique blend of French and Sino-Vietnamese architecture, which is especially evident in its colonial Old Quarter. All this, in an environment of more than 3,000 square kilometres that buzzes with energy, history and–as expected of a busy area–traffic.
