Hanoi holidays

Historic architecture, buzzing markets and the gateway to spectacular Halong Bay — Hanoi holidays are a whirlwind journey like no other

On the banks of Asia’s Red River you’ll find Hanoi, Vietnam’s capital and a must-visit destination. The city is known for its eclectic architecture, from French colonial buildings and well-preserved temples to towering skyscrapers, and a lively yet sophisticated vibe. Hop in a tuk-tuk and whizz around the city on a whistle-stop tour; get lost in a sea of colour, souvenirs and aromatic street food at one of the many markets; or just stretch your legs and watch the world go by on a wander around meandering Old Quarter streets. Get in touch with us and start planning your dream Hanoi holiday.
