The Vietnam War helped to unfairly saddle Hanoi with a reputation as a dour outpost for Communist apparatchiks. It may not be as chaotic as Saigon, but Hanoi ranks among the world’s most attractive and interesting cities. The city’s placid air gives it a gracious, almost regal flavor, underscored by a rich history that traces back more than a thousand years — a fascinating heritage on display in well-preserved centuries-old architecture. Hanoi is Vietnam’s cultural center, and puppetry, music, and dance performances are well worth your time. Things to Do The quintessential Hanoi neighborhood and the oldest area in town, the Old Quarter is a maze of streets dating back to the 13th century. The Old Quarter’s Communal Houses were set up by guilds as small temples to honor a local god — the Bach Ma, or White Horse, who represents the city itself. Another sightseeing highlight is the Temple of Literature — a sanctuary of Confucianism and Vietnam’s seat of learning for almost a thousand years. Nightlife and Entertainment Hanoi is the best place to experience traditional Vietnamese arts such as opera, theater, and water puppetry, shows that feature traditional music and depict Vietnamese folklores and myths. The city also has a variety of pleasant little watering holes. For a vivid taste of local street life, Hanoi style, pull up a little plastic squat stool on a street corner or in one of the many cozy, open-air bars serving the local brew bia-hoi.
