Hanoi is Vietnam's capital city, it's rich in history, with the streets of its rambling Old Quarter dating back to the 14th century. However, today's Hanoi is much more than the past, the city has now been invigorated with modern cafes, restaurants, and cool art galleries. The capital is also easily accessible thanks to its international airport (HAN), located 45km from the city centre.
