Make your escape away from the familiar with a trip to Vietnam. Ho Chi Minh City is a popular destination for holiday-makers who want to experience this Southeast Asian country, but your trip isn’t complete without a journey to the north to visit the capital, Hanoi. Loaded with history and culture, you’ll find lots to amaze here. Here at Wotif, we’ll get you affordable rooms in Ho Chi Minh City hotels and in Hanoi.
Things to Do in Hanoi
Definitely get out to eat. Hanoi is home to the beloved bun cha, a grilled pork and noodle dish. You’ll find great local food at roadside stalls and fine dining restaurants in Hanoi hotels. Be sure to stop and see the curious One Pillar Pagoda while visiting the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. Watch boats from the shore of Hoan Kiem Lake. Stroll across the grounds of the Temple of Literature or admire the giant turtle displays at Ngoc Son Temple. Here, history, religion and culture are interwoven in a vibrant backdrop for your holidays.
Still going after the sun dips below the horizon? No worries. Get a taste of Hanoi after dark at the Night Market. Buy up local jewellery, watch street performers and feast on pastries. Remember, calories don’t count after the sun goes down.
Getting in & Around Hanoi
If you start out your adventure on Ho Chi Minh City holidays, there are several options for travelling north to Hanoi. Trek north via train or bus, or fly into Noi Bai International airport. From there, catch a taxi to hotels in Hanoi located central to the city. Public buses and shuttle buses are also available, usually with set fares. Navigating Hanoi traffic is an adventure all its own, but you’ll still be able to get around easily by taxi, cyclo or motorbike. You’ll even find Uber drivers here!
With our convenient online booking system, open 24/7, we make it easy for you to plan your next getaway and find Hanoi accommodation. See more of the world--and do it cheaper--with Wotif!
