Hanoi Travel Tips

Achieve your travel goals in Hanoi. Maximize your itinerary, budget & enjoy the most out of your trip to Hanoi with Detourista.

There is always something interesting to discover at every street corner in Hanoi, especially in the old quarter of the city.

It’s one of the best cities in Southeast Asia to explore on foot.

In addition to a river that runs through the city center, Hanoi also has scenic lakes that are best viewed from rooftop restaurants or bars with a traditional Vietnamese coffee or chilled beer on hand.

Hanoi is a destination worth visiting on its own and not just a flight hub in Northern Vietnam.
