Hanoi is Vietnam's capital and the country's second largest city after Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). Located 1,760 km (1,094 miles) north of Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi is quieter compared to its southern rival but still vibrant and fascinating to any visitor. Furthermore, the influence of Chinese and French culture is very strong in Hanoi from the city's long history of foreign occupation. More at Guide to Hanoi.
