Its name “Ha noi” means “city of lakes” but it has a cooler name “Thang Long”, meaning “Ascending Dragon”.
With cultures and a rich history stretching back millenniums ago, Hanoi gives you the feel of a historical and ancient place that has not lost its essence and traditions. Hanoi mixes the liveliness and spirit of modernization with the beauty, durability and quality of history. Hanoi lives up to the meaning of its name, nowhere can you find as many lakes as you will find in Hanoi, this gives the whole environment a fresh and serene atmosphere.
