Useful Information

Hanoi is best observed on foot as there is much to see and do. Most famous for its dramatic landscape of lakes and rivers, Hanoi is the cultural capital of Vietnam, holding the nation’s heart and soul.

Religion: Buddhism
Languages: Vietnamese and English
Currency: Vietnamese Dong (1 USD = 23,000 VND)

Major Industries: Garment and textiles; agricultural products and food processing; chemical and mechanical manufacturing; electronics and telecommunications; and information technology

Weather: Generally a tropical climate, Hanoi’s weather is hot and wet most of the year. However, due to its high latitude, winter temperatures tend to drop drastically. Combining the year-round dampness and added wind chill, the city will feel quite cold from mid-December until early March. Summer months, May through early October, with little to no wind, are a hot-weather lover’s paradise.

Visa information: Most visitors to Vietnam need a visa to enter the country. Visas are exempt for citizens of the countries that have signed a bilateral or unilateral visa exemption agreement with Vietnam. Tourist visas may be valid from 15 days to three months.
