Hanoi is the capital of Vietnam. It covers an area of 3,328.9 square kilometres (1,285 sq mi). With an estimated population of 8.1 million as of 2019, it is the second largest city in Vietnam. The metropolitan area, encompassing nine additional neighboring provinces, has an estimated population of 20 millions. Located in the northwest of the Red River Delta, Hanoi is the commercial, cultural, and educational centre of Northern Vietnam.
Originally a small settlement along the banks of the Red River, the city was founded as Thang Long, the capital of Imperial Vietnam, in 1010 by monarch Ly Thai To. Thang Long would remain the most important political and cultural centre of Vietnam until 1802, when the Nguyen dynasty, the last imperial dynasty of Vietnam, moved the capital to Hue. Thang Long renamed to its current name Hanoi in 1831. In 1873, Hanoi was conquered by the French, and from 1883 to 1945, the city was the capital of French Indochina. The French colonisation left a lasting impact on the city’s architecture that is visible today, as showcased through the juxtaposition of traditional Vietnamese architecture and French-styled avenues and edifices in the city center.
According to Mastercard’s 2019 report, Hanoi is Vietnam’s most visited city (15th in Asia Pacific), with 4.8 million overnight international visitors in 2018. Hanoi is sometimes dubbed the “Paris of the East” for its French influences. With its tree-fringed boulevards, more than two dozen lakes and thousands of French colonial-era buildings, Hanoi is a popular tourist destination.
The tourist destinations in Hanoi are generally grouped into two main areas: the Old Quarter and the French Quarter(s). The “Old Quarter” is in the northern half of Hoan Kiem District with small street blocks and alleys, and a traditional Vietnamese atmosphere. Many streets in the Old Quarter have names signifying the goods (“hàng”) the local merchants were or are specialized in. For example, “Hàng Bạc” (silver stores) still have many stores specializing in trading silver and jewelries.
Two areas are generally called the “French Quarters”: the governmental area in Ba Dinh District and the south of Hoan Kiem District. Both areas have distinctive French Colonial style villas and broad tree-lined avenues. The political center of Vietnam, Ba Dinh has a high concentration of Vietnamese government headquarters, including the Presidential Palace, the National Assembly and several ministries and embassies, most of which used administrative buildings of colonial French Indochina. The One Pillar Pagoda, the Lycée du Protectorat and the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum are also in Ba Dinh. South of Hoan Kiem’s “French Quarter” has several French-Colonial landmarks, including the Hanoi Opera House, the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi hotel, the National Museum of Vietnamese History (formerly the École française d’Extrême-Orient), and the St. Joseph’s Cathedral. Most of the French-Colonial buildings in Hoan Kiem are now used as foreign embassies.
