Hanoi is very much its own city which means plenty of experiences that are quintessential to Vietnam’s capital. Sit down for a cup of strong Vietnamese coffee in Hanoi's Old Quarter. Hitch a ride on the back of a cyclo or a motorbike taxi. Take your taste buds on a street-food tour, and drink with locals at a bia hoi. Then, if you dare, get your fortune told in an alleyway. Your senses will be filled with the colors, smells, sounds, and tastes of Hanoi.
