Be the newcomer to the top 25, Hanoi has everything the history buff needs. Boasting more than 1,000 years of history, it has a lot of wonderful historic monuments, cultural sites, and museums. Located between rivers in northern Vietnam and featuring a warm and humid subtropical climate with plentiful precipitation, Hanoi hosts many beautiful lakes and is called “city of lakes” sometimes. One of the most famous lakes, Hoan Kiem Lake, is the cultural center of Hanoi. Near the lake is the Old Quarter, where original street layout and architecture of old Hanoi can be seen. Moreover, rich food traditions and abundant famous dishes make the city more attractive.
