Geography
Hanoi is located in the Red River Delta, in the center of North Vietnam. It is encompassed by Thai Nguyen to the north, Vinh Phuc and Ha Tay provinces to the west and south, Bac Giang, Bac Ninh and Hung Yen provinces to the east and south-east.


Hanoi means "the hinterland between the rivers" (Ha: river, Noi: interior). Hanoi's territory is washed by the Red River (the portion of the Red River embracing Hanoi is approximately 40km long) and its tributaries, but there are some other rivers flowing through the capital, including Duong, Cau, Ca Lo, Day, Nhue, Tich, To Lich and Kim Nguu.


Climate: Hanoi is situated in a tropical monsoon zone with two main seasons. During the dry season, which lasts from October to April, it is cold and there is very little rainfall, except from January to March, when the weather is still cold but there is some light rain. The wet season, from May to September, is hot with heavy rains and storms. The average annual temperature is 23.20C (73.70F) and the average annual rainfall is 1,800mm. The average temperature in winter is 17.20C (62.90F), but can go down to 80C (46.40F). The average temperature in summer is 29.20C (84.60F), but can reach up to 390C (102.20F).


History
Hanoi is a sacred land of Vietnam. In the 3rd century BC, Co Loa (actually belonging to Dong Anh District) was chosen as the capital of the Au Lac Nation of Thuc An Duong Vuong (the King Thuc). Hanoi later became the core of the resistance movements against the Northern invasions. Located in the middle of the Red River Delta, the town has gradually expanded to become a very populations and rich residential center. At different periods, Hanoi had been selected as the chief city of Vietnam under the Northern domination.In the autumn of Canh Tuat lunar years (1010), Ly Thai To, the founder of the Ly Dynasty, decided to transfer the capital from Hoa Lu to Dai La, and so he rebaptized it Thang Long (Soaring Dragon). The year 1010 then became an historical date for Hanoi and for the whole country in general. For about a thousand years, the capital was called Thang Long, then changing to Dong Do, Dong Kinh, and finally to Hanoi, in 1831. This sacred piece of land thereafter continued to be the theatre of many fateful events.

Tourism
Throughout the thousand years of its eventful history, marked by destruction, wars and natural calamities, Hanoi still preserves many ancient architectural works including the Old Quarter and over 600 pagodas and temples. Famous sites include the One Pillar Pagoda (built in 1049), the Temple of Literature (built in 1070), Hanoi Citadel, Hanoi Opera House, President Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum...
Hanoi also characteristically contains 18 beautiful lakes such as Hoan Kiem Lake, West Lake, and Truc Bach Lake..., which are the lungs of the city, with their surrounding gardens and trees providing a vital source of energy.
Many traditional handicrafts are also practiced in Hanoi including bronze molding, silver carving, lacquer, and embroidery. Hanoi has many famous traditional professional handicraft villages such as Bat Trang pottery village, Ngu Xa bronze casting village, Yen Thai glossy silk...

Dear Johny
we are back in Hanoi and we wanted to thank you so much for the good service!
It was very nice that someone showed us the way to our cabin on the way to Lao cai and that someone was waiting for us this early morning to bring us to our hotel. The trip with the train was also good.
We will certainly recommend you to all of our friends and family if they want to travel in Vietnam.
Best regards,
Nienke Adema
I would recommend your service 100% to any of my friends, family or colleagues.

I would recommend your service 100% to any of my friends, family or colleagues.
We have arrived home safely after a wonderful trip to Vietnam and Hong Kong
 We loved your country and all the people are so wonderful and friendly.
 Your service made our trip so easy. All the bookings were perfect, the drivers were always early to pick us up and you always responded so quickly to my phone calls and emails (even though you were in the middle of wedding celebrations).
 I would recommend your service 100% to any of my friends, family or colleagues.
 I felt great relief to know that I had someone local to call on while I was in Vietnam.
 I hope all went well with your wedding celebrations with your husband’s family and I hope to use your service again sometime in the future.
 I also recommended you to a family I met while staying at the Victoria Hotel in Hoi An. The husband’s name was Kevin and they were originally from England but now live in Sydney. They had a little girl called Bella and wanted to go to Ha Long Bay and also Sapa. Did they call you?
 
 Best wishes to you and the team at Vietnam tours.
 Kind regards, Suzanne
I just wanted to thank you again for all the lovely, courteous, efficient help you gave us when we visited Vietnam. My only regret is not staying in Hue as there was so much to do there. Hoi An was lovely but 5 nights there too much!

Hi Ms Annie
 I just wanted to thank you again for all the lovely, courteous, efficient help you gave us when we visited Vietnam. My only regret is not staying in Hue as there was so much to do there. Hoi An was lovely but 5 nights there too much! Sue Richardson, my friend, also told me last night on the phone how helpful you were to her when she needed some help.
 I have given your email address to my sister, Maryrose Mooney, and I hope she makes contact.
 I told her to put together her dates and requests ie flights/hotels/transfers/trains and send to you for a quote.
 Time Hotel was lovely and very central. I have told my sister to ask for windows in her hotel rooms and Room 402 was a lovely room.
 I hope she listens to my suggestions/ideas and makes contact
 
 Kind regards
