Hanoi is the capital and second largest city of Vietnam. It was founded in 1010. Hanoi was the capital of French Indochina in 1902–1939 and again in 1945-1954. It was also the capital of North Vietnam from 1954-1975.
Like many cities in East Asia, Hanoi is a melange of a 3,000 year old culture with a bustling modern city. Ancient art, architecture, and religious works can be seen throughout the city alongside cafés, internet hubs, and sports complexes.
