Hanoi is the capital of Vietnam and one of the most charming cities in the region. Well enhanced by the French colonial architecture, tree-line boulevards and beautifully preserved places of interests and ancient monuments, the city is well-loved for its tranquillity and understated natural beauty.
Located on the right bank of the Red River, Hanoi has gradually expanded to become a highly populous and rich residential centre. From 1010 until 1802, the city was the political centre of an independent Vietnam with a few brief interruptions. It was eclipsed by Hue during the Nguyen Dynasty as the capital of Vietnam, but served as the capital of French Indochina from 1887 to 1954. From 1954 to 1976, it was the capital of North Vietnam. Following the end of the war, Hanoi became the capital of Vietnam.
Hanoi has had many names throughout its history, such as Dai La (866) and Thang Long-Ascending dragon (1010), the latter still used poetically to this day. In 1831 the Nguyen Dynasty renamed it Hanoi (which means River interior).
