Or journey to the capital city of Hanoi, with its French colonial architecture, a Temple of Literature dedicated to Confucius, a simple old cottage that belonged to Ho Chi Minh, and the lively and fascinating old quarter of 36 Streets, with each lane named after the wares that were traditionally sold there.
