Volunteer Vietnam Hanoi is a lovely city and capital of Vietnam. Located in the heart of the northern Red River Delta, Hanoi is a city of lakes, tree lined streets, and green parks that has a French colonial feel. Founded over 1000 years ago, Hanoi became the center of government for the Indochina Union under French rule in 1888, and later the official capital of independent Vietnam.

Hanoi retains it charming sense of the old world, with preserved streets of the Old Quarter, temples, monuments and pagodas that reflect the significant character of Vietnam. It is a city that appears frozen in a long-gone era. There are relatively few cars – many people travel by bicycle or moped. Today, compared to other cities in the south of Vietnam, Hanoi is far slower, less developed and a charming city to visit. Travelers can find hotels, internet cafes, and western style food in this once inaccessible city.

Hanoi can be visited year round:  summer (May-Sept) can be very hot and sticky, autumn (Sept-Nov) is less humid and cool, and spring (Feb-April) sees nice weather and some rain.

Some airlines that service Noi Bai international airport are Vietnam Airlines, Thai Air, Cathay Pacific and  Korean Air to name a few.
