Hanoi is the alluring capital of Vietnam, where French colonial aesthetics commingle with dizzying signs of development in one of Asia’s fastest growing economies. The center of Hanoi is the mythical Hoan Kiem, the Lake of the Restored Sword, which is buttressed by the Old Quarter, where tourists can be found wandering among street stalls and colonial buildings. We’ll follow six Instagrammers, based in Hanoi, as they showcase the best that their city has to offer, from famous landmarks to hidden gems, historical sites to daily life.
