Hanoi Pocket Precincts A Pocket Guide to the City's Best Cultural Hangouts, Shops, Bars and Eateries


Hanoi is a picturesque mix of the old and the new, with the fading grandeur of its French colonial history juxtaposed against modern architecture. It’s a city where the peaceful music of early-morning tai chi is quickly drowned out by the rush of noisy mopeds; where old-style food vendors sit alongside high-end boutiques and shopping malls; and where a growing restaurant and bar scene mixes traditional Vietnamese cooking with influences from around the world. Hanoi Pocket Precincts is your curated guide to the city’s best cultural, shopping, eating and drinking experiences. As well as detailed reviews and maps for major attractions through to hidden gems, this guide includes a selection of 'field trips' encouraging you to venture outside the city to Halong Bay, Sapa and Bat Trang.
 
Slip this guide into your pocket and head off on an adventure, experiencing the coolest places in Hanoi and surrounds like a local.
