As scooters swirl around the misty lakes and their temples, Hanoi exudes a charm not found anywhere else in Asia. Its Old Quarter is a mass of BBQ stands, rickety guild houses touting lightbulbs and baskets and Buddhist trinkets, and hidden coffee shops that broil Vietnamese egg brews on an open flame. Beyond that lurk formidable Brutalist memorials to Ho Chi Minh himself, along with sprawling museums that help to chronicle the tumultuous past of Indochina in the 20th century. But cheap flights to Hanoi from Australia aren't just about this city. Grab your ticket deal and you could also hit the UNESCO wonders of Ha Long Bay, Vietnam's misty mountains in Sapa, or the charming beach town of Hoi An with ease.
Steeped in myth and topped by temples, Hoan Kiem Lake is considered the spiritual heart of Hanoi.
Looking unlike the surrounding temples and parks, the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is a Soviet-style monument that marks the resting place of Vietnam's revolutionary leader.
Merchant guilds trade everything from copper pipe to carburetors in the maze of the Hanoi Old Quarter. It's also got backpacker nightlife and bars.
