Hanoi has two areas which are very popular places with foreign visitors: the Old Quarter and area around the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. The Old Quarter is, as the name suggests, the oldest residential area in Hanoi. There are plenty of colonial era buildings with a French style design alongside much older Vietnamese buildings dating back hundreds of years, such as the Bach Ma Temple. The other famous feature of Hanoi’s Old Quarter is the Hoan Kiem Lake which contains small island with a temple accessible by a red wooden bridge.
There are even more things to see and do near to the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. At the top end of the street where the mausoleum is located is Hanoi’s Presidential Palace, which was originally built by the French in 1906 as the Governor’s Residence and later used by Ho Chi Minh as the headquarters of the Government of North Vietnam. At the bottom end of the same street is the One Pillar Pagoda which is one of Hanoi’s oldest buildings dating back to the early 11th Century. The One Pillar Pagoda rises up from the centre of a pond and has a very symbolic importance to Vietnamese people.
