Hanoi – ideal destination for backpacking adventure

Hello, a UK weekly magazine, has named Hanoi among seven best backpacking destinations in Asia. Ideal for travellers on a tight budget, Vietnam's capital city is one of the cheapest destinations for backpackers.

“Not only is accommodation and food remarkably affordable, but you’ll be spoiled for choice of things to see and do in the city, which has a mix of Southeast Asian, Chinese and French influences,” the magazine wrote.

Apart from the many popular places like Sword Lake, Hai Ba Trung Temple and Hoa Lo Prison Museum, the magazine highlights a special attraction – bia hoi. It notes that “backpackers often spend their evenings gathered at bia hoi bars across Hanoi, where you’ll find the cheapest beer in the world at around 25p a glass.”

Hanoi City is located in the North of Vietnam. It has winter and it starts from December and ends in the middle of February. Temperature would be between 10 – 20 degrees Celsius, so prepare some warm jackets and hoodies. What’s the good thing about it? Less tourists. Whilst from March to May, it could be a little bit warmer, though not necessarily sizzling summer. Skies will be often clear but rainy season will start, so prepare your umbrellas and rain coats.

Then June to August is the hottest time of the year. Brace yourself as after you stepped out of your hostel, you’ll be sweating again. Temperature could reach until 40 degrees Celsius and the average is 30 degrees. This season is also the rainy ones, expects some regular downpours and take a raincoat with you. September to November could be same as March.

Any time, Hanoi tourism will always meet the full experience for you. Further from Hanoi you can easily combine other destinations in northern Vietnam such as Sapa, Halong bay or Ninh Binh in Vietnam holiday packages tours. From big cities brimming with foodie fun, to landscapes so surreal they will blow your mind, Northern Vietnam sure won’t disappoint.
