The constant, frenzied rumbling of scooters on its narrow streets might suggest otherwise, but in recent years, Hanoi has grown into one of Southeast Asia’s most agreeably serene cities. Tree-lined lotus ponds bisect a medley of ancient temples, grand colonial edifices and pastel shop-houses. There’s great food to be found on every corner, lively chatter in every bar and a cosmopolitan arts scene that’s only getting better. It’s a city worth cherishing, a place to take your time and acquaint yourself properly. And there’s no better time to do so than right now.
