Discover Hanoi’s ancient pagodas, green spaces, irresistible street food and compelling museums whilst calling one of these apartments home.

Formerly known as Thang Long and Dong Kinh, Vietnam’s second largest city was named Hanoi – meaning the city in a bend in the river – in 1831. It now attracts over 28 million tourists each year to its serene lakes, upmarket French Quarter and buzzing Old Quarter, where hundreds of mopeds zip past bewildered tourists.
