Take a tour of City of Hanoi in Hanoi, Vietnam - part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
The capital of Vietnam is the world-famous city of Hanoi, one of the great cities of Southeast Asia.
One of this locale’s greatest attractions is the large and monolithic Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum.
This singular building was built to honor the leader who declared Vietnam's independence, and it is here where his body rests.
Another famous feature of Hanoi is its many pagodas, a distinctive part of Vietnamese culture.
Both as the capital and as Vietnam's second-largest city, Hanoi is a center of history and culture for the country.
Near Hanoi is the Perfume River, a stream that is sweetly scented by the flowers that fall into it in the spring.
The city is home to many museums and historical sites, and is one of the best places in the world to witness water puppetry.
