Hanoi

Think it's all tin hats and Jane Fonda? Think again. Though it’s not the quiet, tranquil capital of yore, this enchanting historic gem is bursting with French colonial architecture, Confucian values, Buddhist temples, socialist art, romantic atmosphere, great food (besides Fido) and fabulous shopping. Just watch those motorbikes!
