It is said that Vietnam is an ideal destination for tourists, especially Hanoi, the capital city. Hanoi is well known not only because of its peace, beautiful landscapes, friendly people but also the interesting things to do at night.

1. Take a trip along streets
One of the most interesting things to do in Hanoi at night is to take a trip along the beautiful streets. In daylight, Hanoi is a crowded and bustling city, but at night it shows a completely contrast picture. The noisy of the street with many vehicles and sounds is replaced by the quiet and by the sparkle of the street lights. Tourists who like the quiet and privacy as well as want to discover the different aspect of Hanoi life should go along the streets in The Old Quarter, around Hoan Kiem Lake and Dien Bien Phu street, and especially LongBien Bridge, a witness of Vietnam’s history.

4.Eating at night
After taking a trip and feeling a little tired, there seem to have no other more interesting thing to do in Hanoi than sit in a diner and enjoy the taste of delicious dishes. It’s not sure that when exactly eating at night has become a pleasure of people in Hanoi. Previously, the restaurants and diners generally serve the workers who work the night shift or who miss the train to feed to reduce the hunger. However, Hanoi people now eat at night not merely to satisfy the hunger, it becomes a cultural beauty, an irresistible pleasure.

It is really difficult to list all the restaurants, all the food sold at night in this city. From the winding alleys to the street corners, there are smoothing, simple dishes that characterize the taste of the countryside; and also the typical dishes of Hanoi such as “phở” (noodle). A bowl of boiled snails, with some acrid figs, eat with garlic- chili sauce on the sidewalk is enough to make the story young men and women become more interesting and juicy.
