    TripAdvisor advises travelers that the charming Hanoi has aged well, preserving the Old Quarter, monuments and colonial architecture, while making room for modern development alongside.

    The website said that lakes, parks, shady boulevards and more than 600 temples and pagodas add to the appeal of this city, which is easily explored by taxi.

    London in the UK tops the list, followed by Paris in France, Rome in Italy, Crete in Greece, Bali in Indonesia, Phuket in Thailand, Barcelona in Spain, Istanbul in Turkey, Marrakech in Morocco, Dubai in United Arab Emirates.

    Earlier, Hanoi has been named among the most affordable destinations for 2019 world adventures, according to a list released by Uproxx, an entertainment and popular culture news website.

    Vietnam and its Hanoi capital in particular should be on everyone’s list of must-see destinations. There’s an atmosphere to the place that grabs you and doesn’t let go. It’s the sort of spot that you may end up spending months in without really noticing. You can grab a bed in a hostel for US$5 a night. Entire apartments go for as little as US$15 a night on Airbnb. This all helps in that “spending a couple of months here” attitude you’ll eventually adopt.

    In the first three months of 2019, Hanoi welcomed more than 7.4 million visitors, a rise of 10.6% year-on-year, according to the municipal Department of Tourism.
