About Hanoi

Hanoi is the capital of Vietnam, and the name itself means "inside the rivers". The city is the country's second largest, after Ho Chi Minh City, with a population of about 6.5 million inhabitants in the metropolitan area, of which about 2.4 million of these live in the city center. Hanoi is very vulnerable to flooding, so it has built up high blast walls at the waterfront from the rivers and lakes adjacent to the city here. Climate-wise, it is said that Hanoi has four seasons when the city is located in northern Vietnam where the winters are colder than in the rest of the country. However, the average temperature is between 15-36 degrees all year round.
