If your trip to Hanoi is all booked but your travel itinerary is a little on the empty side, let us give you a helping hand.Experience the best that this place has to offer by adding Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and Temple of Literature to your schedule.

It’s one sight you’ll usually find on many travelers’ must-do lists. If you still have some space on your schedule, Hanoi Old City Gate and St. Joseph’s Cathedral will keep you occupied too.
What are the best road trip destinations near Hanoi?

Thiền viện Trúc lâm Tây Thiên, Tam Dao Golf & Resort and Silver Falls alone make the drive out here worthwhile. The locals are also likely to point you in the direction of Hoa Lu, 55 miles away. If you only see one thing here, make sure it’s Tam Coc Bich Dong. (But we’re also big fans of Bai Dinh Pagoda and Thung Nham Bird Garden.)

What kind of rental car should I get for Hanoi?
Some travelers find weaving through traffic in big cities a bit daunting. In a small vehicle like a compact or economy, the streets of Hanoi will be a cinch. Prefer to spend your getaway discovering the surrounding bays? Take a look at our fantastic range of mid-size and full-size SUVs. With loads of space and more power under the hood, these larger vehicles will make those long, scenic drives even more memorable. Crossing off all the experiences and attractions that Hanoi is known for has never been easier with your own set of wheels.
Should I get a luxury rental car in Hanoi?
You’ll be pleased to hear that there’s a wide variety of both high-end and economy rental vehicles in Hanoi. What you end up going with is largely dependent on your budget as well as what you plan to do. Prestige vehicles offer unparalleled mod cons and comfort. If you feel like splashing out, why not go for a high-end SUV, or perhaps a slick mid-sized sedan? On the other hand, if you’re just after a set of wheels to get you around town as cheaply as possible, go for a no-frills compact vehicle (or something else that won’t burn a hole in your pocket).
What side of the road do they drive on in Hanoi?
You’ll be cruising along the right side of the road in Hanoi. Even though the conditions may be similar to home, it’s always smart to drive more cautiously in new and unfamiliar destinations.
Is it difficult to park in Hanoi?
It can be. Circling the block looking for a parking spot is all part of the fun in Hanoi. Getting near the popular sights is easier if you plan ahead.
Does Hanoi have peak-hour traffic?
Since the population of Hanoi is approximately 1,431,300, you can expect some denser traffic in the downtown area. Before and after work is when traffic is at its peak, so you may want to stay off the road during these times.

What happens if I get a speeding fine while driving a rental car in Hanoi?
Generally, your car rental company will charge the amount detailed on the fine to your credit card, including local surcharges and taxes. Or they may share your information with the relevant local authority, who’ll then send a fine to your postal address.

What are the rules around drink driving in Hanoi?
In Hanoi, it’s an offence to drive with a BAC (blood alcohol content) greater than 0.05%. If you’re in the mood for a couple of drinks with lunch or dinner, leave your car at your hotel.
Is turning on a red light allowed in Hanoi?
Yes, you may turn on a red light in Hanoi. But first you must bring the car to a total stop. Continue only when your way is clear of oncoming traffic.
Are seat belts compulsory in Hanoi?
We always recommend buckling up, even though seat belts aren’t required by law in Hanoi. Wearing a seat belt is one of the most reliable ways to save lives and reduce injuries in a crash.
