Update: Jun 06, 2016
The Ha Noi Department of Tourism recently held seminars in Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang highlighting the city’s tourism opportunities and educating the staff of some 100 local travel agencies on the ‘Magic of Ha Noi’.

Speakers at the seminars said the key tourism sections of town include the Old Quarter - Hoan Kiem Lake area, the area around the West Lake, and the political centre in Ba Dinh district in combination with the ancient Thang Long Citadel and the Temple of Literature.

The suburban Dong Anh district is another area focusing on spiritual tourism at the Co Loa spiral-shaped citadel and Dao Thuc water puppetry village.

Another section covers the Ba Vi area with Duong Lam ancient village, many eco-resorts and traditional craft villages such as Van Phuc (silk making) and Bat Trang (ceramics).

This year, several special tourism products have been launched, with some of them to become annual events, such as the ‘Ky uc Ha Noi’ (Memories of Ha Noi), Ha Noi traditional craft festival and Ao Dai festival.

Notably, the ‘Cam xuc Ha Noi’ (Feelings of Ha Noi) has capitalized on the unique tangible and non-tangible values of the city from its beautiful natural landscape, historical sites to ancient crafts, folk arts and fine cuisine.
