This much-coveted area has developed into a trendy suburb with endless offerings and a delicious marriage of modern cafes, boutiques, weekend markets, local food stalls by the streets, upscale bistros and trendy bars.

BEYOND THE NEIGHBOURHOOD
HOA BINH PARK (Peace park)
Hoa Binh Park was completed on October 8, 2010, on the occasion of marking the 1000th anniversary of Thang Long (Thăng Long). It is renowned for the unique symbolic architecture which can be found around the park, starting with the Lac bird at the northern gate, flying pigeons and the 30 metre statute of Peace.
PHO THIN 1995
Located in the heart of the Old Quarters, this gem is literally a “hole in the wall”, dishing out wholesome-flavoured broth and noodles that are cooked to perfection. Set in a dark dining room with stainless-steel table tops and wooden benches, it might not look like much, but prepare to be blown away by the traditional flavours of the closely guarded family recipe.
