• You’ll probably have seen pictures of the trains going through the narrow streets of Hanoi. The houses are all very narrow too, and it’s for good reason. The property tax was calculated on a building’s width. A wider house means higher taxes. So, houses were built narrow to avoid paying the higher tax. Place continue to be built even though the tax doesn’t exist anymore!

• The word Hanoi translates as the city of lakes. After all, the city is built on the banks of the Red River. Many rivers flow through here and have formed lakes around the city.

You’ll find the world’s largest mosaic in Hanoi. It’s 2.5 miles (4km) and is called Hanoi Ceramic Mural. Well worth looking at.
