Packed with buildings from different eras in the city’s history, Hanoi’s French quarter, the grid of streets south of Hoan Kiem Lake, is outstanding amongst these capital cities in Southeast Asia. Besides classical European architecture as its name suggests; it also features a fusion between Asian and French style architecture; international modernist architecture (avant-garde Art Deco residences) as well as ancient pagodas. All of these styles are tangible signs of the ideological shifts, which have made an influence on Vietnamese culture for centuries. Much more than just mortar and bricks, they are monuments to the vision of Vietnamese, Soviet and French architects and thinkers. cruise mekong river
