Hanoi Photos

For just so many years, the photographer team of Paradissa Travel have been wandering Hanoi: be it the Old Quarters, the sidewalk cafes, the street restaurants, the open markets... We have never thought the city has become less of a charm for us; neither do we think we have got enough of this amazing capital city of Vietnam. The below photos were taken on one of our photographic tours during the traditional lunar new year of the Vietnamese: Tet.

Hanoi Hoan Kiem Lake
Hanoi Hoan Kiem Lake is right in the city center witnessing the thousand years of ups and downs of the city and of Vietnam. At night, it becomes more stunning a lighting world...It was winter still and the flames trees got the bare branches in front of our camera lens.
