The French Quarter of Hanoi  was built to the south of the Old Quarter and the Hoan Kiem Lake from 1883, right after the French arrival in the city. The French Quarter of Hanoi is characterized with wide tree-lined boulevards, sidewalk cafes, fine-dining restaurants, luxurious hotels and French-styled villas.
