Where is Ha Noi city located?
Ha Noi (sometimes Hanoi) is iconic due to its status as the country’s capital city, but the story only really begins there. Whilst developing at a speedy pace, it still maintains its charming characteristics that make it such a popular place to live. The city is the second largest city in Vietnam, with around 3.5 million residents, and is located in the North of the country, roughly 1100 kilometres from Ho Chi Minh City.
The weather in the North goes through four distinct seasons. The summers are still hot and sunny like other regions of Vietnam, but the winters are short and dry, and also cool by Southeast Asian standards.
