12 Best Homestays In Hanoi, Vietnam - Updated 2024

| 5 min read

Having kept the outside world at bay till the 1990s, Hanoi is racing to make up for all the time it lost. Layered with remnants and memorabilia of the Chinese and French occupation, Vietnam’s second-largest city and capital is a typically cacophonous South East Asian city with a resilient charm. Having been labelled by UNESCO as the ‘City for Peace’ in the past, the over 1,000-year-old Hanoi is a passage from the past to the present as one navigates through the original streets of the Old Quarter to its wild and wonderfully evolving arts scene. In addition, the best way to experience authentic Vietnamese culture is to indulge in all the non-touristy things to do in its capital. If you’re coming here to do just that, check out the best homestays in Hanoi, Vietnam.
