Hanoi voted in top ten destinations for winter holiday

2009-11-10 (GMT + 7)

The US-based Huffington Post has named Hanoi among a top ten of great winter destinations.

It lines up alongside St. Petersburg of Russia, Krakow of Poland, Edinburgh of Scotland, Tallinn of Estonia, Tokyo of Japan, Berlin of Germany, India’s Mumbai, Australia’s Sydney and Iceland’s Reykjavik.

However while “Huff Post” deserves congratulations for including Hanoi its readers may be better off doing their own research. While Hanoi’s autumn is pleasantly cool and largely dry – after Christmas, Hanoi’s winters can become bracingly cold.

By late December temperatures can drop well below 10 degrees centigrade. However, Hanoi remains fascinating throughout the year and the cold weather allows you to discover it via long walks across the city rather than having to hide in airconned rooms.

But you might not need to pack your shorts.
