While you could spend your entire visit to Hanoi strolling past sidewalk vendors, impromptu badminton games and scenic lakes, there is a wealth of activities to explore in the capital. Don't miss out on unique cultural events, Western imports and all of the other thrills and engagements Hanoi has to offer. For a slice of authentic Vietnamese leisure that appeals to both locals and travellers, begin by sampling traditional performances at local theatres. The Water Puppet Theatre at Hoan Kiem Lake in the heart of Hanoi is always a big draw and Cheo, a satirical form of folk music theatre, is showcased at a number of indoor and outdoor venues in the city.

Should you be athletically inclined enjoy a round at one of the many first-class golf resorts in the area, a shimmy up a rock wall or a bicycle tour through Hanoi. After exerting yourself, cool off with a rubdown at a lavish massage parlour, plentiful around the capital city. Hanoi also boasts an extensive supply of modern entertainment, from karaoke and state-of-the-art cinemas to tenpin bowling and casino gaming. Whether you're harmonizing with a hostess, taking in a taste of home or lollygagging with Lady Luck, it's a safe bet that Hanoi will put a jackpot smile on your face.
