Sofitel Legend Metropole, Hanoi, Vietnam

Lying on the eastern part of the Indochinese peninsula, Vietnam is a strip of land shaped like the letter “S”. Vietnam has a long coastline of 3,260 kms. It’s a country of breathtaking natural beauty with an incredible heritage. A very popular belief among Vietnamese is the custom of the ancestor cult. In every household, an ancestor altar is installed in the most solemn location. The Vietnamese culture has always evolved on the basis of the wet rice civilization. Thus, the lifestyle of the Vietnamese population is closely related to its village and native lands.

Hanoi means “the hinterland between the rivers”. Hanoi’s territory is washed by the Red River and its tributaries. The town has gradually expanded to become a very popular and rich residential center and it is the sacred land of Vietnam. Hanoi also characteristically contains 18 beautiful lakes such as Hoan Kiem Lake, West Lake, and Truc Bach Lake etc., which are the lungs of the city, with their surrounding gardens and trees providing a vital source of energy.
