Each city has its own charm: the elegant capital Hanoi combines Asian and French influences and a leisurely-paced lifestyle, coastal Hué straddles the delightfully-named Perfume River and is dotted with impressive pagodas and the ruins of a once-powerful moated citadel, Hoi An boasts well-preserved 17th and 18th century Vietnamese, Chinese and Japanese architecture and a vibrant café scene, while Ho Chi Minh City remains the vibrant cosmopolitan hub of the country.
