Hanoi

It is almost six months since we returned from Hanoi, however I called in for three days on my way back from China to see for myself the changes beginning to take place following the announcement of Hanoi’s expansion into a “super city”.

Officially designated on 7th August, the expansion makes Hanoi the 17th largest capital city in the world with 6.2 million people, double the previous population. Hà Tây no longer exists as a separate province.

“This adjustment has sprung from the country’s demand for development opportunities for the new capital.”
