Lying on the eastern part of the Indochinese peninsula, Vietnam is a strip of land shaped like the letter S. China borders it to the north, Laos and Cambodia to the west, the East Sea to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the east and south. Hanoi, formerly known as Thang Long (the flying dragon) is the capital of Vietnam and is situated at the right bank of the Red River. A city between the rivers, built from lowland, Hanoi has many scenic lakes and it is sometimes called “city of lakes”. A variety of options for entertainment in Hanoi can be found throughout the city. Modern and traditional theaters, cinemas, karaoke bars, dance clubs, bowling alleys, and an abundance of opportunities for shopping provide leisure activity for both locals and tourists. Hanoi has been named as one of the top 10 cities for shopping in Asia by Smart Travel Asia. The number of art galleries exhibiting Vietnamese art has dramatically increased in recent years, including galleries such as “Nhat Huy” of Huynh Thong Nhat. According to Trip Index by TripAdvisor, for period June 1 to August 31, 2012 Hanoi  became the cheapest city in the world for two of a one-night stay in a four-star hotel, cocktails, a two-course dinner with a bottle of wine, and a taxi transport (two return journeys of about 3.2 kilometers each).
