Although the French colonial period came to an end a long time ago, much of the French arts and deco style are still imprinted in the architecture of Hanoi.
Colonial French architecture has appeared in Hanoi for roughly 200 years and become one of the most charming features of this city. At present, numerous buildings, villas or public constructions with French design in Hanoi are conserved in order to retain their original features and elements.
A hustle and bustle Hanoi now is suffering from rapid urbanization, yet looming in the city noise is an old Hanoi with its delicate architecture and marvelous flower smell.
