Hanoi voted as the best city for beer lovers
Voted by global travelers and beer lovers on the online travel agency Booking.com, Hanoi is the best destination for drinking beer in Vietnam.
Among Vietnam’s very first breweries in the 19th century under French colonial time, Hanoi is well-known for draft beer (“bia hoi” in Vietnamese) in countless spots around the capital. Booking.com describes Hanoi as"a must-visit beer haven” with the experience of drinking bia hoi while sitting on a plastic stool.
The object of the survey is adult business or leisure travelers who traveled within 12 months and plan to travel in the next 12 months. The survey attracted 47,728 respondents in 28 countries and territories.
According to Booking.com, Ta Hien – Luong Ngoc Quyen street intersection is the famous go-to place for cold bia hoi in Hanoi with lots of bars, pubs, eateries, and beer stalls on the sidewalks. Freshly locally brewed every day, bia hoi only has 3% alcohol and is cheaper than others. A 300ml glass of bia hoi is around VND7,000-10,000 while the cost for a bottle or can of beer ranges from VND25,0000 to 200,000.
