Map of Hanoi

I love maps and always will try to pick up one free on arrival at the airport. Singapore has fabulous BIG map given to visitors free at the Changi Airport, the publisher can afford that because it comes with a lot of paid adverts by hotels, travel agents and the like, which makes it even more desirable. My question is does Hanoi has a map like that? Of course I can buy one by Periplus(?) just that it doesn't have all the ads, besides over the years their prices of their maps had gone thru the roof.

Sure we have maps for Vietnam and specific maps for each tourism city. You can buy it in some street-side shops with a very low price. or you can get one free at the hotel where you are staying. Ask the receptionist for one if you don't see it around. If you travel with an agency, you will be always offered one for free.

I haven't seen maps available at the airport in Hanoi, but I haven't really looked either. You can pick up a free map at the tourist office right across from Hoan Kiem Lake.

If you are going to buy a map I highly recommend Xin Chao Hanoi created by two Hanoi expats. It covers all districts in Hanoi and does a very nice job of highlighting popular (as voted by expats not paid for my the company) dining, shopping, and other destinations.

Hello! Mostly of hotels in Old Quarter supply free maps when you stay with them. It is map of Old Quarter (small). If you want to get bigger and detail, you need to buy at the post office. It is cheap.

Have good day

I second Tecalli recommendation of picking up a copy of Xin Chao Hanoi. It is distributed by a Thai firm (Nancy Chandler) and was prepared by a couple of xpats. www.nancychandler.net/product.asp?pId=1105The current version is the 1st edition and it does need some work to improve it however, it sure was a great aid for my trip that just ended yesterday. My hotel was so impressed with the map that they searched it on the internet and purchased their own copy at one of the several places that it is sold. I understand that the map also has a French version. Hotels also usually have their own maps but the scale is not as good as the Xin Chao. Please understand that I have absolutely NO connection with the firm that distributes the map but it was such a great aid recently for my wife and I that I believe other travelers might want to look into this travel aid.

Before Google made (paper) maps superfluous I got mine at the largest bookstores in HCMC, Ha Noi, Nha Trang.

I hope that street view will some day come to Vietnam as well!
