The capital of Vietnam is a contradictory city where ancient culture meets modern golf in Hanoi. To the new visitor Hanoi appears very chaotic. The streets are packed with bicycles, trishaws, motorcycles, cars and pedestrians. The two best courses for Hanoi golf visitors are Van Tri Golf Club and Kings Island Golf Resort. Sky Lake Golf Resort is one of the newer Hanoi golf courses nearby Halong Bay and will host the first ever Asian Tour event to be staged in Hanoi in September. Hanoi may be 1000 years old and chaotic, but golf is readily available and modern. While not a golf destination in and of itself, the Vietnam capital is a good stopover for anyone on a Vietnam golf holiday.
