St Joseph's Cathedral
Hanoi's neo-gothic highlight
What we say:
The neo-gothic style of the cathedral looks somewhat out of place in the busy streets of Hanoi, although it's built in what's considered to be the French quarter of the city.
The church itself has a striking presence, with its two large square towers, and can be visited any day of the week, making a quiet escape from the noisy Hanoi streets.
If you happen to be in Hanoi for Christmas, this is the place to visit. The courtyard of the church becomes a huge gathering point and takes on a real carnival atmosphere.
