Summary: With a population of approximately 8 million, Hanoi is the capital city of Vietnam. Hanoi's summer temps are in the mid 90s. In the winter, temperatures are in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Hanoi is an interesting place to live, but be prepared for lots of noise and pollution. If you're moving to Hanoi with kids, there are several schools that expat families recommend. Driving tip: get a motorcycle.

What do I need to know about living in Hanoi?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Hanoi, they said:

"Be prepared for lots of noise and pollution. Most people find learning Vietnamese very difficult. But other than that, it is a very interesting place to live, also lots to see outside the city especially if you have a motorbike! Most Hanoians are very nice to foreigners," explained one expat living in Hanoi, Vietnam.
