4 Attractions To Visit In Hanoi Vietnam

Hoa Lo Prison

The Hoa Lo Prison, satirically known by American soldiers as the ‘Hanoi Hilton’, was a prison used to hold prisoners of war during the Vietnam War, and before that by French colonists to hold political prisoners.

Now a museum and popular tourist attraction, the Hoa Lo Prison shows visitors what life was like for prisoners and what sort of conditions they lived in, focusing particularly on the political prisoners of the early 1900s.
