Hanoi (River Interior), with estimated population nearly 6.5 million (2009), is the capital and second-largest city of Vietnam. The city is located on the right bank of the Red River.
October 2010 will officially mark 1000 years of the establishment of the city. On this occasion, Hanoi has been named as one of the world's "Top Destinations 2010".
Hanoi has been inhabited since at least 3000 BC. One of the first known permanent settlements is the Co Loa citadel, founded around 200 BC.
In 1010, Ly Thai To, the first ruler of the Ly Dynasty, moved the capital of DaiViet, the Great Viet (then the name of Vietnam) to the site of the Dai La citadel. Claiming to have seen a dragon ascending the Red River, he renamed it to Thang Long (Ascending dragon) - a name still used poetically to this day.
In 1831, the Nguyen emperor Minh Mang renamed it to Hanoi (can be translated as Between Rivers or River Interior) .
