Getting to know a new city in a month isn’t always easy. From navigating immigration and customs to trying to decipher foreign street signs, finding a city you love, much less a hidden gem can sometimes be difficult. Our travel pro tip?

This week, we’re celebrating the top 5 cafés in Hanoi, Vietnam. These cafés are our favorite places to work, play or relax after a productive day. From delicious egg coffees to views that can’t be beat, here are our five favorite cafés in Hanoi, and why we love them.
Cong Cafe is a vintage, army-themed café located in Hanoi. With multiple locations, all with working hours that stretch until 11:30pm, this café is a Remote favorite in this Vietnamese city.
Only a five minute walk away from the Remote Year workspace, this 24/7 café is a go-to for many Remotes in Hanoi. It has both indoor and outdoor seating so you can choose whichever setting sparks your creativity.
Remotes love Tranquil for its quiet, cozy atmosphere. Tranquil is dedicated to both coffee lovers and book lovers, of which there are many in the Remote Year Nation.
Known to locals as a hidden gem, Ca Phe Pho Co is a hideaway café with amazing views over Hoan Kiem Lake. Check it out if you want to immerse yourself in lush scenery and delicious egg coffee.
L’etage Cafe is the café to visit if you’re craving the best egg coffee in town. It has a great view of the Hoan Kiem lake and a few furry kittens on location to be your café companions.
