Been There – Hanoi

Starbucks Been There – Hanoi is the first BT city mug from Vietnam. According to their official Facebook page, this new release is available in stores right now.
Hanoi is the capital of Vietnam and the second-largest city in the country. “City for Peace” was the title presented to Hanoi by UNESCO on 16 July 1999. You can see this nickname on the front of the mug.
“Ancient Capital” or “The Capital of The Thousand Years Of Civilization” is another nickname that gives us an idea of how old the city is. This settlement was inhabited since at least 3000 BC!
The picture of an old man and two kids on the front of the mug might very possibly be referencing to Temple of Literature which is one of several temples in Vietnam that are dedicated to Confucius. It was built in 1070 and now also hosts the Imperial Academy, Vietnam’s first national university. Btw, the image of The Pavilion of Constellation is depicted on 100.000 Vietnamese Dong banknote.
