Foreign trade makes up one of the largest business sectors here, in addition to finance and banking. Many large international corporations including Coca-Cola, Price Waterhouse Coopers and Nike base much of their Southeast Asian concerns in the city. Hanoi has a rich cultural heritage and there are many historical sites and monuments located all over the city including the Old Quarter, the One Pillar Pagoda, Hanoi Citadel and the Flag Tower of Hanoi. The city is home to several prominent and internationally renowned museums including the Vietnam Museum of Fine Arts.
