Hanoi Charming and Historical Day

Hanoi Charming and Historical Day

Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, is one of Asia’s most fascinating cities, offering a unique blend of oriental lifestyle and western charm. This is a city of exotic, brightly painted temples and pagodas, elegant ochre-washed colonial villas, bustling narrow streets and alleys, tree-lined boulevards, green parks, shaded lakes and the fascinating Old Quarter.

Hanoi Charming and Historical Day

Depart at 08:00 to visit the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. Experience the architectural solemnity and history of Uncle Ho’s final resting place. Enjoy a short walk to the Presidential Palace to see Ho Chi Minh’s Stilt House and the famous One Pillar Pagoda.
Continue the tour to visit ‘B-52 Lake’ (Huu Tiep Lake) where the wreckage of a bomber downed in 1972 remains in the water. Then it’s on to the Temple of Literature, Vietnam’s first university, constructed in 1070. Its garden and well-preserved architecture offer a relaxing glimpse into Vietnam’s ancient history.
Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant with a steaming bowl of delicious noodle soup.  Following lunch, select one of many renowned museums to visit such as Hoa Lo Prison (called the ‘Hanoi Hilton’ by US pilots during the war), the Army Museum, the National Fine Arts Museum, the History Museum or the Ethnology Museum.
On the way back to the centre of town, visit Tran Quoc Pagoda on West Lake (one of the oldest in Vietnam) and the site where American politician John Mc. Cain crash-landed in 1967.
Take a cyclo ride around Hanoi’s old streets then stretch your legs wandering through the narrow alleys of Hanoi’s ancient Old Quarter, where you can experience the hustle and bustle of Hanoi’s daily life. Alternatively, you can finish some last-minute shopping.
Conclude your day with Vietnam’s charming Water Puppet Theatre.
