Hanoi City Tour

(1 day - tour code HNCT01)

The city’s temples and pagodas and the religious practices performed reflect a strong Chinese influence. For nearly 800 years Hanoi was the home of various royal dynasties until Hue became the new imperial capital in 1802. With the coming of the French at the end of the 19th century the city gained a new way of life.
Today the capital has a population approaching 3 million people ; yet it still has the feeling of a small town, particularly in and around the Old Quarter.

Morning : Depart at 8h30. Visit Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, Ho Chi Minh Museum, One - pillared pagoda (built in the 11th century) and Tran Quoc pagoda, the Temple of Literature – the first national university of Vietnam since the 11th century.
Have lunch.

After-noon : Visit the Museum of Ethnology (the best place to understand the culture of 54 ethnic groups in Vietnam), walk around Hanoi’s Old Quarter and the 36 traditional handicraft streets, crossing many charming streets, lined with dozens of old trees, beautiful lakes and colonial and romantic architecture. You will also visit the Restored Sword Lake, famous for the legend of the turtle and the sword in the 15th century.

In the evening, you will enjoy water puppet show (start at 18h30 or 20h30).
