Description

In this experience, you will receive a one-day introduction to the capital city, with true insights from a local. Hanoi is currently the second most populated city in Vietnam. Unlike the bustling Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi is sleepy and more tranquil with a nostalgic ambience of times gone by.

There are many ways to start your day in Hanoi. One is to visit Hoan Kiem Lake in the early morning while the air is still fresh, local people usually hang out here at this time to workout. You can join the crowds of the elders practicing taichi or of the kids playing football. Another way is to have breakfast at a local restaurant, then enjoy a cup of "egg coffee" by the street, watching the streams of scooters rushing to work.

Then, take your time to visit the top attractions here: the Old Quarter, the Temple of Literature, the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, Museum of Vietnamese Women, etc. and hear our local insider share their stories about this lovely city. What a great way to begin your Hanoi trip! If you're looking for more fun things to do, check out our suggestions here.

Sample Itinerary

Below is a sample itinerary that we have created that you can reference for a few ideas when creating your own. Creating your own itinerary really depends on your preferences and the local insiders’ recommendations, meaning you can personalise the trip 100%.

An 8-hour Hanoi City experience:

  • Visit the Temple of Literature in the morning.
  • Head to the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, where you can also walk to the One Pillar Pagoda and the Presidential Palace nearby.
  • Have lunch at a local restaurant
  • Visit the Museum of Ethnology
  • Take a walk in the Old Quarter or Hoan Kiem Lake, where you can also easily have dinner and spend the evening after saying goodbye to your local insider.
