Detailed Itinerary

  • In the morning

Our guide will pick you up at your hotel in Hanoi at around 8:30 to start this full day city tour. We first head to the Ho Chi Minh Complex to visit Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum which is a great lively illustrator of the national unity, and then Uncle Ho’s House and the One-pillar pagoda – one of the two most iconic temples in Vietnam.The next destination of Tran Quoc Pagoda located by the dazzling West Lake will give you a real look at one of the picturesque attractions in Hanoi formed by a harmonious architecture taking advantage of the watery landscape. After that, we’ll move to visit the Temple of Literature (or Văn Miếu in Vietnamese) which reveals the Hanoians’ spirit of study in the past, and then stop for lunch at a local restaurant nearby.

  • In the afternoon

Following the break, we will visit the Museum of Ethnology where you can get a glance of different ethnic minorities living in Vietnam. Then, with the next 1-hour cyclo around Hanoi’s Old Quarter, you are promised to get a slow-speed view of a maze of labyrinthine streets as the daily life of the locals. You’ll next be transferred to enjoy a water puppet which tells you a great traditional art performance of Vietnam. Experiencing a cup of special coffee while looking down the streets, viewing the bustling life of the locals in the late afternoon before ending makes this day trip in Hanoi even more unforgettable.
