DAY 2: HANOI FULL-DAY CITY TOUR

You see the main sights of Hanoi during the full-day excursion. The Ho Chi Minh Complex, which houses his mausoleum and stilt house as well as the Presidential Palace and the One Pillar Pagoda, is visited on the day trip to Hanoi.

You may also go to the Temple of Literature, which was established in the eleventh century, and is the oldest national university. A serene pagoda beside the lake offers a chance to discover Buddhist customs. Go to the renowned Museum of Ethnology.

Go back to the Old Quarter and meander along the narrow streets renowned for their guilds producing specialized crafts. The streets still go by the names that were originally given to them for their places or goods.

You can experience the vibrant rush hour culture of Hanoi by taking a ride on Cyclo, instead of walking. You’ll witness the hustle and bustle of the Old Quarter and French Quarter’s main streets, immersing yourself in the city’s lively atmosphere.
