Hanoi City Discovery Tour
If you have reached Hanoi and have not yet seen the various sights you wish to see in this historic place, you need not worry as you can take the Hanoi City Discovery Tour that will take you around all the historic places including monuments and other places worth visiting in Hanoi.
Visit the Temple of Literature which is home to a University that is 1000 years old.
See Lang Pagoda a large airy symmetrical architectural structure having over 100 compartments
The presidential palace, Uncle Ho’s resting place and One Pillar Pagoda are landmarks that should be on your must see list
Visit the Museum of Ethnology where you can study about the culture, dress and lifestyle of around 54 old Vietnamese groups
Admire the fascinating French architecture as you walk down the Phan Dinh Phung, a boulevard that is lined with trees on both sides.
See the oldest bridge in Hanoi made in the 19th century by French builders.
Your Hanoi day trip should begin with a visit to Ho Chi Minh mausoleum. Here you will hear about the history of a man who single handedly led a campaign against the French colonial rule in search of Vietnamese independence. After Ho Chi Minh’s death in 1969, his body was preserved here. The historic One pillar Pagoda and the Presidential Palace should be your next stop as you need to just go around the grounds to see them.
If you walk down Phan Dinh Phung Street you will get a chance to view the gorgeous architecture of the French buildings. Further down you will be able to walk on the oldest bridge in Hanoi, the Long Bien Bridge also built by the French.
After this a visit to the Temple of Literature is a must as this 11th century relic was built in honor of the Confucius, a Chinese scholar.
You can mingle with the locals to get an insight into the culture and ideals of the place. Enjoy lunch with a local family savoring the genuine home cooked food.
A visit to the Museum of Ethnology will educate you about the tribal arts and artifacts of Vietnam’s minorities that have been brought from all over and collected here. You will be able to get a view of the traditional village houses too.
The tour ends with a visit to Lang which is the oldest Buddhist temple in Hanoi. This place gives a serenity and peace that can be experienced by the young who come here to read and paint and old who come to relax in the peaceful environment.
