Itinerary

Our tour guide will pick you up from your hotel in Old quarter at about 8 AM, driving you to Tran Quoc Pagoda. This place is located on an island east of West Lake (Tay Ho District), which is considered to be the oldest in Thang Long-Hanoi. With its historical and architectural values, Tran Quoc pagoda is famous for its sacred Buddha land, which attracts many Buddhists and visitors to Vietnam. Ready for some grave photos and learn more about Buddhism?

Next, we are going to visit the Ho Chi Minh complex (Ho Chi Minh mausoleum, the Presidential palace, House on stilts. Those places are the final resting place of  Uncle  Ho, and where  He lived and worked from  1954 -  1969). 

Goodbye Uncle Ho’s Complex, we’ll drive to the Vietnam Museum of Ethnology! This is the most recent yet probably the largest and undoubtedly the most interesting Museum in HaNoi and VietNam. There are both indoor and outdoor sections, while the in–housed exhibition is particularly informative, the outdoor display and activities make the museum stand out from the rest. 

There are a number of houses modeled after the traditional architecture of ethnic minorities, especially those who live in Northern and Central highlands. It’s obviously a perfect destination for learning deeply about the culture of Vietnam!

At noon, we will have lunch at a local restaurant with so many delicious Vietnamese dishes! Then, we are going to take a short break to rest!

Are you curious about which is the first university in Vietnam? This is exactly the Temple of Literature! Being an ancient school of Thang Long and the first university in Vietnam, the Temple of Literature is acknowledged as an ancient historical-cultural heritage that gives you a deeper understanding of Hanoi's years of culture and tradition.

How about old prisons look like in Vietnam? Now, we will discover Hoa Lo prison, built in 1899. The French kept mainly political prisoners here along with those awaiting sentencing at the nearby Court of Justice. 

Now guests will have 3 options to choose from! Just continue the tour or pay $10/pax fare to join in a water puppet show or a cooking class.

  • OPT1: Cooking class.
  • OPT2: Water puppet show.
  • OPT3: Just Hanoi City Tour.
