As the capital of Vietnam, Hanoi is the cultural, economic, and political center of the country. With this tour, you have the chance to learn about the history, architecture, culture, and cuisine of this charming place for an experience to remember forever.
Your tour begins at about 8:00 when your guide picks you up from your hotel in the Hanoi's Old Quarter. The first place you visit is the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. Here, you learn about the life and career of the great leader Ho Chi Minh. Then you continue your visit to Ho Chi Minh Museum and One Pillar Pagoda. This site shows unique architectural buildings constructed during the11th century.
Next, you go to Tran Quoc Pagoda, Vietnam's oldest temple built by Ly Nam De. After that, you go to Thanh Nien street for a unique view of the West Lake, one of the largest lakes in Hanoi. And just before your lunch, you visit Bat Trang pottery village (only on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays).
After recovering your energies for the second part of your tour, you go straight to the Ethnology Museum (only on Sundays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays). Next, you visit the Temple of Literature, the first university of Vietnam, which was built in 1070 by King Ly Thanh Tong.
