Full day itinerary of "Unforgettable Complete Day Tour Of Hanoi".
This day tour is carefully designed for you to have a deep insight into Hanoi's culture. The tour includes not only all the city key sites but also the places where the others rarely come.
First, you’ll be picked up by our expert guide and driver from your hotel to Ngoc Ha Village. Originally formed long ago as a flower village for the city daily consumption, it is now just like an oasis surrounded by the high- risers due to the urbanization. Herein, the circle walk starts from the village communal house and ends by the Huu Tiep Lake where is the wreckage of a B52 that was shot down in the famous Christmas bombing of 1972. The village shows a great contrast between now and past. Additionally, when you take a walk through the village, you’ll have a chance to view and experience the local life and interact frequently.
Then, the tour will continue with a visit to the historical Ba Dinh Square, a perfect place to review the Vietnam’s modern history. You will walk just outside the Mausoleum to the Uncle Ho’s House, the Presidential Palace and the One Pillar Pagoda - all “must see” landmarks.
In the afternoon, proceed to the famous Temple of Literature that was built in 1070 and best known as the First National University of Vietnam.
You will also visit another key site of the Hanoi: The Museum of Hoa Lo Prison, widely known as the “Hanoi Hilton”, a nickname used by Americans during the Vietnam War. This famous prison is where the POW’s were formerly imprisoned and has been mostly torn down.
Later in the afternoon it’s time to chill out with a cyclo ride through the Old Quarter. The charming area comes out with its small alleys, old houses, charming little cafes, boutique shops and variety of food on streets…
Disembark to start a walk from the City Gate's O Quan Chuong and en route at Ta Hien Street and enjoy a glass of local beer at its corner with the locals around before concluding the tour with the unique water puppet show at Thang Long Theater.
