Hanoi is said to be the quintessential city of Vietnam - a millennium – old capital of crumbling pagodas and chaotic streets existed a thousand years which is a mix of a busy modern life and sustainable values preserved for generations. As such, the capital has become extremely attractive to tourists both local and international, especially with cultural and historical tours. Let's our Hanoi City Tour take you to explore this 1000 years old capital.


- Visiting the outstanding attractions with cultural and historical values of Hanoi.

- Enjoying the natural landscapes and climate of Hanoi.

- Experiencing the traditional vehicle of cyclo to go through the narrow ancient streets of the Old Quarter.

The trip begins as we pay a visit to Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum to enjoy the architectural and historical aspects of Uncle Ho’s final resting-place. The building is where visitors can express their admiration and gratitude towards the common father/uncle of Vietnamese who has led the country to independence and reunification. It is popularly known among Vietnamese as Uncles’ Mausoleum, for the intimate and familiar atmosphere, Ho Chi Minh always created when he was alive. Built over 2 years from 1973 to 1975, the Mausoleum is also a lively illustrator of national unity.

From the mausoleum, we walk to visit the One Pillar Pagoda and the Presidential Palace nearby. 

The next destination is Thang Long Imperial Citadel, the apex of regional political power for more than a millennium where research and excavation are still underway, and then head to another 11th-century relic, the Temple of Literature, which was built in homage to the Chinese scholar Confucius.

In the afternoon, visit the Ngoc Son temple set on a tiny island on the Hoan Kiem Lake, the beautiful lake which is said to be the heart of Hanoi. You’ll hear how it got its name from a legend of an emperor, a magic sword, and a giant turtle. Take a breezy cyclo ride through the Old Quarter’s 36 streets, named after the products that were sold from their shops. Today, vendors on Tin and Bamboo Streets still sell the same wares. End your day with a delightful water puppet show, a traditional art that is still being performed today. End of Hanoi City Tour Full Day.
