VN012- Hanoi City Tour

    Half day

Hanoi

Hanoi’s history dates back almost a thousand years. It has witnessed numerous incursions from China, seen a host of Vietnamese emperors come and go and at one time it even lost its status as the nation’s capital. The city’s temples, pagodas, and religious practices reflect a strong Chinese influence.

 

Ho Chi Minh Complex: Completed in 1975, the complex includes Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum (close in the afternoon, and on Monday & Friday), the Presidential Palace, House-on-Stilts, and the Ho Chi Minh Museum.

The Temple of Literature: Originally built as a temple to Confucius, this is the site of Vietnam’s first University dating back to 1070. Inside are the stone steles mounted on the backs of turtles, inscribed with names of Vietnam best scholars. The temple highlights the importance that Vietnamese society place then and now on education.

One hour Cyclo Tour through the Old Quarter: Also known as the 36 streets, this bustling area of narrow streets is home to literally thousands of small businesses and shopkeepers. Originally each of the 36 streets names’ was related to the products being sold there. Tour ends.
