Day 2
Hanoi, Vietnam
Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi Breakfast

Vietnam’s quaint capital is a city of wide tree-lined boulevards, tranquil lakes and colonial villas. It has a slower-paced atmosphere compared to other major Asian cities but it has something to offer for everyone.

Depart for a full day tour of Hanoi. The first visit will be at the Temple of Literature. In 1076, Vietnam's first university, Quoc Tu Giam, was established within a temple to educate Vietnam's royalty, mandarins and members of the elite. The university functioned for an incredible 700 years and its gardens and well-preserved architecture offer a fascinating glimpse into Vietnam’s past.

Visit the One Pillar Pagoda founded by King Ly Thai To in 1049. This structure is one of Vietnam’s most iconic temples. Close by is the mausoleum and house of the historic father figure of modern Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh. He lived in this modest stilt house from 1958 to 1969. (Viewed from the outside; closed on Mondays and Fridays and from October to November)

Next, take a walking tour through Hanoi’s Old Quarter, also known as the ‘36 streets’. This bustling area of narrow streets

and alleys is home to literally thousands of small businesses and shopkeepers. Visit a family living in a typical ‘tube house’ built in the 19th century. These tube houses can be as narrow as 2 meters wide with three generations of families living under the same roof.

Tonight, enjoy a My Village show which is a cultural performance highlighting the peaceful country life and poetic scenery of Vietnam. It contains episodes of Vietnamese traditional folk games, dances and circus acts performed against the background of traditional and modern music combined with artistic lighting. Bamboo pipes and baskets are used throughout the performance as set decorations and traditional daily activities of villagers and festive celebrations are demonstrated by performers and musicians in farmers’ clothing. After the show, transfer back to the hotel.


My Village show is performed four times a week and the schedule is not fixed. Please check before booking,

Shout Out to Tran Quyen in Hanoi

By: Travelme25

Reviewed on: 09 Jan 2017

Mr. Quyen was my guide in Hanoi. He was very knowledgeable and competent. He taught me how to cross the busy streets and shared a lot of historical info which was useful context for the rest of my time in Vietnam. I ran into a few challenges while visiting other cities and he was the first person I thought about contacting if I needed additional help.

Our cousin used Rachel for her tour adviser and highly recommended her. Rachel was very easy to work with. She knew the country and the tours offered. Rachel was very prompt at returning e-mails and was available for telephone conversations. She listened to us and was able to create an itinerary we really enjoyed. We will recommend her to friends who may be looking for a very positive and successful experience with a tour adviser.
