  • Day 2

    Hanoi full day city (B/L)

    After breakfast, the day starts with visit to the complex dedicated to Ho Chi Minh - the nation’s founder, containing Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum (viewed from outside on Mondays, Fridays and afternoons due to closure), and the house on stilts, One Pillar Pagoda. Next, visit Tran Quoc Pagoda - Hanoi’s oldest pagoda on the bank of West Lake.

    In the afternoon, discover the famed Old Quarter on foot. We walk through the hidden alleys, amaze at the old style tube houses, visit the lively local wet market and lovely peaceful temple Bach Ma. Next, hop on a traditional bicycle rickshaws move at leisure pace that’s perfect for photos and slow-moving sightseeing. Seat back and relax while your driver weaves through the busy streets, dodging speeding motorbikes and rolling past French colonial houses.
    As the local do, sit down at a local café by the main church, enjoy a cup of ‘Tra Chanh’ – green tea with lime and chat with the youth. Attend a water-puppet theatre performance. The art of water puppetry began a thousand years ago, possibly in the flooded rice fields of Vietnam. Puppeteers today stand in waist-high water and manipulate their puppets in such a skilled way that you can’t help but be captivated by the performance.
