Hanoi City Break

Map Image

As the vibrant heart and soul of Vietnam, Hanoi is a tantalising place of extremes. From a maze of ancient backstreets where hawkers and street stalls abound and traditional Vietnamese life is played out on the kerbside, to modern buildings and shady, tree-lined boulevards, Vietnam's capital is sure to delight. This three-day city break will reveal Hanoi as a delightful fusion between classic and contemporary Vietnam.

Itinerary

Day 1 Arrive Hanoi

It's easy to get swept up in Hanoi's whirl of colour and commotion. Spend a free day exploring the city's parks and market and perhaps relax with a sweet Vietnamese coffee along Hoan Kiem Lake. In the evening sample some local cusine, such a s a steaming bowl of pho.

Day 2 Hanoi

Start the day with a visit to the Ho CHi Minh Mausoleum complex, the site where Vietnam's independence was declared in 1945. Then it's on to the Temple of Literature before a delicious lunch. Afterwards, learn about Vietnam's cultural diversity at the Museum of Ethnology, then finish the day with a walking tour of the Old Quarter. See how locals eat together on the sidewalks and perhaps join them for a refreshing bia hoi.

Day 3 Free Day Hanoi

Today is free to further explore the colourful sights of Hanoi. Perhaps arise early for some tai chi with the locals on the banks of Hoan Kiem Lake, scour the many markets for quality textiles and handicrafts, explore the labyrinth of backstreets by cyclo or take in a water-puppet show.
