Hanoi's history dates back almost a thousand years. During that time it has witnessed numerous incursions from China, seen a host of Vietnamese emperors come and go and at one time even lose its status as the nation's capital. The city's temples and pagodas and the religious practices performed reflect a strong Chinese influence. For nearly 800 years, Hanoi was the home of various royal dynasties until Hue became the new imperial capital in 1802. With the coming of the French at the end of the 19th century the city gained a new lease of life. This European influence can still be seen in the elegant colonial buildings that line the broad tree-lined boulevards of much of the city. Today, the capital has a population approaching 4 million people; yet it still has the feeling of a small town, particularly in and around the Old Quarter.
At 08:00, there will be a pick up from your hotel.
The tour is split into a morning session with a visit to Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, his house on stilts, One Pillar Pagoda and the Temple of Literature. We will then enjoy our lunch at one of Hanoi's many fine restaurants.
In the afternoon, we will visit the Museum of Ethnology, the Ngoc Son Temple and Hoan Kiem Lake and also one hour cyclo tour through the Old Quarter.
At approximately 18:00, we will return you to your hotel. If you prefer we can arrange for you to watch a performance of the famous Water Puppet Theatre.
