Hanoi, Vietnam’s political and cultural capital, feels somewhat intimate when compared with Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). Layers of history unfold at every quarter, revealing its past under French and Chinese occupation showcased in its yellow hued colonial merchants’ houses, Confucian temples and ubiquitous street vendors serving sumptuous cuisine at every corner.
The maze of streets and tumultuous markets are a feast for the senses; make the most of them with our private Street Food Experience. Our city tour takes you to The Old Quarter, The Temple of Literature, Ho Chi Minh’s mausoleum as well as his house, a fascinating structure where Ho Chi Minh once lived and worked. Finish the day off with a water puppet show, completely unique to Hanoi. The city is not just for those in search of Vietnam’s historic charm though, so head to the Old Quarter for a new bevy of upmarket boutiques and fine dining restaurants that have snuggled their way into this ancient part of town. Undoubtedly a destination in itself, Hanoi also acts as an entry point for Halong Bay, Sapa and the far north.
