Itinerary

Full day: Explore Hanoi’s Highlights (L)

8.00 am - 8.30 am: Our tour guide will meet you at your hotel lobby, then depart for Hanoi full-day city tour.
Please note that visitors should dress with respect without wearing shorts, sleeveless shirts and miniskirts as we are going to visit several sacred places.

8.30 am - 10.30 am: The first place in our city tour is Ho Chi Minh Complex including Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, Ba Dinh Square, Presidential Palace, House 54, House on stilt, Fish pond, and One Pillar Pagoda.

First of all, we will enter Ho Chi Mausoleum at which the body of Ho Chi Minh, also called Uncle Ho, is preserved inside. Ho Chi Minh is the national hero who led Vietnamese people to the victory of the revolution, then become the 1st president in Vietnam.
Remember that security is tight and everyone is required to leave their big bags and cameras before getting in. Moreover, the mausoleum is opened only in the morning except for Monday and Friday morning. It will be closed for two consecutive months from June to August each year.

After passing by Ba Dinh Square, you will see the Presidential Palace which was built in 1900 to house General Indochina Governor.
Following the path, you will visit House 54 and House on stilt where Uncle lived from 1954 until his death after he refused to live in the Presidential Palace nearby. You will find hard to believe our beloved presidents used to live in these humble houses.
On the way out, we pay a visit to One Pillar Pagoda which is famous for its unique architecture. Being built in 1049, it is in the shape of a lotus flower.

10.30 am - 11.30 am: Our tour continues visiting the Temple of Literature which was built in the 1070s to worship Confucius whose ideology affected significantly to the feudal society, called Confucianism. In the beginning, it also was used as a school for princes, thus it is now considered as the first university in Vietnam.

12.00: Lunch will be served in a local restaurant.

13.30: After taking a short break, you will choose to visit one museum among these options:


  • Military History Museum: A national museum exhibits lots of documents and artifacts related to all resistance wars in Vietnam.

  • Museum of Ethnology: One of the biggest museums in Vietnam showing unique features of 54 different ethnic groups in Vietnam.

  • Hoa Lo Museum: A French prison was used to keep Vietnamese political prisoners, then it was the place to capture American pilots during the Vietnam War.


Your choice should be up to your preferences between history and culture.

15.00: We come back to Hanoi’s Old Quarter to take a walk around 36 ancient streets, each of which sells a particular product such as clothes, bamboos, candies, toys, so on. Walking through narrow streets, listening to various sounds of life, and watching vivid activities on the sidewalk would probably impress you so much.

16.00 - 17.00: It’s time to enjoy a traditional art performance of Water Puppet which is accompanied by a live music band.

The puppet show is the end of our city tour. After that, you will be dropped at your hotel, or anywhere in the Old Quarter as you wish.

Thank you so much for trusting us. We hope you would enjoy Hanoi full-day city tour as one of the most memorable trips in Vietnam.

See you again.
