Day 2: Hanoi - City Tour and Food Tour by scooter (B/D)

Meals provided: Breakfast, Dinner

This morning, visit West Lake, the largest lake of the capital, once was named as “Foggy Lake” from its misty condition. Its name was changed to “West Lake” in 1573 to avoid the given name of King Le The Tong. Stop at Tran Quoc Pagoda, the oldest pagoda in the city, originally constructed in the sixth century during the reign of Emperor Ly Nam De, thus giving it an age of 1,400 years. 

Our next destination will be Vietnam Museum of Ethnology. Almost no foreign tourists to Hanoi refuse to visit the Vietnam Museum of Ethnology, where they can look into a vivid picture of the miniaturized Vietnamese ethnic community’s life.
Have lunch at a local restaurant (your own account).

Afternoon visit Temple of Literature (Vietnamese name is Quoc Tu Giam) – The Vietnam’s first University, which was built in 1070 in honor of Confucius, his followers and Chu Van An, a moral figure in Vietnamese education.

Next, we move to Hilton Jail or Hoa Lo prison, a prison used by the French colonists in Vietnam for political prisoners, and later by North Vietnam for prisoners of war during the Vietnam War when it was sarcastically known to American prisoners of war as the “Hanoi Hilton”.

Later enjoy a cyclo tour around Hanoi Old Quarter – 36 streets and guilds to discover the ancient feature of Hanoi and daily life. Stop to visit Ngoc Son Temple which is located at the northern end of Sword Lake (aka Hoan Kiem Lake). From the shore, walking on the Welcoming Morning Sunlight Bridge leads to the island.

After that, save your appetite for this one! The stop on our foodie tour is a family run eatery Hanoians claim is the best spot for Banh Cuon (steamed rolled cake) in town.  The skilled chef will demonstrate for us how the ingredients are put together as we get to experience a front row seat to the culinary process.  

Our tour continues weaving through the streets bathed in the glow of colorful lanterns and decorative lights in the Old Quarter as we ride along the bank of the Red River to take in the views of Hanoi under the cover of night.

This leads us to our next stop, a local family eatery where you will get to enjoy Bun Cha (grilled pork with vermicelli noodle). And we will sample local favorite delicacies in a nearby neighborhood includes: Banh Goi (pillow cake), Nem ran (traditional spring roll), Banh ran man, Banh ran Ngot (salty and sweet doughnut), Shrimp cake.  
You’ll be taken on a ride over to West Lake to enjoy the scenery before arriving at Ngu Xa village to try Freshly grilled seafood and some local desert like Che xoai( Mango desert), Purple rice with yoghurt and other traditional fried Vietnamese dishes.

As our tour takes you away from the West Lake area and back into the heart of Hanoi, you will be taken past the Ho Chi Minh memorial where guards can be seen performing their nightly ceremonies.  Nothing captures the reverence and sanctity that the Vietnamese hold for Ho Chi Minh more than these nightly ceremonies.

Finally, we will head back into the densely packed streets of Hanoi to the train tracks where locals cook, relax, and sell their wares.  It is a bustling alley full of locals going about their nightly lives, right next to active train tracks!

Get back to your hotel at 9:00 PM.

    Majestic and adventurous

    Mekong Delta tour was amazing, never seen a place like it before. It was so peaceful and the boat rides were fun. Through Asianway travel, i traveled from Hanoi to Ho Chi Mihn city including Sapa and Halong Bay. All of it was made super easy and adjustable when needed by Tina. As a solo traveler I never felt anxious about anything as I was really taken care of. Vietnam has been my favorite solo travel so far.
