Hanoi from local perspective

Day 1 Hanoi from local perspective

Meals: not any | Accommodation: not any

You may choose to do this tour either from 8.00 to 12.00 or from 13.30 to 17.30

Your guide meets you at your hotel. We start by a gentle walk across the old quarter to its biggest covered market. We take the time to walk around the bustling market, where about anything and everything can be bought.

Exit the bazaar and hop on small electric carts for a leisure ride around to the boundaries of central Hoan Kiem district. We start there a short walk along the railway and you'll see how closed to the rail it is possible to live, simply impressive. We stop there, right next to the rail, in a small restaurant for a refreshing drink or a sip or rice wine if you'd like to. We then keep walking a short distance to the temple of literature. Our half day journey ends as the guide shows you this historical gem of architecture.
