Red Bridge, Hoan Kiem Lake
Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum
Centred round attractive Hoan Kiem Lake, the capital of Vietnam is a complete contrast to its worldlier southern counterpart.
Where Saigon is all hustle and bustle, Hanoi is more laid back, whilst Saigon is very western looking, Hanoi is more conservative and traditional.
Hanoi's Old Quarter is compelling with streets full of traditional vendors and artisans, and the prevailing French influence lends Hanoi a unique atmosphere.
An overnight trip to stunning Halong Bay is a must for anyone visiting Hanoi.

Stop at Ngoc Son Temple. This bustling area of narrow streets and alleys is home to literally thousands of small businesses and shopkeepers. It's a great place to explore with plenty of photo opportunities all around.
Continue to the Temple of Literature. In 1076 Vietnam's first university was established within a temple to educate Vietnam's royalty, mandarins and members of the elite.
The university functioned for an incredible 700 years and its gardens and well-preserved architecture offer a fascinating glimpse into Vietnam’s past.
Finish with a visit to Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum, which is viewed from the outside. Also see Ho Chi Minh’s stilt house, where he lived from 1958 to 1969. Visit the small but iconic One Pillar Pagoda before heading back to your hotel.
