Our Favourite Activities In Hanoi
The Imperial Citadel of Thang Long – The citadel is a beautiful sight and it take two to three hours to visit. The place is soaked with interesting history and it was a lovely sunny afternoon spent outdoors.
Wander In Hanoi’s French Quarter – Hanoi’s French Quarter hosts most of the city’s foreign embassies, government buildings and affluent residential neighbourhoods. The quarter beautiful architecture definitely worth to wander around and you’ll also find upscale restaurants in the area.
Take pictures of Hanoi’s Train Street – Train street is one of the most instagrammable spots in Hanoi!
Walk around Hoàn Kiếm Lake at night – The lake looks magical when the lights are switched on at night.
Take a Day trip to Ha Long Bay – Going to Ha Long Bay isn’t the cheapest activity to do in Vietnam, but it’s just too amazing to be missed. There are plenty of options at different costs to choose from. We payed £160 ($195) per person for a private 6-hour trip with 2-hour return transfer from our hotel in Hanoi which isn’t bad at all. It was really difficult to pick a tour as you are literally facing hundreds of options. We picked a day tour with Vega Travel and had a perfect day trip.
