About this activity
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, 2 Hung Vuong Ba Dinh Square, Hanoi 100000 Vietnam

We begin by joining the thousands of tourists and citizens who pay their respects to Vietnam’s most revered leader at the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Chua Tran Quoc, Thanh Nien, Hanoi 10000 Vietnam

Afterwards, we will cross a small causeway to the islet of Ho Tay (West Lake) to see the traditional architecture of the oldest Buddhist temple in Hanoi, the Trấn Quốc Pagoda. This picturesque structure dates back to more than 1,450 years ago; here we burn incense to send well-wishes to the gods and receive good luck in return.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Authentic Bat Trang, 62 Hang Hom Hoan Kiem, Hanoi 100000 Vietnam

At the Bat Trang Pottery Village, we continue our tour with sightseeing and shopping for crafted ceramics and artisan-made porcelain products.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Vietnam Museum of Ethnology, Nguyen Van Huyen Street Cau Giay, Hanoi 100000 Vietnam

At noon we’ll take a break for traditional Vietnamese lunch at a local restaurant.

Next up is a visit to the Museum of Ethnology, where we learn about the country’s diverse heritage through the displays featuring Vietnam’s 54 different ethnic groups.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Temple of Literature & National University, Quoc Tu Giam Street Dong Da District, Hanoi 100000 Vietnam

Another amazing attraction in our Hanoi Tour is the Temple of Literature, also known as the Temple of Confucius or the Quốc Tử Giám – Vietnam’s first National University. Feel a sense of celebration from the students who frequent the space… and erudition as you rest in this serene scene of lushly landscaped courtyards, with a large pond known as the “Well of Heavenly Clarity,” and stone statues with inscriptions that give us a glimpse into Vietnam’s history.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Lake of the Restored Sword (Hoan Kiem Lake), Hanoi 100000 Vietnam

While in Hanoi, we won’t miss the must-see Hoan Kiem Lake surrounding the Ngoc Son Temple, a pagoda peacefully tucked away from the frenetic motorcycle-filled city streets.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Hoi An Water Puppet Show, 548 Hai Ba Trung St Hoi An Theatre, Hoi An Vietnam

Finally we’ll catch Asian artistry at the Water Puppet Show featuring lacquered wooden puppets dancing on the surface of a pool, to the accompaniment of live orchestra music acting out Vietnamese folklore, legend, and national history.
