Here are some popular suggestions for Hanoi City Tour with one of our fascinating Hanoi private tour guides so that you can have an overall idea for customizing your trip.
Ho Chi Minh Complex
The place is a symbolic landmark of Hanoi that every tour guide highly recommends being included in a private tour. This historical place is imitated on Lenin’s mausoleum in Russia and built as a permanent resting place of Ho Chi Minh – Vietnam’s greatest leader. The mausoleum is not always packed with tourists so visitors can freely explore and admire the views.
Don’t forget to linger for a while to watch the “Changing of Guard”, which is an exciting activity that took place every day around the mausoleum. Next, head towards Ho Chi Minh Museum to listen to the life story of Vietnamese’s beloved father. The House on Stilts is also a not-to-miss destination to discover another rustic and straightforward side of President Ho Chi Minh.
A private tour guide is of great help when visiting historical destinations. You don’t have to worry about missing out the essential history highlights as your guide will always accompany you during the visit. In contrast, you may feel ignored when surrounded by a full group tour.
Temple of Literature
The next not-to-miss destination is the Temple of Literature – the first university of Vietnam. The temple is dedicated to Confucius, scholars, and sages, and has become a symbol of traditional Vietnam architecture and education. Especially during the examination period, this is a must-go place for students and their parents coming to wish for passing the exams with flying colours.
Tran Quoc Pagoda
It would be a great mistake not to include Tran Quoc Pagoda in a private tour around Hanoi. Located on a small peaceful island of West Lake, Tran Quoc Pagoda attracts a vast number of tourists as the holiest Buddhist place in Hanoi. The pagoda owns excellent value not only by its unique terrain but also by the history closely related to the nation. Most of the visitors when coming here are amazed by the tranquil space and poetic beauty of the pagoda and the West Lake. There is no coincidence that Tran Quoc Pagoda has received numerous praises from reputable foreign newspapers.
Hoa Lo Prison
This unique destination will let you travel back in time to those historical periods to understand more about the past leading to the future of Hanoi today. Hoa Lo Prison is the place that best describes the cruelty and hardship of the war at that time. The relic is not only clear evidence for a whole period of struggles against the colonial governments but also a symbol of the resilient spirit of Vietnamese patriotism.
Widely known under the name “the Hell on Earth”, the most feared prison in Southeast Asia, during the time of its operation, Hoa Lo Prison became a detention place of generations of Vietnamese soldiers and revolutionary activists. The architects designed the prison to torture and create forms of cruelty, the most typical of which is the guillotine.
Delicious and mouth-watering Hanoi cuisine
Feeling hungry during the tour? Don’t worry, food lovers! Hanoi has plenty of delicious food stalls to fill up your empty belly.
Enjoy a cup of rich egg coffee to start a new day – a “speciality” beverage of Hanoians in a rustic coffee shop. The drink “conquers” tourists right at the first touch of lips with its rich flavour of coffee and egg yolk. Everything blends harmoniously, creating an unforgettable taste that you can hardly find anywhere else.
Head straight to Bun Cha place for lunch, where the former President Barack Obama enjoyed his meal during his visit in Hanoi. Entering the shop and ordering a set of Bun Cha, you are likely to feel the impression creating by the rusticity and freshness in the way of presentation and flavour. Bun Cha is one of the most popular and symbolic dishes of Vietnam cuisine. With the green and fresh colour of herbs, flavorful broth, and greasy meatballs, who could say “No” to this temptation?
For dessert, don’t forget to stop by Trang Tien Ice cream, one of the most famous snacks of Hanoi. For years, this renowned ice-cream shop has rarely changed its flavours. There are three most favourite ice-cream tastes of Hanoians – nugget, green beans and vanilla. This snack is a handy “assistant” in cooling the temperature in hot summer day.
All of the above are carefully-selected suggestions for an enjoyable and exciting Hanoi private tours with our professional guides. If you desire to discover more, don’t hesitate to tell your guides and they will be happy to customize the trip to your preference.
