Hanoi City sights & Red River Delta Tour on motorbike

Experience local’s life with Red River Delta
Not many living in the capital city know that the Red River is a place many people call home. The residents of Long Bien District's Phao village, a floating settlement on the banks of the Red River, lead a life of poverty in one of Vietnam's most developed metropolises.
Around 27 families living in Phao village in precarious circumstances. Rickety wooden houses are surrounded by a river but have no access to clean water for drinking or cooking. Generations of families live under one roof, parents struggle to send their children to school and necessities like medical care are simply not an option.
With nearly 2 hours exploring the area, you will get to discover a unbelievable peaceful life with daily activities of the residents here. You also get to eat bananas from the farm, spend some time with locals at their house, take pictures of the unspoiled villages. This is definitely a must-see destination in your trip to Hanoi.

    1. Café Trứng (Egg Coffee) at Café Giảng on Yen Phu St.
    Have you heard about Egg coffee? It sounds a bit weird but the taste is amazing. Egg coffee is also an unusual and unique type of coffee that you can’t find anywhere else outside of Vietnam. Even if you are not a coffee-lover, it is still worth trying this creative mixing of coffee by Vietnamese people. Also, you will have a lot of choices for drinks at Cafe Giang where we will introduce our tour and the schedule while you enjoy your drink.
    You will walk along Trang Tien street to enjoy ice-cream from the famous brand in Hanoi. We will then take you to the Hanoi Opera House-the oldest Opera House in the city with its architecture influenced by the French. Our tour guide will tell you about the history of this place while you explore the Opera House and the surrounding area.
    After a quick visit to Hanoi Opera House, we will continue the tour by crossing Chuong Duong Bridge. Unfortunately, we can’t stop on the bridge as it doesn’t allow any parking. However, you can sit on your motorbike and take a picture of the stunning view from the top of the bridge
