    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.

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

    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
