Discover Hanoi

Hanoi, the mere mention of the Vietnam's capital city exudes an air of wanderlust and self discovery. Between the rich blend of Chinese and Western cross-historical heritage and nature's most serene spots, Hanoi embodies a rare find of unparalleled cultural treasures undisturbed by the passing of time, to be explored. At first sight, Hanoi is characterised by its busy streets of scooters fleet, local ladies in conical straw hats and French-style architectural built.

 

To get the best sightseeings in Hanoi, hitch a ride on a motorbike taxi or by foot into the neighborhoods where one is often so different than the other. Whether it is to savour into Vietnamese' mouth-watering street foods amongst the bustling streets of soulful temples, old gates, and traditional shops in Hoan Kiem, minger among expats in a western-feeling enclave of Tay Ho, or enjoy the sunset with a good cup of coffee and a book beside the azure lake of Truc Bach, Hanoi is where happiness, peaceful travel and authenticity prevails at its best.

 

Where to go in Hanoi

Van Mieu, Temple of Literature : A walk to remember; The entrance gate and gateways of Temple of Literature unfolds a spacious manicured garden and carries a tranquil atmosphere for olden days scholars to relax in. Established in 1070 and later used as Vietnam's first university, part of what makes a visit to this site exciting also lies in its duality. One minute you find yourself marvelling at turtle rocks engraved with names of exceptional graduates traced back to the Le Dynasty in 1484 at Well of Heavenly Clarity, and the next minute, you're admiring artefacts of near-perfect calligraphy by students and fragile writing apparatus in a small museum lit by sunlights from Chinese windows with breathtaking views of shrines dedicated to emperors and reputable philosophers.

 

Hoan Kiem Lake : Experience the spiritual harmony of different religions coexisting around the "Lake of the Returned Sword", a name derived from a tale of a magical sword returned to the giant Golden Turtle God by Emperor Le Loi. Stroll along the banks of the majestic lake and feast upon mesmerizing sight of groomed Parisian gardens brought to live by animal topiaries surrounded with a field of blooming flowers, benches and cafes. Cross the red Huc Bridge to arrive Ngoc Son Pagoda, a temple to honor the legendary giant tortoise and situated within close vicinity is the Thang Long Water Puppet Theatre featuring highly classic Vietnamese water puppet show. Slightly further ahead lies the ancient clock tower, Hoa Phong Tower and the French Quarter.

 

Imperial Citadel of Thang Long: Unbestowed to most, the citadel site signifies great historical importance to Vietnam housing the Emperor's Palace in the Forbidden City, religious sites and military base. The citadel is listed into UNESCO World Heritage in 2010 and was opened to public to mark Hanoi's 1,000th year of independence. Be it to travel back time to the Ly So Dynasty at a glass-covered archaeological dig, track the life of a war soldier in an underground bunker built equipped with double-layered steel door, toxin filter and anti-magnetic interference system, or discover newly found relics at 18 Hoang Dieu, the largest excavation in Vietnam, the citadel has so much to offer.
