A popular place of respite for both locals and visitors alike, Hoan Kiem Lake with the 18th century Ngoc Son Temple on Jade Island is a green and shady respite from the surrounding mayhem of the Old Quarter. The temple is accessed by a short bridge known as the Rising Sun Bridge, and was built in commemoration of the 13th century military leader Tran Huang Dao.
Insider’s Tip: The lake can get busy with joggers in the early morning and at sunset, but during the day elderly locals can be seen practising Tai Chi.
Originally built as a centre of learning to the Chinese sage and scholar Confucius, the Temple of Literature has seen royalty walk its ancient corridors since originally beginning as a university in 1070. With landscaped gardens, pagodas, lakes, and courtyards, the buildings are a remarkedly well preserved example of traditional-style Vietnamese architecture.
The buildings have been added to during the Ly and Tran dynasties is now considered one of the most important monuments in the city.
The public square to the south of Ho Tay is a fantastic blend of the old and the new in this vibrant city. Located on the western outskirts is the Mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh, the leader who read the Declaration of Independence in the nearby square in September 1945 and formed the current Socialist Republic of Vietnam.
The nearby Ho Chi Minh Museum commemorates his life further, with photos and documents relating to the schism of the French occupancy and the foundation of the communist government.
To the east of Ba Dinh Square lies the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long, a UNESCO World Heritage Site of significant historic and cultural importance. This site marks the centre for the political and militant power of the country for over 1300 years, with foundations of previous palaces, roads, and features found in excavations done in 2004.
Insider’s Tip: All the attractions around Ba Dinh Square are closed on Mondays, as is the case with many of Hanoi’s sights. Also, please note that photography is strictly forbidden in both Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum and Museum.
Dating back to the 11th century, the tradition of puppets dancing on water is a unique and entertaining experience that is particular to the city. Originally as a way to entertain each other when the rice fields were flooded, the art is now a fascinating way of telling traditional legends and historical tales from the theatre near Hoan Kiem Lake.
An absolute must on any holiday to Hanoi, the Old Quarter and nearby French Quarter deliver the quintessential Vietnam experience. Walking the bustling streets is the only way to explore them and, be warned, you will get lost! But that’s sometimes the best way to find new things!
Filled with vendors of everything from fashion to household goods, you will notice that each street has a specialty all their own. Interspersed between the chaotic stalls and shops, street food vendors and fruit traders wind along the cramped streets between the colonial architecture, offering their wares to passers and adding to the atmosphere.
The French Quarter to the south of Hoan Kiem Lake is remarkable for the influence the French had on this city while occupying the country. Buildings such as the Hanoi Opera House with its columned entrance, and the surrounding tree-lined streets, give the impression of other French influenced cities such as New Orleans, and are fantastic to walk amongst while exploring.
Insider’s Tip: With so much to see and a very real chance of missing highlights in the narrow streets, a walking tour of the Old Quarter is highly recommended. Try and include at least one or two street foods on your tour to get the real flavour of Hanoi!
Situated on the border of the Old and French Quarters, and opposite the Opera House, the Sofitel Legend Metropole is the perfect location for your upcoming business function.
Located to the north of the city centre at West Lake (Ho Tay), the Intercontinental West Lake is the perfect escape from the noise and chaos of Hanoi’s streets while still being close to all attractions.
The two main day trips out of Hanoi are to the south or the east. The town of Hoa Lu to the south of Hanoi was originally the capital of Vietnam in the 10th and 11th centuries and still contains excellent palaces, shines and temples. To the east is Halong Bay, the UNESCO World Heritage Site set off the coast. With towering forested islands with limestone cliffs and caves, cruises through the bay are a must, and will provide a once in a lifetime experience, and albums of photos to go along with them!
Vietnam Airlines fly direct from London to Hanoi, but most chose to fly through major cities such as Hong Kong or Bangkok and create multi-city holidays on their tailor-made itinerary. Other options in South East Asia also include Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, or do the north-to south route of coastal Vietnam and visit Ho Chi Minh City.
