Things to do in Hanoi
Hanoi is the capital and second largest city in Vietnam. This city that mixes both East and West is where you’ll find stunning architecture, natural beauty, exotic food, exciting festivals, and bustling markets. Foodies, culture vultures, history buffs, and all other types of travellers always find something to love in Hanoi.
Visit the city’s temples first to take in Hanoi’s culture. You’ll be in awe of the fascinating, and equally gorgeous, Temple of Literature. Spend a lovely arvo strolling through Ngoc Son Temple. Be entertained at the Thang Long Water Puppet Theatre. And don’t forget to stop by the Bach Ma Temple, which is said to be Hanoi’s oldest temple.
From the heavens to history, bring your camera and soles and get your fill of Hanoi’s culture at Ho Chi Minh Museum, Museum of Ethnology, National Museum of Vietnamese History, the iconic One-Pillar Pagoda, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site at Hanoi Citadel. The Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is also worth your time, but they have strict rules for visitors like no wearing of short skirts and no picture taking inside.
Do you want to see the hustle and bustle of Hanoi next? Spend your Vietnamese Dong in the city’s shopping strips next. Go bargain hunting at Cho Hom and Hang Dau Street. Take a taxi to the Old Quarter and Hoan Kiem Lake shopping districts for the best souvenirs and gifts. And then shop until you drop until the evening at the Hanoi Weekend Night Market.
