Welcome to Hanoi!

Vietnam’s capital races to make up for time lost to the ravages of war and a government that as recently as the 1990s kept the outside world at bay. Its streets surge with scooters vying for right of way amid the din of constantly blaring horns, and all around layers of history reveal periods of French and Chinese occupation – offering a glimpse into the resilience of ambitious, proud Hanoians.

  • Today, Hanoi is a rapidly developing city, but one that has kept its striking colonial embellishments. Indeed, it’s ironic that this capital city of fiercely independent people, who have battled for generations against foreign invaders, possesses a decidedly European air. Hanoians may brag about their beautiful city while eating baguette sandwiches and sipping café au lait, but they’re reluctant to admit that much of what makes it so is a legacy of the French. The colonial architecture, together with an abundance of trees and lakes, gives Hanoi an unmistakably romantic air, unusual for an Asian city. Since the late 1990s, with the help of Korean and Taiwanese investors, the city has transformed itself from a rather sleepy backwater into a bustling metropolis. Luxurious shopping malls and apartment complexes have sprung up beside 200-year-old temples, and each day, new restaurants, cafés and shops open along the city’s busy avenues. Despite, or because of, the rapid progress, Hanoians are passionate about protecting their ancient traditions and culture, and a number of preservation works have been announced to protect important historic sites.

  • At 08:30 A.M, our waiting guide and driver will welcome you at your hotel and transfer to our meeting point for cyclo ride.

    Start with Saint Joseph Cathedral, erected by the French in 1886 on a former pagoda site. A surprisingly Gothic sight in the freewheeling atmosphere of the Hanoi Old Quarter, today it is the city’s main Catholic Church and holds services every day.

    You then ride to Sword Lake & Ngoc Son Temple, and the lively Old Quarter of Hanoi, a must see place to experience Hanoi, where you will find shopping and cultural/historical sites all wrapped into one.

    Slowly ride along Quan Thanh Street and to Thanh Nien Road. Slithering between two of many lakes in Hanoi, West lake and Truc Bach, Thanh Nien Road is perhaps the most beautiful stretch of driveway in the city.

    Tran Quoc Pagoda is your next visit. Considered as the oldest pagoda in the city, this originally constructed in the sixth century has harmonious architecture taking advantage of the watery landscape, the pagoda is a picturesque attraction.

    Tour end around 12:30 at noon.

    End of services at your Hotel.
