Our tour guide will welcome you at the hotel then start the walking tour to discover Hanoi’s Old Quarter which is famous with “36 guild streets” in the past time.

Nowaday, the villages were turned to streets and many of them didn’t feature the business as it names anymore. But it’s worth your time to wander along the old streets  and you surely gain many exciting experience. Despite the damages that Vietnam War left in Hanoi, the Old Quarter still retained much of the original traits that interests tourists, especially those with architectural passion. These houses are neither tall buildings as people normally see in cities nor stilt houses on lines of poles, which were popular in Vietnam’s mountainous regions these days. They are also called “tubular houses” which are short and narrow but have great length.

After walking around and enjoy some local specialties (excluded), continue to Hoan Kiem Lake area where you can pay a visit Ngoc Son temple or enjoy a drink at Trang Tien Ice Cream, Thuy Ta Ice Cream or some famous café shop/restaurants nearby.

We have the walking street and “Night market” at the weekend where no vehicles are allowed, so you can enjoy walking and going shopping without being afraid of the traffic.

Tour ends around 12:00 PM (for the morning tour) or 5:00 PM (for the afternoon tour).
