Get to know all the corners and specialties of the city like a real local.

This morning, you meet your guide and driver at 07:00am and head towards Hoan Kiem Lake. It is a cultural thing in Vietnam to wake up early and start the morning with some exercise. It is interesting to see how the local people, mostly women from varying age, start their routine. Be part of Vietnam and join the locals in their morning routine! After visiting the Ngoc Son Temple, in Hoan Kiem Lake, we will try Vietnam specialities, among them Vietnam’s local coffee: Cà phê sữa đá, ‘Egg coffee’ and the delicious ‘bánh mì’ –filled baguette sandwich! Later, we will get into Hanoi’s Old Quarter and you will start a walking tour where you will be able to witness the French architecture. To finish our morning, we will pay a visit to the Huu Tiep Lake, better known as ‘B-52 lake’, where US B-5 bomber wreckage can be seen. At noon, we will return to the Old Quarter. We will stop at a ‘Bún Chả’ restaurant, where you will try Hanoi’s specialty. After lunch, we will visit Hanoi’s Temple of Literature. Our last stop of the day will be in Hanoi railway tracks. It is particular for this city as the railway tracks are located meters away from doors of houses! We will finish at the well known Bia Hoi, where you will taste local draft beer; ending the day as a local!
