Best Sightseeing Tours in Hanoi

Being the capital of Vietnam, it is also a place for the best sightseeing tours in Hanoi. One of the oldest cities in the country, it oozes with culture and ethnicity in every nook and corner. A breezy trip to Vietnam can be well spent in Hanoi. People who spend their vacation by a sightseeing walking tour to Hue’s old war-ravaged citadel, walking up to the mountains in Sapa, or through caves in Ninh Binh, begin to mule over to stay for a couple of more days. The quaint old charm attached to the city comes from its architectural mix. Hanoi is influenced by South East Asian and French architecture that features a mixture of different architectures which makes it unique and wistful. Hanoi is the place where modern meets the classic. While paying a visit to the Old Quarter of Hanoi and Hoan Kiem Lake, which dwells in the chaotic streets with numerous cafes and bustling crowds, stay away from hawkers.

 

Besides that the Lotte Towers, offers a view of the city that is impeccable. Sights like One Pillar Pagoda and the Ho Chi Minh mausoleum have stories behind their construction; do not miss to listen to some. The galleries in the narrow lanes are beautified with artwork and graffiti. The food is taken very seriously in Hanoi as they majorly serve the French and Vietnamese flavors in most of the restaurants and cafes. The Ta Hien and Luong Ngoc Quyen streets of the Old Quarter are some of the attractions that are best visited for a sightseeing tour in Hanoi at night. The image and memories of Hanoi are sure to last you a lifetime.
