Full Itinerary

Day 1 Day 1: Hanoi arrival
Welcome & Pick up at the airport

Driver wait you at the airport. Transfer to hotel in city center and check-in.

After relaxing time, Our driver and tour guide will pick you up at your hotel, then transfer to Ho Chi Minh Complex, including the mausoleum of the nation's founder and leader. Here, large crowds gather to pay their respects to the man that they simply call Uncle Ho, as they silently file past his glass sarcophagus. The Presidential Palace and Uncle Ho's wooden stilt house can also be seen here. One of must-see places in the complex is One Pillar Pagoda dating back 11th century. From far view its shape looks like a huge lotus flower.

The next stop is the Temple of Literature - the first university in Vietnam, the site of Vietnam's oldest university and dedicated to one of the world's most famous scholars, Confucius. Inside the temple grounds, huge steles rest on the backs of even larger stone turtles (in Vietnam's culture, the turtle represents longevity). The stele recorded the names of the successful candidates who later became mandarins in the Emperor's court.

From here, we continue the walking tour around the Hanoi Old Quarter and Hoan Kiem Lake , the focal point of the city. This is not only a beautiful spot but also is the historical site of the legend of King Le Loi and Golden Turtle God.

The drivers were on time during the airport transfers. The other drivers and tour guide David were very friendly, accommodating and efficient during the day tours.

I just wish that we had been informed about the Water Puppet Show near the lake so we could've included it in our itinerary.
