  • Hoàn Kiếm , Hoàn Kiếm, Hanoi, Vietnam

    Hoan Kiem Lake in Hanoi attracts tourists and locals looking to get away from the noise and frenetic pace of the city. Peaceful and quiet, the lake surrounds Ngoc Son Temple, a pagoda sitting in the centre on a small island. The temple attracts many visitors and was built in commemoration of the 13th century military leader Tran Hung Dao who was renowned for his bravery in the battle against the Yuan Dynasty. Homage is also paid to scholar Van Xuong and Confucian master Nguyen Van Sieu. The island on which the temple is built is known as Jade Island and is accessible by the iconic Huc Bridge or Rising Sun Bridge which is a charming scarlet-painted wooden bridge of classical Vietnamese design. The pagoda is also guarded by two towering posts decorated with Chinese writing. The lake and temple are probably the most famous places in Hanoi city in which to rest and enjoy the view and are a great place to sit back and watch the locals.

  • Đồng Xuân , Đồng Xuân, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, Vietnam

    Established in 1889, Dong Xuan Market is housed within a four-storey Soviet-style building on the northern edge of Hanoi Old Quarter. It’s also known as Hanoi’s largest indoor market, offering a wide range of goods such as fresh produce, souvenirs, accessories and clothing, as well as electronic and household appliances. Similar to most markets in Southeast Asia, Dong Xuan Market has a bustling wet market section on the ground floor, where locals shop for seafood, meat, and vegetables while the back section sells an array of pets (cats, dogs, and fish) and fresh flowers from all across Vietnam. If you’re looking to shop for souvenirs, head to the upper levels, where you can find numerous stalls selling tee shirts, fabrics, school uniforms, handbags, handicrafts, all of which are sold at wholesale prices.

  • Lotus Water Puppet Theater , 16 Lê Thái Tổ, Hàng Trống, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, Vietnam

    The world-famous Thang Long Water Puppet Theatre in Hanoi has its roots in an art form that dates back to the 11th century. The tradition of water puppet theatre stems from a time when rice paddy fields were flooded and villagers would make entertainment by standing in the waist-deep water with the puppets performing over the water. Using large rods to support the puppets it appeared as if they were moving across the water with the puppeteers hidden behind a screen.

    There were 15 people in our group which I felt was too many. The guide was quite personable but the tour seemed disorganised. The 1st course was Bahn Mi, this is the Vietnamese bread roll, it was very good. The next dish was chicken noodle soup, it was OK but I had better a better flavoured soup in a roadside street stall. The 3rd dish was meant to be a bbq pork rolled in rice paper. Unfortunately the restaurant providing this dish had run out of food and were having a family meal, so we did not have this dish. Next was tropical fruit in coconut milk, well I could get most of that fruit in any country so a bit of a fail. The final dish was egg coffee. The café that was meant to serve us was too busy so we went to another one nearby. We had had egg coffee at another place the previous day but this coffee was far superior and we wanted to go back there again. So 2 good dishes and 2 average dishes out of 5 with 1 no show. Still waiting for the group photo that was meant to be emailed to us.

    Not too bad. Mia was friendly, but could not seem to manage the pace or let it slow down enough for my mother in law a senior citizen to catch up. Some food was good, some was not, and the food we tried was not the same food listed in the Viator website, so they the tour company must have made some changes on their own. Mia was helpful though and got us a Grab car at the end to get back to the hotel. Overall ok, nothing to shout about I'd say.

    Once again a great tour. Michael our guide was very good and took us to some great restaurants where we tried their food in the streets. It was a bit sad that we had only arrived that day and were pretty tired and having trouble with the heat so finished early at our request which was great to be able to do on a small group tour. We had more food than we could cope with even finishing early. We even did some cooking ourselves. All in all a great way to see the city and meet the locals.

    Arrived in Hanoi and the Hanoi Street Food on Foot Tour was our first experience, and what a way to start! We met our tour guide Lisa and she proceeded with our first step of the tour and that is how to cross Hanoi streets weaving between cars and motor scooters. There were four of us and when we crossed the busy streets filled with scooters she yelled sticky rice and we all stuck together and crossed the maze of scooters. The highlight of our walking tour was the stop where we had buon cuon a dumpling type dish that I had never had. The second famous is Banh Mee - Best sandwich In town - Freshly-baked French baguette with pate, roasted pork or chicken, pickled veggies, cilantro, hot chilis, the whole thing. The places we stopped were very local and delicious. Definitely lots of delicious food. We met wonderful people on the tour and stopped and had beer with everyone afterwards. What a great experience with people from all over the world. I definitely recommend this company and especially Vi our tour guide. She was fun, so nice, and had such an upbeat attitude. Good job Lisa!!!!!!
