What to explore at Hanoi Old quarter walking tour?

Itinerary:

09.00AM or 02.00PM: 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 take your time to wander along the old streets  and you surely gain many exciting experience.

Tip for you – Names of some streets with typical products: Bat Su (China Bowls), Cha Ca (roasted fish), Hang Bac (jewelries), Hang Dau (shoes & sandals), Hang Gai (silk), To Tich (mixed fruits), Hang Luoc (comb), Hang Duong (candies & dry apricot), Hang Buom (banboo product). In addition, 4 walking streets Hang Dao – Hang Ngang – Hang Duong – Dong Xuan which formed “Night  market” in the evening from Friiday to Sunday is also a nice place to explore. 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 Vietnams’ 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 (exclued), continue to Hoan Kiem Lake area where you can pay a visit Ngoc Son temple or enjoy a drink at Fany Ice Cream, Thuy Ta Ice Cream or some famous café shop/restaurants nearby.

Tour ends around 12.00 or 05.00PM.
