SIGHTSEEING / TOUR OPTIONS

 

Vietnam Museum of Ethnology

The Vietnam Museum of Ethnology under the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences is in the system of Vietnamese national museums. The Vietnam Museum of Ethnology has many different functions such as research, collection, preservation, and restoration of objects and materials of ethnic peoples; organizing exhibitions, performances, and other forms of activities to introduce cultures of ethnic groups in Vietnam as well as in other countries.

 

 

Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum

Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum in Ba Dinh Square is one of the most visited attractions in Hanoi. It is the place Ho Chi Minh, the most iconic and popular leader of Vietnam, known to his people as ‘Uncle Ho’ spent his last days of his life. Within the complex is the Ho Chi Minh museum, where Ho Chi Minh’s personal belongings and historical exhibits related to Vietnam War are displayed. 

 

 

West Lake

Tran Quoc Pagoda, set on an islet within West Lake, is the oldest of its kind in Hanoi, dating back to the 6th century during the reign of Emperor Ly Nam De Dynasty (544 - 548). The Buddhist shrine has undergone several changes throughout the years, particularly its renaming from An Quoc to Tran Quoc (protecting the country) by Emperor Le Huy Tong in the 17th century.

 

 

Sword Lake

Hoan Kiem Lake or Sword 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 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.

 

 

The Temple of Literature

The Temple of Literature was built as a university in 1070 dedicated to Confucius, scholars and sages; the building is extremely well preserved and is a superb example of traditional-style Vietnamese architecture. This ancient site consists of a lake of literature, the Well of Heavenly Clarity, turtle steles, pavilions, courtyards and passageways that were once used by royalty. Visiting the Temple of Literature you will discover historic buildings from the Ly and Tran dynasties in a revered place that has seen thousands of doctors’ graduate in what has now become a memorial to education and literature. Originally the university only accepted aristocrats, the elite and royal family members as students before eventually opening its doors to brighter ‘commoners’. Successful graduates had their names engraved on a stone stele which can be found on top of the stone turtles.

 

 

Thang Long Water Puppet Theater

This tradition is unique to North Vietnam but has recently found fame on stages all over the world; so it’s a rare treat to see the puppets perform in their original location at the Thang Long Water Puppet Theatre. Performances are accompanied by a Vietnamese orchestra playing traditional music using drums, wooden bells, horns, bamboo flutes and cymbals. There are also authentic Vietnamese operatic songs telling the story that is being acted out by the puppets. Most of the shows recount Vietnamese folk tales and legends with topics including the celebration of the rice harvest depicted in a humorous fashion.

 

 

Duong Lam Ancient Village

With about 956 traditional houses of which the oldest one is 300 years old, Duong Lam village now still preserves most of the basic characteristics of a traditional Vietnam’s village with port village, old tall trees, large courtyard, ancient temples, well, water fields together with bones of fish shaped roads. Among many features still kept in Duong Lam ancient village now, the most outstanding is the old village gate in Mong Phu village. On the way, depending on your schedule, you can make a stop at Van Phuc silk village, the cradle of best silk in Vietnam once, where you can know more about the process of silk making as well as do some shopping finest silk products in Van Phuc village; or Mia Pagoda, which was constructed in the 15th century, where you can admire 287 statues of different sizes before going back to Hanoi.
