Hanoi and its surroundings – 1 day tour
Between tradition and modernity, Hanoi will charm you!
Located in the Red River Delta, the city of Hanoi is the second most populous in the country after Ho Chi Minh City. It is primarily the political, administrative, and historical capital of Vietnam. In 2010, Vietnam celebrated the 1,000 years of this city, founded by King Ly Thai To in 1010. Since that date, Hanoi has been mostly chosen by successive powers as the capital of Vietnam, except for the imperial period when the city of Hue was favored by the Nguyen dynasty.
Hanoi, therefore, has a very long history, and its marks can be found in many places in the city: Tran Quoc Pagoda, the oldest in the city, the Temple of Literature, a symbol of Confucian education, the Long Bien Bridge, which echoes the French colonial period, and the Old Quarter with its 36 guilds, the city’s commercial hub for centuries.
Here are some day trip suggestions that will allow you to discover the Vietnamese capital and its surroundings.
