Tourist Places In Hanoi

Hanoi destination is the capital city of the southeast Asian country Vietnam, which is a mesh of the cultures of three different countries – namely French, Russian, and Chinese – due to its vast history. But little do people know that in addition to being a historically and politically relevant city, one can find a lot of tourist attractions in Hanoi Vietnam. Its location in a delta region (the Red River delta) and its proximity to other more popular southeast Asian tourist spots of Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia make it an evolving spot.  

Here are the top 5 Hanoi points of interest to visit:

Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum  

Ho Chi Minh was an extremely important figure in Vietnam’s history as he was the leading revolutionary during the Vietnam War. He is a highly venerated figure in Vietnam, and his body is preserved at the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum so that members of the common public can come and pay their respects to him. Ho Chi Minh Museum is one of the major places to visit in Hanoi. For a history buff, this is a lovely place. However, it must be mentioned that since he is such an important figure in the country, there are a set of rules and regulations to be adhered to while visiting the mausoleum, else the person stands the risk of getting a punishment. To avoid that embarrassment, one must follow the stipulated dress code and conduct oneself according to the military instructions imparted. Be silent and do not cut queues.

Hoàn Kiem Lake

In English, the name of the lake may be translated as “Lake of the Returning Sword”. It is a historically important lake and is one of the most picturesque locations for sightseeing in the city of Hanoi. A main attraction of the lake used to be the sighting of softshell turtles in it. However, their numbers have drastically decreased of late. Temples (Temple of the Jade Mountain), bridges (The Huc Bridge) and islands (Jade Island) can be found adjoined to the lake, and they are also tourist attractions in Hanoi. The best time to visit the lake is considered to be dusk because the whole lake is lit up and it makes for some stunning photographs.

Temple of Literature

The Temple of Literature is a temple dedicated to the famous philosopher Confucius. Vietnam is rife with temples dedicated to Confucius and his associated sages and disciples, but The Temple of Literature is the best and most famous among them. The temple is also featured on the back of the official 100,000 Vietnamese (currency note). Since the temple is built as a tribute to Confucius, its layout is similar to his birthplace, that is, the temple at Qufu, Shandong. While this is one of the major Hanoi points of interest, it is open 24/7. Therefore, tourists can visit it anytime they please.

Imperial Citadel of Thang Long

The Imperial Citadel of Thang Long is also known as the Hanoi Citadel. It was built during the time of the Lý Dynasty and was expanded by subsequent dynasties. It is a vast complex which gives us a look at the royal architectural style of the dynasties of that period. Much of it is in ruin now due to historical conquests and normal wear and tear over the centuries, but the citadel is still worth visiting once. The UNESCO declared it as a World Heritage Site in 2010. One thing to keep in mind while visiting this Hanoi Vietnam attraction is that the timings are very rigid and strict. It stays open in two shifts: the first from 8-11:30 AM and the second from 1:30-5 PM.

One Pillar Pagoda

Hanoi sightseeing tour is incomplete without visiting a Buddhist site, and the One Pillar Pagoda is the perfect site to visit. The pillar on which the temple is constructed is breathtaking. It is built on a single wood pillar which is 1.25m in diameter. The temple has been designed to resemble a lotus blossom, which is considered a symbol of purity in Buddhism because a lotus is inherently so pure that it manages to blossom even in a muddy pond. It was built by Ly Thai Tong who got it made because he was grateful for having a son. It has been renovated a couple of times due to being attacked by other emperors.

    • Trip to Vietnam

      Had a good trip overall but had some issues: 1) Our flight booking done by Traveltriangle for BOM BKK sector, seats blocked were right infront of washroom and so was not total reclining and full of disturbances. For BKK BOM sector flight seats blocked all the way at the back thereby taking us time to board and deboard. If we had not blocked seats we may have for better seats. We had not asked for Hindu meals on flight but was served on all sectors baring BOM BKK sector as we had asked them to cancel. The flight from Hanoi to Siem Rep was late by more than 2 hours and we spend half day at airport. That flight ( Vietjet) has a reputation of being late and we repented being booked on it as whole day was wasted and we ended up reaching hotel by 11 pm. 2) Hotel experience was fairly good. At Hanoi the room allocated with triple bed was small and lacking proper seating arrangement. Overall staff very curious and breakfast okay although lacking variety for Veg and non pork beef eaters. Hotel at Siem Rep (Ankor Holiday Hotel) was not at all as expected. Although supposedly four star it lacked proper attitude of staff and general hygiene and cockroaches running all around room and washroom. On first day air conditioning not working on one room and staff refused to give us another room. Had to settle with a fan.in room instead. They were not accommodating at all. 3) Guides in both countries were knowledgeable and understanding. They took good care of us and our food. 4) We got email / call on last day regarding our insurance option for trip. If they had contacted us earlier we would not have to run around. We got all documents just before we left for airport which was very rushed. 5) Our advisor Karan took lot of time to sort out payment issues with overseas travel agent and we had to continuously follow up to make sure our trip would not get cancelled inspite of making payments on time. Our time in Hanoi which included the overnight Boat trip was definitely the best.moments. Siem Rep was a disappointment due to rushed up itenarary.

      I had booked Bamboo Hat Tour from Travel Triangle for Vietnam and Cambodia. My experience was excellent during visit of both the countries. HaLong Bey experience was awesome and tour was well organized. Hotel stay at Tu Linh Palace was good though breakfast option was not so much and on demand, but rest all amenities was good. Tour guide was friendly and have good knowledge of history, well behaved etc. People of both the places were so good , simple and peace loving. Hotel stay in Mother Home Inn Cambodia was excellent. Lot's of breakfast options available in hotel. Lot's of good street food and restaurants available nearby . Day tour to Angkor Watt was very well organized and tour guide was well knowledgeable and supporting. He helped in clicking lot's of pic of us during the photography . Overall experience with Bamboo Hat is excellent and great thanks to Sophie for organizing the itinerary so brilliantly. I can say this because i had planned for very short duration for both the places and had no scope of any slippage in plan. But Sophie has organized this very accurately and made my plan as success. Thanks Sophie and Bamboo Hat !!!

      The Asia authentic travel company really served us wonderful. We had everything in place and didn't have to struggle from the moment of recieving us from the airport to dropping us back to the airport. The vehicles were so comfortable and the group tour was not so crowded and we felt that the choice we made of choosing group tour over personal is correct. We got to meet new people of different countries with different languages and cultures.

    It takes around 5 days to see the best things of Hanoi on a surface level, including a day trip to Halong Bay.

    Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, Bach Ma Temple, Hoan Kiem Lake, Temple of Literature, Imperial Citadel and one pillar pagoda are some of the best things to see in Hanoi.

     

    Flying to Noi Bai Airport in Hanoi is the easiest way to reach Hanoi. From outside the country, one can take buses from Laos or Cambodia or trains from China.

     

     

    Vietnamese Dong is the currency for the entire country and thus in Hanoi too.

    Hanoi is located in the northern temperate zone, the springs and autumns are perfect for a visit. Thus, September to November and March to April are the best time to visit Hanoi.
