Day 1 & 2

Hanoi

Welcome to Vietnam! Your driver and guide welcome you at the airport and take you to your hotel. The rest of the day at leisure. Tomorrow, on day 2, the Ngoc Son Temple located in the middle of Hoan Kiem Lake is on your programme. But before you get into your car, you will witness the daily tai chi and aerobics morning exercise associated with this culture. During your short morning walk through the Old Quarters of Hanoi you can taste a typical cup of Vietnamese ice coffee and a baguette style sandwich at a street stall. The area’s main attractions include the Saint Joseph Cathedral in French Gothic style and the Hoa Lo prison, where both Vietnamese, French and American prisoner of war were held captive. Then, you continue to Lake B-52, named after a U.S. bomber wreck.

After a local lunch, you pop in at the Temple of Literature from 1706, the birthplace of Hanoi's University and the spot where Vietnam's royal family, mandarins and elite were educated. The site and gardens offer a magnificent insight into Hanoi’s glorious past. You walk on the picture-perfect railroad tracks just yards away from the houses.
