This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Old Quarter, Hanoi 100000 Vietnam
Located in the middle of Ha Noi, a rapidly developing city where changes take place every hour, Ha Noi Old Quarter with its old-styled narrow streets full of antique brick houses seems to nostalgically resist the flow of time while still actively trying to adapt to the dynamic atmosphere of the modern city.
Once a bustling area where merchants and artisans gathered to sell their products, Ha Noi Old Quarter consists of many small, meandering streets, each bears the name of the goods that was specifically traded there such as Hang Bac (Silver Product), Hang Ma (Paper Product), Hang Go (Wood Product), just to name a few.
Visiting this unique historical vestige comfortably lying around Hoan Kiem Lake, tourists get lost in a totally different world from the rest of the city and have the chance to explore the modest but energetic life of the local a hundred years ago, where there were no high-rise buildings, too much traffic or fancy stores; things will get a little bit smaller, as visitors may have used to those skyscrapers and shopping centers in other parts of the city, but not at all less lively and vigorous.
Duration: 3 hours 30 minutes
Pass By: Lake of the Restored Sword (Hoan Kiem Lake), Hanoi 100000 Vietnam
Hoan Kiem Lake, also known as Sword Lake (Lake of the Returned Sword), has a total area of 12 hectares with the north - south length of 700m and the east - west width of 200m. Hoan Kiem Lake is surrounded by streets in Hanoi Old Quarters including Le Thai To street and Dinh Tien Hoang street in the east, and Hang Khay street in the south.
Pass By: Dong Kinh Nghia Thuc Square, Intersection of streets: Le Thai Tong, Dinh Tien Hoang, Cau Go, Hang Dao and Hang Gai, Hanoi 100000 Vietnam
The next stop on the walking tour takes you to Dong Kinh Nghia Thuc Square, a busy and popular public square where festivities often take place. The square – known as the Tonkin Free School Movement Square – is named for a movement that helped ignite Communism in Vietnam. From here, you will step into Hanoi’s historic Old Quarter where the rest of the walking tour will reveal shops, charming alleys and delectable eats.
