1. Café Trứng (Egg Coffee) at Café Giảng on Yen Phu St.
Have you heard about Egg coffee? It sounds a bit weird but the taste is amazing. Even if you are not a coffee-lover, it is still worth trying this creative mixing of coffee by Vietnamese people.
Sound good? While you enjoy your drink, we will talk about the day’s itinerary and destinations.

2. Long Bien Bridge/ Chuong Duong Bridge
Long Bien Bridge was the longest bridge in Asia when it was built from 1899 to 1902.
Known as the oldest bridge in Hanoi that is still living and sharing daily life with Hanoians silently. At this stop, while you can take some time to enjoy the view and take pictures, our tour guide will also introduce the history of the bridge as well as details about the life of locals from 2 sides of it.
After that, we will pass through the famous Chuong Duong Bridge – the four-lane, steel span bridge’s claim to fame is that it was the first sizeable bridge designed and built by Vietnamese workers, with no international assistance.

3. Nha Hat Lon (Hanoi Opera House)
Hanoi Opera House is a project built by the French government in the early years of the 20th century. While you’re enjoying the very famous Trang Tien’s Ice cream, we’ll tell you all about its unique structure with outstanding values in terms of history, culture, architecture, and art.

4. Ho Guom (Hoàn Kiếm Lake)
Lying in the center of Hanoi‘s historic district, Hoan Kiem Lake is a lovely, peaceful place with a fascinating history. In 1428, legend has it that Emperor Le Loi obtained a magical sword from the Dragon King to fight against Chinese oppressors. The sword, as you may have guessed, came from Hoan Kiem lake.
At this stop, we will have a chance to see “Ly Thai To Monument”. This is a cultural and architectural work that aims to honor King Ly Thai To (974 – 1028). He is the first king who found Capital Citadel of Thang Long (Hanoi today).

5. Nha Tho Lon (St. Joseph’s Cathedral)
The next stop, Saint Joseph Cathedral, located at 40 Nha Chung street, Hanoi, is a Roman Catholic cathedral with a neo-gothic style, which was built about 120 years ago.
Construction began in 1886, with the architectural style described as resembling Notre Dame de Paris. The church was one of the first structures built by the French colonial government in Indochina when it opened in December 1886.

6. Hoa Lo Prison
Trust me! You are not going to believe what you are about to see.
Hỏa Lò Prison was a prison used by the French colonists in French Indochina for political prisoners, and later by North Vietnam for U.S. prisoners of war during the Vietnam War. The French called it Maison Central, a generic name for a colonial prison. Whatever its name, the notorious prison housed a century of torture within its walls.

7. Ho Tay (West Lake)
West Lake is known as Hanoi’s largest freshwater lake. It’s a huge body of water – it has a circumference of 17km – and there are plenty of historic places of interest, five-star hotels, stylish restaurants, cafes, and nightlife venues that are worth exploring along the shoreline.
West Lake is bordered by several significant pagodas. Vietnam’s oldest pagoda, Tran Quoc pagoda, was built in the 6th century and is located on an island in the middle of the West Lake.
On this tour, Tran Quoc Pagoda is one of the places that cannot be missed.

8. Huu Tiep Lake and The B52
We will then have a quick visit to the B52 plane crash site. This is a remarkable victory of Vietnam soldiers during the Vietnam war. You will also get to visit a local market nearby to see daily activities of the Hanoians.

9. Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum
Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is the final resting place of Ho Chi Minh, the most iconic and popular leader of Vietnam, known to his people as ‘Uncle Ho’. His body is preserved here in a glass case at the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum in central Hanoi.
At this stop, while you can take some time to see the attraction from outside and take pictures, our tour guide will fill you in with more stories about our Uncle Ho & the historical information.

Note: Please keep in mind that we do not go inside the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum on “Hanoi City sights and street food” tour. This attraction requires a lot of time to fully appreciate so we recommend that you visit them on your own so that we can make the most of the time you have with us.

10. Lunch at Old Street
Feeling hungry? Inclusive of course, we’ll circle back to the Old Streets and fill our belly with “duh-li-cious” local cuisines.
