1. Café Trứng (Egg Coffee) at Café Giảng on Yen Phu St.
Have you ever 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.
We then meet the group, talking about the night’s itinerary and destinations while enjoying beverages, no need for holding on to your hats yet, we’ll start the night off informative and slow!

2. 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.
We will pay a visit Thanh Nien St, which situates right between Truc Bach Lake and West Lake and pay our respect to the late Mr. John Mccain, whose monument was erected right on this street.

3. 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.

4. 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.

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. Next stop, food town!
Coming up next, we will have some Pho or Bun Cha/ Vietnamese Bread, you decide which one sounds best to you, but frankly, they’re all so good!
You are now walking on the Street Food Paradise in the middle of the Old Quarter. We will fill you in with the best snacks in towns, such as Pillow cake (or Vietnamese crispy dumplings), Shrimp cake and a lot more… Let’s eat like a Hanoian.

7. 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 time of the day, you will have the chance to witness the daily lowering of the Flag ceremony. This is a sacred rite for which many domestic and foreign tourists, even Hanoi people wait. Activities at Ba Dinh Square are stopped when loudspeakers begin announcing to prepare to have the flag-lowering ceremony. The flag will be lowered by an army consisting of 34 soldiers marched from the right side of the mausoleum in background song “Bác vẫn cùng chúng cháu hành quân”.
