Explore Hanoi Like a Local - Excursion

There are many ways of exploring Vietnam's capital city, however, there is no better way than doing it like a local. Walk around Hanoi's numerous lakes, historical pagodas, busy streets and colonial magnificent buildings. Try Tai Chi on an early Hanoian morning and end your day tasting the typical and authentic Bia Hoi. 

Day 1:    Hanoi City Tour / Explore Hanoi Like a Local
 
 

Meet your guide and driver and head towards Hoan Kiem Lake. It is a cultural thing in Vietnam to wake up very early (6am) and start the morning with some exercise. It is very interesting to see how the local people, mostly women from varying age, start their busy routine. Several groups of people can be found practicing tai chi and aerobics. Be part of Vietnam and join the locals in their morning routine! After having a Vietnamese Iced coffee -Caphe sua da-, you will start a walking tour where you will be able to witness the French architecture in different Vietnamese buildings. We will also visit some typical communal houses which have been restored by UNESCO. Next, we will head towards Quan Thanh Temple, a Taoist Temple dated from the 11th Century and ending with the impressive Tran Quoc Pagoda, a Buddhist pagoda located in a small island in the center of the West Lake. Vietnam is very well known for its food, so a stop to try some specialties is a must..After our super local lunch, we will visit the Temple of Literature, built in 1076. Vietnam’s first university was established within this temple to educate Vietnam's royalty, mandarins and members of the elite. The university functioned for 700 years and its gardens and well-preserved architecture offer a fascinating glimpse into Vietnam’s past. Our day will finish with evening beers at the typical and well known Bia Hoi, where you will taste local draft beer.

Hi, Welcome to Vietnam. My name is Thanh and I am your local travel expert.
Traveling has always been a part of my life. 
Personally I love being in Saigon, not only because I’m a Saigonese but also Saigon has a dynamic lifestyle and always gives a warm welcome. Moreover, I think Vietnamese food is the most important thing to keep everyone loving Vietnam as I do. You will be surprised by the way we cook and the taste.
I would love to welcome you to Vietnam and you will have your own incredible experience....
