What to Expect
Enjoy a full day exploring the best that Vietnam's capital has to offer. First of all, visit Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum and Museum, and learn about this great figure in Vietnam's history. Close to the mausoleum is the One Pillar Pagoda, founded by King Ly Thai To in 1049 – a structure which has become an important symbol for the people of Hanoi.

The tour then continues to the Taoist Quan Thanh Temple, which dates from the Ly Dynasty, and the Buddhist Tran Quoc Pagoda on the West Lake, one of the oldest pagodas in Vietnam. On selected days (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) you will have an opportunity to see the Bat Trang pottery village, before stopping for lunch at a local restaurant.

In the afternoon, a visit to the Ethnology Museum is possible (only on Sundays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays), before heading to the Temple of Literature and Quoc Tu Giam. You'll also see Vietnam's first university, dating from 1070. The tour will take you past Hoan Kiem Lake and the beautiful Ngoc Son temple.
