Visiting a World Heritage site, a city museum, traveling to the French Quarter and the Ho Chi Minh complex, taking a leisurely stroll around West Lake and the Old Quarter, and enjoying a water puppet show

9:00 AM: Get Picked up by a tour guide to the Temple of Literature, which was constructed in the 11th century during the Ly dynasty for Confucius worship and to educate Royal children. Take a stroll through the garden to the city’s landmark, Khue Van Cac. The World Heritage “stone steles” that display the names of honor roll students will thereafter be your next stop. Continue your exploration of Quoc Tu Giam, which is regarded as Vietnam’s first national university.

Next stop at the Ethnology Museum (closed every Monday) which offers a deep insight into Vietnamese culture through traditional costumes, tools, musical instruments and traditional houses of many ethnic groups. To fully explore this interesting museum, it takes you around two hours.

In the afternoon, you visit the French Quarter, Hanoi’s “little Paris” with tree-lined boulevards, government headquarters, and a large square. Visit Ho Chi Minh’s mausoleum (outside) before taking a leisurely stroll through the botanical gardens to the Presidential Palace, Ho Chi Minh’s mansion on stilts where he used to live and work. One of the city’s icons is the one-of-a-kind one-pillar pagoda. Depending on the amount of travelers, we spend 1 to 2 hours exploring this complex.

Return to the city center for a rest before seeing the unique water puppet show that first debuted in the 11th century. Puppets on water depict the daily lives, culture, and beliefs of the Vietnamese people in these shows. A traditional music performance is frequently included in the show.

After the show, relax with dinner (on your own) or a stroll through the city center. Take a short car trip to Hanoi Train Station in the evening. Take a traditional overnight train from Hanoi to Sapa.

Directly to the village of Lao Chai. The rice field is crossed by a little walkway that leads to a hamlet.

They are originally from Southern China, but moved to Vietnam in the 11th century and continue to dwell at high altitudes, distant from the modern world. This assists them in preserving their customs, language, and, most importantly, their ancestral way of life. Make a detour to visit a Hmong family and school in Ma Tra Village. After a 3-hour journey, you will arrive at the Red Dao group’s Ta Phin village. Interact while you’re walking.
