Good Morning Hanoi
- Half Day
Today’s tour begins at 5:30. It’s an early start but one that is well-worth it! Meet with the local guide at 05:30AM to catch the first rays of the sun and to see Hanoi waking up. Head to Long Bien market, the biggest fruit and vegetable wholesale market in North Vietnam. Nowhere else in Hanoi exemplifies Vietnamese life better than Long Bien market. Witness buyers crowding around open-back trucks, money counters holding court over their stalls, motorbikes weaving down aisles and other mind-boggling scenes of daily life. This is far-and-away one of the most impressive markets in North Vietnam.

Then take a stroll around Hoan Kiem Lake, the heart of Hanoi. Pass by groups of Hanoians partaking in daily exercise such as gymnastics, martial arts and aerobics. Take a moment to look around and see signs of the city coming to life. Enjoy this silent slower pace that occurs before the start of Hanoi’s incessant traffic and honking horns.

Then move to peaceful garden and join in a 45-minute Tai Chi class under the guidance of a local teacher, discover the slow movements of this popular martial art.

Afterward, pass Primary School and view the interesting scene of parents carrying their kids on motorbikes to start their school day before heading to a popular local restaurant for a typical Vietnamese breakfast of Pho, a traditional noodle soup bursting with flavour.

Last stop is at a local shop to sample Vietnamese coffee like the way local do while overlooking the lake. Try a sweet iced coffee or opt for a slow-brewed hot java while enjoying people watching in this scenic location.


Following the morning of cultural immersion, continue to the next activity or return to the hotel for a rest. (B)

*In option: For early birds, possibility to visit the unique flower wholesale market of Hanoi (leave the hotel at 3.30 am)
