Did you know Hanoi is celebrating its 1000th anniversary? That’s right! The city is in the midst of its millennial and what is sure to be its biggest and most memorable anniversary celebration ever. You can be a part of this. How? Read on.
Exotissimo, in conjunction with Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi is welcoming visitors from around the world to literally travel through time and experience the country from the 11th century right up to its present history. Such sites include the Temple of Literature which was founded in 1070, the city’s Old Quarter which emerged in the 15th century and Ba Dinh Square, where Ho Chi Minh declared Vietnam’s independence in 1945.
Oh, and don’t forget the Metropole Hanoi, itself a rebuilt 1901 French colonial hotel and a part of the city’s history. Honored guests at the hotel include Charlie Chaplin, George H.W. Bush Jane Fonda, François Mitterrand and Jacques Chirac, just to name a few.
An expert guide will lead you to a walking tour of the city’s most iconic sites and to the French-colonial era buildings and structures as well as Chinese influenced temples. This four day-three night package also includes excursions to cultural festivals and events that is purely Hanoi, such as the famed water puppet show.
“Every one of the past centuries is a remarkable showcase for a significant Vietnamese development,” said George Ehrlich-Adams, general manager of Exotissimo Travel Vietnam. “And with Hanoi 1000, we expect to embed in visitors’ memories a collection of unforgettable references to Vietnam’s past.”
This tour will be in effect starting on Oct. 1st 2010 for three months. For more information, contact us at Exotissimo Travel.
