One of the quintessential modes of transport in Vietnam, the Vespa is a fitting portal to a night of exploration in the country’s charismatic capital. What’s more, with experienced local drivers to guide the scooters through the narrow hidden alleys of the city, there’s potential to soak up far more than on an independent walking tour.
The journey kicks off by taking in some of the city’s most iconic sights. First up is the graceful French quarter and the Opera House, then comes the famous “dyke” road with its world-record breaking ceramic mural. No visit to Hanoi is complete without a pilgrimage to Ho Chi Minh’s mausoleum. The final resting place of the Vietnamese hero is closed at night, but the ride around his tomb is strangely evocative.
From the past to the present, the evening finishes up in raucous style at a local music venue where Hanoi’s hip young things gather to let their hair down.
