At 09:30 you’ll visit the One Pillar Pagoda, which is actually a group of structures that collectively make up a pagoda built over the water in the middle of a square lake. After that, you’ll have a chance to explore the Tran Quoc Pagoda on the shore of west lake. From there, it’s onto the Temple of literature, which was Viet nam’s first university and is dedicated to Confucius. At 12.30 you have lunch at the restaurant in the Old Quarter. Afterwards, you’ll visit Hoan Kiem Lake - the heart and soul of Hanoi. For the Option 1 (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday), you'll stop in the Museum of Ethnology. This superb museum showcases the depth of Vietnamese cultural diversity with an astounding collection of 15,000 artifacts gathered from throughout Vietnam. Maps, displays and dioramas are labelled in Vietnamese, French and English. The displays portray a typical village market, the making of comical hats and a Tay shamanic ceremony; the videos show the real thing. You can also check out a traditional Black Thai house, reconstructed in the museum. There's also a center for research and conservation where scientists from all over the world study traditional Vietnamese cultures. For Option 2 (Monday, Wednesday and Friday), depart for Bat Trang ceramic village, which is about 20 kilometers away from Ha Noi. This pottery village has a half-millinery historic development. Between 15:30 and 16:00, head back to your hotel. It is possible to extend this tour with either a Cyclo trip or Water Puppet show, for the additional cost of $5 per person. If you would like to request either of these activities, please kindly inform the supplier at least 36 hours before your tour departure time.
