DescriptionAfter being collected from your port of choosing, your first stop will be to the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum where you will learn about the revolutionary leader Ho Chi Minh. There will be an opportunity here to take pictures of this historic site, before you move onward to B52 Ho Huu Tiep Lake. The lake is an eerie reminder of the Vietnam War, where a B-52 bomber was shot down just before the war ended. The wreckage in the middle of this otherwise tranquil lake is a powerful reminder of the human cost of conflict. Next up, you will visit a perfect example of historical architecture at the perfectly preserved Temple of Literature, which was Vietnam’s first national university. Built in 1070, the Temple of Literature is often considered one of Hanoi’s most attractive landmarks. Following this, you will enjoy a local North Vietnamese lunch before heading to the Hoa Lo Museum, also known as 'Hanoi Hilton'. This former prison, used by French colonists for prisoners of war, is one of Hanoi’s most historically significant sites. After the prison, you will explore Hanoi’s Old Quarter. Dating back to the 13th century, this area is a lively hub with countless stores selling every item imaginable. This exciting and sometimes overwhelming labyrinth of ancient streets is a must-see for tourists who want to get a sense of the cultural and historical importance of this fascinating city. To escape the hustle and bustle of the Old Quarter’s madness, you will then head to the Hoan Kiem Lake. This tranquil lake surrounds the Ngoc Son Temple which lies majestically on a small island in the center of the lake. If you would like to explore on your own terms, simply decide a meet up time with your guide and they will return you to your cruise ship with plenty of time. Remember, this tour is completely customizable, allowing you to craft your ideal Hanoi adventure!
