Day 02 - Hanoi
Having late breakfast this morning and enjoy the nice setting of the hotel
In the afternoon, start the tour at the lotus shaped One Pillar Pagoda
, resting on a single stone pillar emerging from the water and the Temple of Literature
, the first University for the sons of mandarins, for an overview about Hanoian culture and ancient Vietnamese architecture. Then enjoy an hour cyclo
ride through the Old Quarter
, one of Vietnam’s most lively and unusual places, where you can buy anything from a gravestone to silk pajamas. Cap off the day with a show at the water puppet theater
- a uniquely northern Vietnamese art form depicting scenes of rural life and episodes of national history.
