Take a trip to Hanoi, the centuries-old capital of Vietnam, where the architecture and culture of China and France highlight this ancient southeast Asian city. While Hanoi is usually just the starting point for our Vietnam and Laos tours, several tours offer opportunities to explore the city & experience its charms, like the morning Tai Chi or aerobics done around the lake or the UNESCO-restored French architecture. In the Old Quarter, you'll see the Temple of Literature, which was built in 1076 AD & served as the country's first university, operational for 700 years. Huu Tiep Lake, aka ‘B-52 lake’, is an interesting site where the remains of a crashed US bomber can be seen. Your tour will continue on to nearby destinations like Hanh Chuong Viet Palace, a cruise on Ha Long Bay, or hiking through the mountain town of Sapa. Let us know when you're ready to start planning!
