Day 11
Halong Bay to Hanoi
Enjoy your morning in the middle of the bay as the sun rises and breakfast is served while the vessel cruises slowly through the magnificent rock formations and back towards port. Then travel back to Hanoi and visit the Old Quarter. Take a walking tour through charming Hang Be Market and around Hoan Kiem Lake. This bustling area of narrow streets and alleys is home to thousands of small shops. It's a great place to explore with plenty of photo opportunities all around. Then end the day with a famous Water Puppet show.
tour image
Day 12
End of tour
This morning visit the Temple of Literature and the One Pillar Pagoda and the mausoleum of the historic father figure of modern Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh, and the former president's house on stilts where he lived from 1958 to 1969. His former home illustrates the modesty of this Vietnamese revolutionary. From here stroll along the lakeside to the nearby Taoist temple of Quan Thanh then do some more sightseeing or shopping before being taken to the airport to catch an onward flight or begin your journey home.
