You plan to visit the city of Hanoi soon? Here are the Top 3 Touristy Things to Do in the city:
“Pho” could be said as one of the most popular symbols of Vietnam among foreign tourists. Thus, it is only reasonable that you have to try eating Pho at least once when visiting Vietnam. And as Vietnamese dishes greatly differ in each region (South, Middle, North), the authentic taste of Pho should be found in Hanoi (Northern Vietnam). Many have recommended going to number 10, Ly Quoc Su Street for Pho.
Of course, if you are a food-lover, Hanoi has so many more delicious dishes to offer than just Pho. At the top of the list would be Bun Cha, Banh Mi (Vietnamese sandwich), Cha Ca La Vong (grilled fish), Bia Hoi (draught beer) and more.
Visit Ha Long Bay
This UNESCO recognized natural heritage site never fails to “wow” visitors with its breathtaking seascape of emerald waters, magnificent limestone mountains and countless pristine islands and islets. The popularity of the destination plus its close distance from Hanoi makes Halong Bay a must-visit destination for most tourists coming to Hanoi.
Going on a Ha Long cruise tour is definitely the best way to experience Ha Long: to fully take in the beauty of the bay, to kayak through open spaces under the karsts and to swim at the quiet and unspoiled beaches. Itineraries available for Halong bay include day cruises, 2 day 1 night cruises and 3 day 2 night cruises. The 3 day 2 night itinerary is strongly recommended for exploring not only Halong bay, but the whole Gulf of Tonkin including Halong Bay, Bai Tu Long Bay, Lan Ha Bay and Cat Ba Island.
Explore the Old Quarter
Your visit to Hanoi would not be complete without spending at least one day exploring the Old Quarter area. Though changed in some way, the antique quarter of 36 streets and guilds still lies there, among modern development, as the eternal soul of the city.
Prepare your feet for a day full of walking street after street and your senses to take in the locals’ daily life, the narrow style of streets and houses left from old times, the colorful souvenir shops, the maze of interconnecting streets and of course several of the tastiest dishes in the country.
