If you need a break from the chaos of the Hanoi Old Quarter, then this half-day trip is an excellent option. Apart from the French-inspired architectures, the area is characterized by wide tree-line boulevards and far easier to navigate than the narrow alleys of the Old Quarter. It is also home to some of Hanoi’s finest hotels and restaurants.
Today, you will take a tour explores the French Quarter through the ideas of its architects and the shape of its stones. It sets about unraveling all the threads of civilization, which have left their mark on the area, beginning with recent reminders of Soviet style. Only just around the corner discover a different world altogether as we visit the Buddhist pagoda of Quan Su, the centre of Vietnamese Buddhism and Tran Hung Dao streets. We will learn about the French approach to justice and punishment and hear tales of daring Vietnamese resistance to the repressive regime. We finish tour with stop to enjoy a nice cup of coffee.
