Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, is known for its centuries-old architecture and a rich culture with Southeast Asian, Chinese and French influences. At its heart is the Old Quarter, where the narrow streets are roughly arranged by trade. Luxury accommodations will be provided in the historic area and provide a number of amenities that will make your trip comfortable. You will be within walking distance to shopping, dining, nightlife and historic landmarks.
Within Hanoi, we will tour revolutionary leader Ho Chi Minh's tomb and stilt house, the Temple of Literature, the Hanoi Hilton and Hoan Kiem Lake. One day, we will depart the hotel by private coach for a two hour drive, a scenic boat ride and then hike up the limestone cliffs of the Perfumed Pagoda.
