Welcome to Hanoi, the vibrant capital of Vietnam. A true east-meets-west city, Hanoi is a cacophony of motorbikes, street stalls, temples, pagodas and skyscrapers. Explore the elegant Temple of Literature as well as Ngoc Son Temple, which extends out into Hoan Kiem Lake, which itself is a lovely peaceful spot away from the frenetic streets. In the evening, join your guide for a culinary adventure, sampling the street food and local beer from Hanoi’s Old Quarter.
