    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Old Quarter, Hanoi 100000 Vietnam

    our guide meets you at your hotel in Hanoi Old Quarter area to start your walking tour of Hanoi’s Old Quarter, famed for its '36 old streets. Dating back more than 1,000 years, the Old Quarter developed as a group of workshops outside of the royal palace.

    Today, the streets are still grouped by what they sell, with names to match, such as Bat Su (china bowls), Cha Ca (roasted fish), Hang Bac (jewelry), Hang Dau (shoes and sandals), Hang Gai (silks), To Tich (mixed fruits), Hang Luoc (combs), Hang Duong (candies and dried fruits), and Hang Buom (bamboo products). Wander around with your guide, enjoying the hustle and bustle of the neighborhood. You can taste some local specialties, if you wish (own expense), and continue to the Hoan Kiem Lake area to visit Ngoc Son Temple. Then perhaps stop for a treat at Fany Ice Cream or Thuy Ta Ice Cream, or visit popular cafes and restaurants nearby (food and drinks at your own expense).
