It was the first University in Vietnam, only for gifted student. Very huge with 5 parts, it has many stories inside each parts, each statue and area. Worth to visit !

I was there on Monday at mid day and the enterance fee was 30,000. It's worth it, possibly my favorite site in Hanoi. Very beautiful and totally worth it.
