Hanoi- smiletravel

Welcome guests at Noi Bai International Airport (New Terminal Gate 02 (Meeting point at Column 10)) then transfer to the city for hotel check in. However, hotel standard check in time starts from 14:00 hours, early check-in to hotel rooms is subject to room availability or at the hotel’s own discretion.


At 9:00 AM or 2:00 PM, our guide will welcome you at your hotel then start the walking tour to discover the Old and French Quarter.

Nowadays, the villages were turned to streets and many of them didn’t feature the business as it names anymore. But it’s worth your time to wander along the old streets and you surely gain many exciting experiences. Despite the damages that the Vietnam War left in Hanoi, the Old Quarter still retained much of the original traits that interest tourists, especially those with architectural passion. These houses are neither tall buildings as people normally see in cities nor stilt houses on lines of poles, which were popular in Vietnam’s mountainous regions these days. They are also called “tubular houses” which are short and narrow but have great length.

After walking around and enjoying some interesting places in the Old Quarter, you will be guided to Hoan Kiem Lake area where you can pay a visit to Ngoc Son temple and start to explore the French Quarter. Although the French colonial period ended a long time ago, much of French arts and Deco style are still imprinted in this quarter creating a unique, magnetic and charming Hanoi with its elegance and nobility.

Tour will end around 12.30 or 5.30 PM.
