On this History of Hanoi Day Tour, you'll visit the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum where you'll learn more about the man who led Vietnam’s campaign for independence from French rule. His body is enclosed in a sarcophagus made of glass located deep within the marble edifice.
Grab the chance to wander the grounds surrounding the One Pillar Pagoda & the Presidential Palace.
As its name suggests, the wood based One Pillar Pagoda is set right in the middle of a vast & square shaped lotus pond with a well tended garden & benches where you can sit, enjoy a tasty snack or great coffee & take in the magnificent view.
Constructed sometime between 1028 & 1054 when Emperor Ly Thai Tong of the Ly Dynasty was still in power, it is said to symbolize a lotus flower blossoming from water & is among the country's most popular & iconic temples.
The Presidential Palace features a pond, a guest house as well as the car used by Ho Chi Minh back in the 1950s. It's a must-see if not for its gorgeous European architecture then for its tranquil gardens.
Next, visit the 11th century relic, the Temple of Literature, built as a homage to the Chinese scholar, Confucius.
Your History of Hanoi Day Tour ends with a breezy cyclo ride through the Old Quarter’s 36 streets.
