Escape the bustling confines of Hanoi city, and breath the fresh air on this full-day rural Vietnam tour. With a local lunch of goat meat, fried rice and local fruits onboard, you’ll be fueled for an afternoon of action, taking in the scenery by both bamboo boat and mountain bike. See local villagers going about their daily lives as you come to appreciate a quieter slice of Vietnamese culture.

Located next to the Military Museum and Flag Tower. Massive entrance hall so not sure if they normally get large crowds, there were only a few of us when we visited during the coronavirus outbreak . Big site, ask for a plan at the entrance and follow the route shown. A complex of historical buildings including Doan Mon Gate , French Colonial buildings and some ancient steps which I think did originally lead up to a now destroyed palace. You still can’t escape the French/American conflicts though, there are some underground bunkers that were used as a Military HQ. You can also visit an archeological site at the end of the route on the opposite side of a road. Worth a visit but a bit short on actual pre French historical buildings.

Not quite as spectacular as the Citadel in Hue but definitely worth a visit. You are given a map at the ticket office with a suggested route, which is worth following, as you could otherwise miss so much. Very interesting to see the Command Headquarters and bunkers from the war, with good original exhibit. We spent a good couple of hours wandering around as there is quite a lot to see.

Beautiful Old structure, Huge and nice to walk. Great to have a picture but for me, not much to see except to learn some history about the Vietnam war.

Its a beautiful citadel located in the heart of Hanoi. U can spend an hour n half here easily. There’s a lot of sections to see here, including a bunker from the Vietnam War era. Wear comfortable shoes bcoz there’s a lot of walking. Pick up a map from the ticket counter so that u dont miss any of the places to visit inside, bcoz it can get confusing. Entry ticket is 30,000 VND . Totally worth a visit👍🏼

If you’re visiting the war museum and the mausoleum area, this is in between, and worth going. Quite extensive area, and being rebuilt building after building, as part was destroyed during the war. So do not hesitate if you have time. You will have a nice tour.
