    Nothing says Hanoi like a walk around Hoan Kiem lake. If you're ever in the region an early morning walk or late even wander will give you the best sense of community. The lake is a bit too busy for me during tge weekend, but I highly recommend a few laps while in the city.

    We visited using a hop on hop off tour bus. There are two sites at this popular location. The temple itself and a small lake with cultural activities across the very busy road. Entrance to the temple was approx $3 and the lake area was free. Both sites were educational and informative.
    Heavy traffic around these sites was reduced to a crawl, so plan extra time in your day to get to or leave the site.
    Incidentally, if you intend using a hop on hop off bus, Hanoi City Tour stopped travelling to its stop at this site, leaving angry customers behind. City Sightseeing Tour buses picked up its customers - no matter the traffic conditions.

    The historical dates. timelines and general accounts are valuable, especially since most people under age 60 don’t really know much about the Vietnam wars.
    I agree with so many previous reviews about making the treatment of the Americans seem like a resort and not a “hell on Earth” as it really was.
    Leave a couple of hours to go through it thoroughly.

    If you want to know more about the history of Hanoi, this Museum is a must to visit. Very detailed information both indoors and outside. We initially told our driver 30 minutes but we took about an hour. Loved it!

    This is a four floor museum with lots of interesting information about women’s experiences like marriage, giving birth, being part of the resistance etc. the exhibits are great. The only thing I disliked was the constant propaganda when discussing women’s experience during the war

    This was my second visit to Hanoi, however both times I didn't manage to see Mr. Ho Chi Minh's body in his Mausoleum, but was around in front and on other sites around the complex.
    So basically, you're reading tips from a traveler who didn't make it inside, but for sure will next time :-)
    HCM Mausoleum is within a huge space with several another sites.
    When entering the area you pass an airport style security check. After that you can roam freely exploring the area. You need around 2 hours min for that, excluding the Mausoleum, which visit length depends on the queueing line.

    Besides the Mausoleum within the complex is the Presidential Palace, One Pillar Pagoda, HCM stilt house and a Museum (small entry fees for the latter two).
    People here review and post pics of all these together, but I'll focus on the Mausoleum, while others you can read in respective reviews.

    My previous visit in 2017 was during some Vietnam holidays, so the waiting line in front was very long, some 2+ hours as I was told by police, so I gave up.
    This year, in Jan 2024 I put it high on my to do list saving our last day only for that.
    Unfortunately, I did not know the Mausoleum is NOT open every day. It's open only 4 days a week and some of these days only 8-11 AM. So, inform yourself beforehand if you want to enter it and see Mr. HCM body.
    All other attractions on the premises are open every day, so you still have plenty to visit.

    The church was huge and majestic. It stands so well aside from the normal buildings around it. We don’t get to enter as it was closed during our time. The architecture is gothic in its own way.

    Way much better than the Arts museum in Ho Chi Minh. Wider range of art works and better maintained building. Saw some of the best pieces of paintings I've ever seen here. Slight negative is that some rooms air-conditioning needs improving. In terms of crowds it's more empty compared to other museums so don't expect queues. Highly recommend

    We reached out to Mrs. Huyen and she crafted a comprehensive 1-day MGloria Cruise (Lan Ha Bay) itinerary for us, perfectly aligning with our preferences. Her pricing was competitive, and we're thrilled we chose Vietnam Moon Travel. Mrs. Huyen was incredibly attentive, meeting with us at the beginning and end of our trip and staying in touch throughout. Thanks to her, we could relax and enjoy our holiday worry-free. Highly recommended!

    In many brochures I've read this Opera was built according to Paris Garnier Opera house. In my modest opinion, it is nice, specially for Asia, but totally incomparable with Paris'
    Nice pass by attraction to have some photos.

    This was a very similar museum to HCMC War Remnants museum we've visited two weeks earlier in Saigon. This one looks more like a showcase of ceased weaponry, so I preferred the HCMC one.
    Anyway, I suggest visiting and it's in the center of Hanoi in vicinity of the Flag tower.

    Presidential Palace is situated on the premises of HCM Mausoleum area - a huge complex with several attractions within it.
    The Palace itself is very beautiful painted in vivid yellow with red tiles roof. It was built in 1900's for the French Governor of Indochina. Later, the resident was Mr. HCM and nowadays it houses the Vietnam President.
    Unfortunately you cannot visit the Palace, it's only for officials.

    DO NOT be confused with many reviewers here writing about and posting pics of visit. This is for the Stilt House HCM used, which is 5 min walk away and open for visits with a small fee.
