You’ll start the second day of your adventure with a motorbike tour of Hanoi – specifically on vintage Minsk ones. Before departing, you will be thoroughly informed about the rules of traffic and of course be responsible by our experienced drivers.
The opening of the day will be introducing you to “the REAL HANOI” by showing the daily life of locals. Your friendly companions take you through backstreets, tiny alleys, local homes, schools, random markets, and the black market so you can see how people live, work, and play there.
This is your chance to immerse yourself and blend into the soul of our elegant capital – a unique, ambiguous and abstract beauty that is rarely mentioned. You will not only see the good things but also the ugliness and weirdness of Hanoi as it is. Consequently, you will fall in love with a perfectly imperfect Hanoi any one way over another, like the way you fall in love with your lover regardless of her lovely flaws.
Of course, our courteous drivers will then take you pass by and stop at must-see places such as Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum-the Mecca of Vietnamese, the 1000-year-old Buddhist and Taoist temples of Tran Quoc, the historical training track, the enchanting French Quarter, the hustling and relevant Old Quarter, the romantic lakes of Hoan Kiem, West Lake, the Hanoi Opera House, and the famous Long Bien Bridge. Make sure you prepare a good mood and a camera with plenty of capacity to capture these beautiful memories.
After that, temporarily away from the hustle and bustle of the busy city, you are going to be taken to the poetic and peaceful villages and floating communities along the Red River to enrich your experiences of the contrast in the harmony of life between the city and the countryside of Hanoi.
Last but not least, we will take you to different authentic local restaurants, eateries and food stalls to fill your hungry stomach after a long day trip. Because food is the key to connecting people, it would be a mistake to miss the chance to savor the tastiest of the tasty dishes of Hanoi, including family heirlooms and secret recipe dishes, local delicacies, and specialties.
The evening will be the time for you to rest and prepare for the journey tomorrow morning.
Overnight in Hanoi.
