Things to do in Hanoi
In a city as rich in history as Hanoi, there is always something to see or do. If you’re a history buff or love ancient architecture, you’ll want to experience the Temple of Literature. This ancient site was constructed in 1070 and is where you can see the Well of Heavenly Clarity as well as stroll through buildings, courtyards and walkways that were once used by royalty. For another dose of history, take a walk through the halls of Hoa Lo Prison to see exhibits reflecting the Vietnamese struggle for independence from France and stories of the American prisoners held captive here during the Vietnam War. Seek out Ho Hoan Kiem Lake to learn more about a local legend that tells a tale of a valiant Vietnamese emperor who used a heavenly sword to drive out his enemies. If you’re in Hanoi in late January, you’ll see a colourful festival at the Hai Ba Trung Temple. This temple pays homage to two sisters, believed to be Vietnamese queens, who refused to surrender to the Chinese. In the heart of the Old Quarter district, you will find the Bach Ma Temple. The temple holds a carving of the legendary horse of Emperor Ly Thai To as well as his gilded red lacquered funeral palanquin. If you have a free evening, take in a show at Hanoi Opera House. And for a true old-world Vietnamese shopping experience, head to Đồng Xuân Market. Merchants crowd each of the three storeys to sell clothing, housewares, souvenirs, fresh foods, and even animals. It can be a bit crowded and chaotic, but the experience is one you will remember.
