- Upon arrival in Hanoi, your guide and private car will meet you and transfer you to your hotel for check-in. Vietnam’s quaint capital is a city of wide tree-lined boulevards with tranquil lakes and colonial villas and a more sedate pace than other Asian cities. Hanoi offers something for everyone and will leave you wishing that you had longer to explore this enthralling capital.
- Depending on your arrival time, visit the city’s Ethnology Museum (closed on Mondays) to explore Vietnam’s diverse culture through the Museum’s unique presentation of articles and dress used in daily life. As an alternative to the Ethnology Museum, visit the highly acclaimed Vietnam Women’s Museum (closed on Mondays). The museum is located near Hoan Kiem Lake and offers wonderful insight into the lives of Vietnamese women. Displays highlight Vietnam’s vast cultural diversity and educate on the significant role Vietnamese women play in Vietnamese society. Learn historic and modern-day traditions centered around births, weddings, motherhood, spirituality and more.
- This evening, experience a Tuong performance which is a traditional form of entertainment in northern Vietnam. (Depending on the day you arrive, the performance may be a Ca Tru performance instead.) Tuong is a kind of traditional Vietnamese tragicomedy and comic opera combining song, dance and theatre into a highly entertaining hours show Ca Tru is an ancient genre of chamber music featuring female vocalists, with origins in northern Vietnam. For much of its history, it was associated with a geisha-like form of entertainment. Note: if Ca Tru or Tuong are not available on this evening a traditional water puppet performance will be seen instead.
- Your dinner will be held in the heart of Hanoi’s Old Quarter in the home of a true Hanoian who learnt her culinary skills from her grandmother who used to cook for the French elite in the 1930’s.
- Overnight in Hanoi.
