Visit Hoan Kiem Lake in the centre of the city. Major sites like St, Joseph’s Cathedral, Hoa Lo Prison and Ngoc Son Temple are situated around the lake. The Thang Long Water Puppet Theatre offers a dramatization of the legend surrounding Hoan Kiem Lake. After, walk through the National Museum of Vietnamese History to get a full scope of the country, from its prehistory to the present day.
Taxis come in many forms in Hanoi. The traditional car taxi is quite common, but so are cyclos (bicycle taxis). You could also opt for a motorcycle taxi ride. There is also a very healthy bus system throughout the city that offers a fast and reliable way around town.
Pho, bun cha and bun bo nam bo are three of the most iconic dishes to try while in Hanoi. One of the most famed places for food is the Old Quarter, and specifically the Hoan Kiem District, along with the Ba Dinh District. Also, Vietnam has its own distinct coffee culture, and no trip to Hanoi is complete without trying Vietnamese coffee.
