After breakfast, your private tour guide will pick you up and your tour of Indochina starts with a full-day city tour of Hanoi. Below are the recommended sites, but of course, your guide will be happy to modify the list based on your preferences. Visits: – Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum and the Presidential Palace – Ho Chi Minh’s private home, a wooden stilt-house surrounded by lush gardens – Tran Quoc Pagoda, the oldest Buddhist Pagoda in Hanoi, is located on a small island near the southeastern shore of Hanoi’s West Lake. – Museum of Ethnology which focuses on the 54 officially recognised ethnic groups in Vietnam.
Lunch will be served at Pho Huyen, a Vietnamese noodle shop. Some locals call Pho Huyen’s world-famous noodle soup “Mac-Noodles” since it is as popular here in Hanoi as MacDonald’s is in other parts of the world! At the restaurant, your private tour guide will explain to you the routine during Vietnamese meal times, and educate you on the special ingredients used.
