Hanoi Day Trips
Start your Hanoi day tour early with a bicycle ride to Long Bien bridge to watch the sunrise. Then head to a busy Hanoi local market to see the traders buying and selling their fruit, vegetables, meat and even flowers.
Or enjoy a day trip from Hanoi and head out to Tam Coc or Trang An and the beautiful mountains of the National park near Ninh Binh. The backdrop of these impressive mountains was good enough for the Kong movie so good enough for you.
Perhaps while walking around the Old Quarter you have been tempted to try out Hanoi street food but have been worried which stalls are hygienic or clean. Take a Private Street food tour of Hanoi with me Ngat, by walking the streets of the famous Hanoi Old Quarter with your very own private local guide to see & taste many different street food dishes, culminating in a fresh icy dessert to help with the heat of the Hanoi weather.
