Meet up at your hotel. After a short brief information about the traffic and how to ride the bike in Hanoi, we start to cycle to Thang Long ancient Citadel located in Hoang Dieu st. We will visit Doan Mon gate, Kinh Thien Palace, Hau Lau and The Northern Gate. Keep walking north, we will see the house D67, an underground tunnel enabled the military to flee to other parts in case of a raid. There, you can understand how Vietnamese military fought to protect the capital and that’s the place where General Vo Nguyen Giap used to work and live.
Thang Long Citadel
After visiting Thang Long Citadel, we continue cycling to Huu Tiep Lake and see the B-52 Memorial. A B52 was shot down by North Vietnamese SA-2 Surface to Air Missiles during the Christmas Offensive of December 1972. Visiting Ngoc Ha Market is also available.
It takes very short distance from Huu Tiep Lake to Hanoi Botanical Garden where we will take a stroll around the central lake and enjoy fresh air. This was known as the lung of Hanoi and was created in 1890 by French landscape architects. The park is not only a haven of tranquility for nature lovers in the noisy and hectic city, but serves the inhabitants especially in the morning and evening hours as a place for sportive activities.
