Begin your tour with a visit to the Temple of Literature—Vietnam’s first university, dating back to the 11th century. Founded as a Confucian temple, this tranquil setting served as a university for over 700 years.|
Next, hop aboard a cyclo—a "bicycle taxi" pedaled by a driver behind you—which gives you an unobstructed view, perfect for snapping photos during your tour of the Old Quarter. The heart of Hanoi, it's home to many of the must-sees, including Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum, the Hanoi Citadel, and the Opera House. Ride at the perfect pace along some of the 36 tree-shaded streets of this historic district.
Trade your seat on a cyclo for a seat in an ancient house, where you’re welcomed with a special greeting ceremony. As a band plays traditional music, theCheo (Vietnamese opera) performers invite you to enjoy refreshing green tea and betel as they talk aboutCheo and its origins. Two distinct performances follow, expressing the colors and flavors of this unique and ancient art form. Afterwards, spend a little time in this intimate setting for photos and conversation with the performers.
