The capital of Vietnam, Hanoi has bounded back from the effects of war, and today serves as a bustling commercial and cultural hub bursting at the seams.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Ba Dinh Square and HanoiKids Tour. Popular historic sites such as Old Quarter and Chua Tran Quoc are in your itinerary. Spend the 1st (Thu) exploring nature at Ba Vi National Park. On the 4th (Sun), spend an adventurous day with a kayaking and canoeing tour. There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Hoa Lo Prison, make a trip to Hang Gai Street (Street of Hemp), get out on two wheels at MotoTours Asia, and explore the world behind art at Fine Arts Museum (Bao Tang My Thuat).
