One Day in Hanoi

One Day in Hanoi trip

The French NGO, Association Autochtones, is offering a new One Day in Hanoi tourist trip that shows an alternative side to the capital, one that tourists rarely see on visits to Hanoi.

First up you meet your tour guide at 6.15am in front of the Ly Thai To statue in Ly Thai To Park. Here you can observe laughing yoga with a group of Hanoians before enjoying popular breakfast dishes. Then you venture through hidden alleyways where you may be tempted by an egg coffee.
Afterwards there will be questions, riddles and games as you have fun discovering Vietnamese culture and history and practicing the language. Relax in a secret garden and learn how to make Vietnamese spring rolls before tasting your own cooking and other traditional dishes.


Your guide will drive you to the kumquat plantations before taking you around the calm and quiet of West Lake where you’ll have lunch and sip on a traditional lotus tea.

This will be followed by some Vietnamese reflexology with a head and shoulders massage before the tour ends back at Ly Thai To Park between 5pm and 6pm.

Association Autochtones’s aim is to disseminate cultural knowledge and expose different cultures to each other.
