Getting lost in the Hanoi Old Quarter - Free Walking Tour
Xin Chao! I am Huyen. I was born and raised in Hanoi. My passions are always traveling and getting to know fascinating places, meeting people from all over the world, and experiencing top gastronomy linking food and cultures. Over the past few years, I have travelled across Vietnam from ordinary places to exotic spots like Ha Giang and Ca Mau, known as the Northernmost & Southernmost points, and many more! Vietnamese food has an unique identity and varies in different parts. Believe it or not, northern, middle, and southern food is tasted differently. Also, I have been tried all the top Vietnamese food nationwide and ready to relay all of my knowledge and expertise to you. Are you ready to come along with me? I can't wait to show you the city that I love. Cheers!
As the oldest continuously developed area, Hanoi’s Old Quarter has more than 1000 years of history and seems to resist the flow of time while still actively trying to adapt to the crowded atmosphere of the city. Wandering around this unique ancient area, you will get lost in a different world from the rest of the capital and discover things you haven’t seen in your life: Hanoi attractions, the smallest alley, or some hidden spots which are far from tourist's eyes.
