Hello! We are young enthusiasts who love to travel, experience different cultures, taste different cuisines and meet many friends from all over the world. Although we come from many different regions of Vietnam, we all love the capital of Hanoi which has more than 1000 years of history. The name of our club Hanoitismiss, founded by 4 colleagues who can speak Spanish and English, contains many special meanings. Hanoitismiss, with "tis" in the Spanish word "free" means that you will experience a "free" walking tour to explore all the historical places, culture and people. On the other hand, the "miss", an English word, is related to that you will have an unforgettable trip with us and will remember Hanoi forever. When pronouncing the name Hanoitismiss in Vietnamese, it sounds like "Hanoi Tít Mít", translated as traveling and immersing yourself in the journey until you forget the way back home. Our professional and experienced guides will provide you with a meaningful, fun and complete trip. Join us now.

Tour description

The Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and the Temple of Literature are 2 fascinating historical and cultural destinations that you cannot miss when you come to Hanoi. If you have visited the bustling Old Quarter and still have time to spare in Hanoi and don't know where to go, let us accompany you to continue discovering more aspects of the 1000-year-old city.

Our tour will include the following tourist attractions:

  • Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum (entrance ticket: 40,000 VND)
  • ba dinh square
  • one pillar pagoda
  • Temple of Literature (entrance ticket: 30,000 VND)
  • Coffee

🔸 Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum: It is a mausoleum that serves as the resting place of the revolutionary leader and Vietnamese president Ho Chi Minh. Here you will experience a dignified atmosphere seeing President Ho Chi Minh's body placed in a glass box, on a bed placed on a stone pedestal with 4 soldiers standing guard inside the room.
🔸Ba Dinh Square: We visited the square where President Ho Chi Minh read the Proclamation of Independence of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam on September 2, 1945 (now Vietnam National Day).
🔸One Pillar Pagoda: We discover "Asia's most unique pagoda" and learn about its interesting structure and legend.
🔸Temple of Literature (entrance ticket: 30,000 VND): It is the first National University of Vietnam, which is dedicated to Confucius, sages and scholars. Here you will learn about history, architecture, stories, traditional costumes and some more fun facts of one of the most famous temple in Vietnam.
🔸 Coffee: We end the tour in a cafeteria. You will enjoy a coffee with an egg or a tropical fruit juice to relax and chat more with our tour guides.

The 3-hour trip will give you an unforgettable experience, true to our club's name with detailed information about culture, history and life. Our friendly and enthusiastic tour guides will help you discover exceptional beauties only in Hanoi, "very local" places. The streets are often maze-like short, which can make it all too easy to get lost without a local escort.

1. Book the tour 2 hours before the tour start time so that we can organize ourselves well and that our tour guide has time to reach the meeting point.
2. You must dress respectfully, something that covers your knees and shoulders, which means no shorts, sleeveless tops, or miniskirts. Photography is not allowed inside.

Book our tour now. We are very glad to meet you on our interesting tour.
