    What to Expect
    Welcome to little Hanoi by visiting the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, located in the centre of Ba Dinh Square, where the Great Leader of Vietnam read the Declaration of Independence to father the Democratic Republic of Vietnam. This place is always a memorable historically place to all Vietnamese people, also the site which organizes the important event of the city.

    After that, visit The Temple of Literature, constructed in 1070 during Tran dynasty, a significant temple of Confucianism from 10th century in the most peaceful garden surrounded in Hanoi, also the first national university of Vietnam. There still remain 82 turtle steles carving names of Doctors who passed at the royal exams, small scattered pavilions and rock statues standing in the campus with 5 courtyards and 3 pathways inside the main gate.

    Finally, come to Ngoc Son Temple on a little island in the northern of Sword Lake, where has famous ancient Turtle Tower, the symbol of capital city Hanoi. The temple is connected to the shore by The Huc Bridge curving like a red shrimp above the green surface of the lake. On the shore, there are Pen Tower, the Ink Slab, the Moon Contemplation Pavilion… surrounded by water and shaded by trees. Tourists can find some antique bells and a glass terrarium that is home to a 250kg turtle.

    The main reason for choosing to do a Hanoi tour was being able to visit the main attractions with all entrance tickets and fees organised to avoid wasting time queuing at each place. I had heard the queue at Ho Chi Minh mausoleum gets very long due to its limited opening hours
