Hanoi By Night Tour
Hanoi comes alive at night with glistening streets and bright, bustling markets. Get your exercise in the cool of the evening with this walking tour of the historic quarter. Taste a range of delicacies in the Đồng Xuân covered market, then proceed through the streets, stopping to taste different morsels along the way. See a different aspect of the city in the neon of nighttime.
What to Expect

Pick up in the hotel in Hanoi Old Quarter area from 18:00 - 18:10.
Take a food-themed walking tour of Hanoi with a maximum group size of 06 to 08 passengers. Begin your 3 hours evening walking tour at Hanoi’s largest covered market, Dong Xuan. Along the perimeter of the market, dozens of street hawkers sell a staggering variety of produce from live seafood to exotic fruits and spices. Your expert English-speaking local guide will give you an insight into the intricacies and traditions of Vietnamese food culture, including details on ingredients and historical backgrounds of popular northern dishes. Eat as you go, trying seasonal fruits and sampling a tasty French-inspired snack from a street cart.

Walking through the maze of bustling streets that make up Hanoi’s Old Quarter, tempt your taste buds with the famed Hanoi dish Banh Cuon at a local eatery. Watch in awe as the skilled chefs demonstrate for you how this tasty dish is put together. Continuing into the atmospheric heart of the Old Quarter, wander past street stalls and quiet residential lanes where you can observe local life that has changed little since Hanoi was founded more than 1,000 years ago.

Your next 2 snack stops are at outdoor barbecue stalls. Sit down with the Hanoi locals and sample various meat, vegetable and bread specialties that are flame-grilled over hot coals for extra flavor. It’s then time for dessert as you venture down a small alley to join in the local tradition of feasting on fresh fruit served in a cup and smothered with crushed iced and condensed milk. This specialty is not to be missed!

Your local guide will then take you to one of Hanoi’s best kept secrets, a hidden café with stunning views over the picturesque Hoan Kiem Lake. This hard-to-find café is one of the few left in the city that still serves egg coffee, a scrumptious local delicacy that you will sample whilst admiring the hustle and bustle of the city center below. 

Back hotel around 21:00
