Tours in Hanoi (Vietnam)

Туры в Ханой

Hanoi – Vietnam's capital and second largest industrial center of the country (after Ho Chi Minh city). The name of Hanoi is literally translated as "the city among rivers" because the city is situated on the banks of the red river of the City. The population of Hanoi is 6 448 837 people, which is almost two times less than Moscow. The total area of Hanoi 3.3 million square kilometers, which is three times bigger than Moscow. Hanoi is among the 17 largest cities in the world and in the top ten the most attractive tourist cities in Asia.

In 2010 Hanoi celebrated its Millennium. The birthday was celebrated throughout the country. The occasion was felt even in the remotest corners of the country. Your current name city got only in 1831, from the day of founding in 1010 the city was named Thang long (meaning, city of the soaring dragon). Interestingly, in 1961-1962, the master plan of Hanoi was developed under the leadership of the Soviet architect Igor Alferov.

The city is located on the North (Hanoi interactive map of Vietnam), and visited by tourists all year round. For many tourists, Hanoi is the starting point for travelling in Vietnam or Asia. Near the capital are known throughout the world for its picturesque landscapes of Halong (Ha Long). From here travelers go to the mountain town of Sapa (Sapa) or continue across Asia in Laos and Thailand.

A beach holiday in Hanoi is not very. For a beach vacation in Vietnam, you need to go to the coast, in the resort town, and Hanoi is about the nearest ocean beaches 100 miles. But Hanoi is a very interesting tour for a sightseeing holiday. The city has a rich history and it is full of historical, cultural, architectural and religious attractions. Here is preserved as monuments that tell the history of the city and state from the beginning of his education, and heralds the modern history of the 20th century, for example, a statue of Lenin and Ho Chi Minh mausoleum, which is with love called "uncle Ho". The city has some very important and interesting museums. Like almost everywhere in Buddhist Asia, the city is scattered with temples, pagodas and other active religious sites.

The atmosphere of the city is very attractive, incredibly friendly, and many travelers fall in love at first sight. The city and its people are really very friendly, you can feel completely safe at any time of the day.

Life in Hanoi, despite the fact that it is the capital and very large cities, unhurried and quiet (except for traffic). Perhaps this is due to the fact that the population density of the city is not high. High-rise buildings in the city, except that a few hotels, almost no. Sometimes, walking around the city and looking around, you can forget that it is the capital, and to think that this is a small provincial town.

Nightlife in the city are under-represented. At night almost the whole town is sleeping and the streets don't even have transport. Hanoi rather be called the cultural capital, hence, the relevant evening entertainment: walking around Hoan Kiem lake or old quarter; Opera; theatre of water puppet; and, of course, a variety of restaurants and cafes.

To stay in Hanoi for a long period not necessarily. Two or three days to see the sights, watch a puppet theater on the water and walk through the most interesting parks would be enough. Usually it is in the form presented in Hanoi sightseeing package tours. But there are also longer tours with the stay in Hanoi, including trips to Halong Bay, Sapa and even Vietnam.

1. currency actually change at any time, best to do it in jewelry stores on the street, Hang Bac, tested personal experience, see
2. Really, especially if you arrive in the morning. If in doubt, you can order in advance on the website sinhcafe, but I wouldn't worry
3. Interesting question :-). In fact, the original passport is not required everywhere and take, sometimes the cost of a photocopy (although the law should be the original registration). I think this is a question the Agency resolved, so don't worry, just stock up on a photocopy. In General, why pay for two day just so the hotel, it is easier to be discharged, to book a room in two days, and leave things at them. So repeatedly done.
4. No problem. If at the minimum, to get from the airport on 17-m the bus (about 0.3$); on the cheap guestlist for two is$ 15; the tour is$ 50 for two. Plus eat, drink a beer and 15$ for two. A total of 80.3$, it is 1792560.99 at today's exchange rate, and if as wrote above, will not be for two more days the guest to take. Well, the upper limit is infinity ;) . While there, in Vietnam at all desire a lot of money to spend does not work, this is not Russia :lol: ...

3. I advise you to take a picture of the passport that was not just xero-, and the electronic copy, which you can show from your phone\tablet.
If You are leaving from Hanoi, why pay to stay in another hotel?
4. We toured the Bay of Ha long 3 days\2 nights (01-02-03 may 3016). The first night on the ship, the second in a Bungalow on a small island in the Bay, where they themselves arrived on Cat BA and spent the night there too. Cost as much as a week in a very decent hotel in Hoi an.
Here Hoane met guys who from Hanoi came to the Cat BA and got a personal tour for the day. Them with Cat BA in the morning and took the evening brought. Paid three times less than we drove across the Bay so as not to overlap with other groups. In addition there was a personal guide and a kayak. In my opinion (after the fact) the night on the ship is absolutely a waste of time, and besides, you can have a front row seat to a very loud karaoke concert. ...

Good day!
25 Jan arrive in Hanoi for the first time crossed the Vietnamese border (Visa for Russians is not needed), 2 days in Hanoi. Thence with 27 to February 4 fly to Singapore. Arrival from Singapore 4.02 about 18 hours to fly to Moscow on 5 February at 10.45 am.
Question: to 4 Feb to stay at a hotel in the city will have to do the Vietnamese visa? I do not want. And if you live near the airport also need a Visa? Does most of the transit Lounge where there are sleeping places? No idea how to survive 16 hours of transplantation. What are some ideas that may prompt experts visited Vietnam. We were there for the first time. Thank you. ...

If you go beyond the international zone at the airport, the visa will have to do no matter next to the airport, or far away. Generally the Hanoi airport is quite comfortable, and you can even sleep on the benches in the ordinary waiting area, there are no handrails. But 16 hours to be there, it's certainly a gesture. In principle, there is the Internet and there are places to charge, you can surf the Internet or work. Biznesses is, here - ...
