Hanoi is a melting pot of culture that encompasses the best of Vietnam. Once a small fishing village, Hanoi has transformed into a popular tourist destination with many exciting sights and attractions. Plus, it is located not too far (about a 2-hour-and-40-minute drive, depending on traffic) from Ha Long Bay, which is another one of the country’s biggest draws. Hanoi is filled with everything from colorful artisan shops to historic temples and French architecture to luscious parks, historically significant sites, and much more. You will also come across many street food vendors where you can get a taste of local cuisine. Haiphong, another city in Vietnam that’s worth a visit, is also about an hour and a half drive from Hanoi.

With so many incredible things to do and see, if you take a cruise starting in Hanoi, you may want to consider spending additional time in the city before or after your cruise. That way, you can ensure you have enough time to see it all! A great time to visit Hanoi, for when its most ideal weather usually occurs, is between February and April or October and November. Because of its popularity as a vacation destination, many cruise lines include Hanoi as a destination port in their Asia cruise itineraries, and several feature it as a departure port.

River Cruise Lines

Becoming more and more popular, a river cruise is an immerse and destination-focused vacation experience, on a small and luxurious vessel.

River cruises sail through the inland waterways of some of the world's most interesting vacation destinations (i.e. Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and North America), and provide their guests with a greater opportunity to spend time visiting more unique ports of call than a traditional cruise typically would.

Because the destination is the star of a river cruise, (typically guided) shore excursions are included at no additional charge by many River cruise lines. There are usually many interesting lectures given during the cruise, by experts on the history and culture of the region being visited.

Among the famous rivers that one may take a river cruise on are the Rhine, Mississippi, Seine, Danube, Mekong, Nile, Yangtze, Amazon and Douro.

In fact, some of these cruise lines have all-inclusive pricing. There's a definite focus on the ship's surrounding scenery, as well as opportunities to view wildlife in their natural habitat. Small, but comfortable, ships are commonplace here, with anywhere from basic to very luxurious public spaces, cuisine, and accommodations (depending on the cruise line and ship).

Sailing Yachts, sail-assisted motor ships, offer a really unique vacation experience.

Things to do near Hanoi

These are just a few of the more popular tourist attractions in Hanoi, along with a brief description:

♦ Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum

A must-stop for anyone spending time in Hanoi is the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. History buffs are likely to be especially interested in this sight, as it is the final resting place of President Ho Chi Minh (who also led the Vietnamese Revolutionary War). Inside, you can pay respects to the president’s preserved body, which is guarded around the clock. This is also a great opportunity to admire the building’s exterior Vietnamese-influenced architecture. There are also a few gardens on the grounds where you can appreciate local flora and fauna. Afterward, visit the Ho Chi Minh Museum (located right next door) where you can learn more about President Ho Chi Minh’s life and influence.

As Hanoi has many roots in culture and religion, it’s no surprise that the city is filled with many shrines, temples, and pagodas. Among the most popular of these sights include One Pillar Pagoda (a historic Buddhist temple with relaxing grounds), Temple of the Jade Mountain (focused around Vietnamese folklore and legend), Tran Quoc Pagoda (Buddhist temple on an island), and Quan Thanh Temple (an 11th century temple). The Temple of Literature (a complex of temples) is also another popular sight in Hanoi! Plus, many of these temples and shrines are located within close proximity of one another, so you can easily hit them all in one day.

♦ Dong Xuan Market

Located in the center of the city, Dong Xuan Market one of Hanoi’s largest covered three-story markets that shouldn’t be missed! You can browse vendors for all sorts of goods, including clothes, food, bags, shoes, fresh flowers, jewelry and more.
