Halong Bay Vietnam

We took a 1 day tour to Halong Bay. In my opinion it was over-rated.. Basically the tour bus picked us up from the hotel in the morning and it was a 5 hour bus ride to the area to board the junk. Cruising along the junk took about 2 hours where lunch was served on board and they also took us to visit a cave. After which, we were cruising along the bay and then it was back to the tour bus to take us back to Hanoi city. Perhaps it was because it was a 1 day tour, that we did not take in enough sites of Halong Bay which did not made it that enjoyable. If you have the time to spare, you might want to opt for a 2 day Halong Bay tour. Taking a 1 day tour was exhausting, considering you spent about 10 hours travelling to and fro to Halong Bay.

Hoan Kiem Lake

'Lake Of The Restored Sword' or the Hoan Kiem Lake is one of the most scenic spots in Vietnam. Closely knit with its mythology, with a nice story about how the lake got its name (in the 15th century during the Ming Chinese invasion, general Le Loi was presented with a holy sword. With the help of this sword he expelled the Chinese from Thang Long, present-day of Hanoi and proclaimed himself as King Le Thai To.), this place is also a spot for most public celebrations in Vietnam. Situated in the Old Quarter this lake is a great place to stop by and gain a foothold in Hanoi. Much of the city's culture, fashion and food surrounds this lake.

About Hoàn Kiếm

The Hoan Kiem distict is where the old quarter is located. You are able to explore the area by foot but I would strongly recommend you have a map on hand because we got lost several times as the streets look the same. If you are looking for food, cafes, shopping and the night market, this is the place to be. Our hotel was located in this district and it was so convenient because you can get food pretty much at your door step.
