Things to do in Hanoi

Temple of Literature - about 2km west of Hoan Kiem Lake, the Temple of Literature is a rare example of well-preserved traditional Vietnamese architecture.

Founded in 1070 by Emperor Ly Thanh Tong, the temple is dedicated to Confucius (Khong Tu) and honours Vietnam’s finest scholars and men of literary accomplishment. Vietnam’s first university was established here in 1076, though at this time entrance was only granted to those of noble birth. After 1442, a more egalitarian approach was adopted and gifted students from all over the nation headed to Hanoi to study the principles of Confucianism, literature and poetry.

Hoan Kiem Lake - the epicentre of old Hanoi, Hoan Kiem Lake is an enchanting body of water. Ngoc Son Temple sits on an island in Hoan Kiem Lake. The Thap Rua (Turtle Tower), on an islet near the southern end, is topped with a red star and is often used as an emblem of Hanoi. Every morning at around 6am local residents practise traditional t’ai chi on the shore.

Vietnam Museum of Ethnology-  is one of the country’s premier museums. Occupying a fine modern structure, the terrific collection features well-presented tribal art, artefacts and everyday objects gathered from across the nation. For anyone with an interest in Vietnam’s minorities, it’s an essential visit – though it is located way out in the suburbs.
