Experience Hanoi Like a Local - Full Day Tour
Head away from the tourist sites to spend the day exploring Hanoi from a local point of view. Visit bustling markets, stroll through winding alleyways and enjoy lunch with a local family to learn about day-to-day life in Vietnam's capital.
You will start your day travelling to the south of Hanoi, where you will reach one of the characterful suburbs rarely visited by tourists. Here you will visit a local market, packed tightly with stalls which sell a variety of fresh produce amongst other products.
Continue on foot and wind your way through narrow alleys, soaking up the sites, sounds and smells along the way. Stop for a coffee by a nearby lake, and chat to your guide about their daily life. Pass by a beautiful pagoda before reaching the home of a local family. Here you can enjoy a home-cooked lunch in this typical Hanoian house, chatting to your hosts as you dine.
After lunch continue your walk to another pretty lake. Before returning to your hotel you will visit a more unusual market, usually only frequented by locals.
