Visit an everyday market that’s famous for its delicious snacks. Watch locals come and go and take a peek at the delicious meals they’ve ordered. Wander down the market with its many stalls to surround yourself with the best ingredients that Vietnamese dishes are made of. You might even pick up a secret recipe or two!
Stroll around the countless old apartment blocks to get a real feel for what a local neighborhood is like. See how families of at least two generations harmoniously share a home. The infamous “tiger cages” might amaze you, so feel free to ask your local host all about them! Stumble upon one of the many recreational squares with playgrounds, bbq spots and fire pits to burn lucky money. It doesn’t take long to realize why locals love coming here! Don’t forget to check out the local kindergarten with parents buzzing by on scooters to pick up their kids.
Time for some tranquil park vibes! Do as the locals do to unwind and enjoy a walk through a lusciously green park with a beautiful lake. Catch the occasional smile from salsa dancing locals and kids running around freely. Nestled on a peaceful side street lies the Buddhist temple of love that can’t be missed!
Ready for some more surprises? Your guide can take you to a secret little garden gate that leads to an abandoned temple! Covered with plants and trees, this unique hidden gem feels like a jungle! Enjoy the peace and quiet before zig-zagging your way through colorful alleyways, passing a typical Hanoian graveyard, barber shops, butchers and internet cafes.
Is that the smell of coffee? Yes, it is! Top off your tour with an egg-cellent egg coffee at a hidden local cafe. It truly feels like a secret garden here!
