Old Quarters

Old Quarters

Explore Hanoi your way with our collection of self-guided walks combined with guided walks led by local experts. Our flexible 72-hour pass allows travellers to explore the cultural, social and political dynamics of the Vietnamese capital and hear the fascinating stories behind each landmark.

Meet the local expert at the Water Puppet Theatre, the starting point of the tour. Meander through the bustling Old Quarter and admire the historical Long Bien Bridge, which connects the city of Hanoi to the district of Hoan Kiem. Long Bien is the oldest of five bridges that cross the Red River. Experience the exotic aromas of Lan Ong, also known as “Herbal Medicine Street” where stalls are lined with traditional herbs, leaves and powders that are said to have unique healing properties.

This guided walk departs on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 8 am and 1 pm.
