Places to see in Hanoi

 Places to see in Hanoi, things to do in Hanoi Vietnam

1.      Temple of Literature (Van Mieu)

 

 

Originally built in 1070 in the Ly dynasty, the temple is a shrine to Confucius and his disciples responsible for spreading his teachings. In 1484, Van Mieu became a place to memorialize the most brilliant scholars of the nation. For any scholar or student, this temple is visited often by tourists who wish to see the first university of Vietnam and ask for blessings in their studies and quests for knowledge.

 

2.      National Fine Arts Museum

 

 

The rich legacy and colorful tradition of Vietnam and its capital, Hanoi is best reflected through the six national museums. Fine Arts Museum in Hanoi occupies a significant position among the six national museums as it traces the origin of artistic culture in Vietnam and presents a promising account of the development of Vietnam's artistic fervor. It exhibits approximately 10.000 art works in 16 showrooms segmented according to the divisions and arranged chronologically.

 

3.      Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum & Ho Chi Minh museum

 

 

Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum fronts Ba Dinh Square, a manicured patch of turf where Ho Chi Minh delivered Vietnam's declaration of independence in 1945. Ho Chi Minh was a  Vietnamese Communist revolutionary and statesman who was prime minister (1946–1955) and president (1945–1969) of the  Democratic Republic of Vietnam (North Vietnam). H? Chí Minh's embalmed body is on display in a granite mausoleum modeled after Lenin's Tomb in Moscow. This is similar to other Communist leaders. The mausoleum in Hanoi is dedicated to his life and work.

 

4.      One Pillar Pagoda

 

 

The One Pillar Pagoda (Vietnamese: Chua Mot Cot, formally Dien Huu Tu, which litterally means “long lasting happiness and good luck”) is a historic Buddhist temple in Hanoi. The One-Pillar Pagoda reflects the architectural splendour that the country has grown.  It was built of wood on a single stone pillar 1.25 m in diameter, and it is designed to resemble a lotus blossom, which is a Buddhist symbol of purity, since a lotus blossoms in a muddy pond. Today's structure can be just called the replica of the original pagoda, which was a large building. Locals believe that if you pray here, it will invoke well-beings and prosperity.


5.     Army Museum

The museum is arranged in a series of galleries that start with the period of Chinese colonisation, through to the French period, and then on to the American War and more recent skirmishes. The displays are generally well done and sometimes fascinating with more than the usual collection of guns, spears, and ammo, as well as a good deal of photojournalism and historical background provided in English. However, it’s the outdoor exhibits that really define this museum with aircraft, tanks, bombs, and big guns, some with signs indicating just how many of which enemy the piece took out. The centrepiece is a huge pyramid that has been put together by an artist out of the wreckage of a B-52, F-111 and a French transport plane - all of which were shot down.


6.      Hoan Kiem Lake (Sword Lake )

 

 

Hoan Kiem Lake, smack in the downtown core, is a large lake surrounded by urban landscape, roads, businesses, walkways; it’s a central gathering place in the center of the city. People come here to socialize, to talk, to do business, and relax a little. Some other places of interest here that you can explore include the “Turtle Tower” and the Ngoc Son Pagoda. The temple is located basically on the north east side of the lake and is easily recognized by the colorful two towered gateway that serves as it entranceway. The gate itself is known as Tam Quan or “Three Passage Gate” and it leads to The Huc Bridge, the infamous red lacquered bridge that is so often associated with modern day Ha Noi.


7.    St. Joseph's Cathedral

 

 

St. Joseph's Cathedral, which anchors one of Hanoi's most touristy streets, offers a glimpse into a bygone era. Speckles of light still dance through stained glass work, leaving a kaleidoscope of color on the towers, which stretch toward the sky. Its doors first swung open in 1886, during the earliest days of colonial rule, and the cathedral still holds mass twice daily. The building remembers the Notre Dame in Paris.


8.    Hanoi ’s Old Quarter

After all, the history of Hanoi goes back over 2,000 years, and the Old Quarter in particular retains an ambiance that gives one insight into the past as well as the present. The area of Hanoi's ancient streets is rather like a triangle. Hanoi's Old Quarter was originally arranged with each street selling one category of goods (many of the street names represent the goods sold, such as Silver Street, Paper Street or Silk Street.) This came from a village tradition of unity where craftsmen worked in the same trade and therefore the artisans guilds (phuongs) make up what is known as the 36 Streets. Traditionally, the street engaged in both production of and the commercial sales of the goods.

 

 

9.   The Museum of Ethnology

 

 

This is one of the best museums in Vietnam, located in the western suburbs of the city. If you're interested in learning more about the 54 ethnic minorities populating Vietnam's hinterlands, make the jaunt out to this sprawling compound (go by cab or moto). Vietnam's different ethnic groups, their history, and customs are explained in photos, videos, and displays of clothing and daily implements. The best part of this museum lies outside in its grounds as it's here you'll find some fine examples of minority group housing. These include the towering peak of a thatched Banhar communal home, an Ede longhouse, and other houses from the Cham, Viet, Hmong, Hanhi, Yao and Tay people. A wonderful museum that shouldn't be missed.

 

10.  Thang Long Water Puppet Theater

The Thang Long Water Puppet Theatre is an institution in Vietnam, a cultural experience that completes any visitor's trip to Hanoi. You can see water puppet performance  with the accompaniment of a traditional orchestra and narration in English. In this theater the 1,000-year-old stories invented by farmers during the Red River’s rainy season are recreated several times a day. Puppeteers, hidden backstage and standing thigh-high in a pool of water that extends onto the stage, expertly maneuver long sticks to make lacquered wooden marionettes skip, splash and frolic across a shallow pool.
