The capital of Vietnam, Hanoi has bounded back from the effects of war, and today serves as a bustling commercial and cultural hub bursting at the seams.
Old Quarter and Hoa Lo Prison will appeal to history buffs. When in Hanoi, make a side trip to see Truc Lam An Tam Zen Monastery in Tam Dao, approximately 1h 45 min away. Pamper yourself for a day on the 28th (Fri) at some of the top local wellness centers. On the 29th (Sat), spend an adventurous day with a kayaking and canoeing tour. There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Temple of Literature & National University, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, get engrossed in the history at Vietnam Museum of Ethnology, and contemplate the waterfront views at West Lake.

For maps, traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Hanoi trip itinerary site .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Noi Bai International Airport. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
