Best places to see in Vietnam

Hanoi Temple of Literature
This 11th-century temple hosted Vietnam’s first university. Today, students visit its quaint courtyards for good luck, patting the stone turtle statues that carry memorials to past scholars. Circle the placid Well of Heavenly Clarity and trace wafts of incense to the House of Ceremonies, where traditional music gently chimes. It’s enough to clear a case of writer’s block.

Old City Gate
Built in 1749, this iconic arch is the last standing gateway of the ancient Thang Long citadel. Now, it’s your portal to the sights, scents and sounds of modern-day Hanoi. Dodge the melee of mopeds that buzz about you like bees, and snap a selfie under the moss-covered arch. Then mosey on through to the Dong Xuan Market and browse its colourful spice racks and flower stalls.

Ben Thanh Market
Shopping Areas
This market has your senses working overtime. Once inside, you’ll be immersed in a maelstrom of chaotic commerce. At every turn, vendors reel in shoppers, and heated haggling echoes all around. The objects on sale cram every surface – everything from dried fruit to lacquered vases and silken sarongs, from counterfeit footy shirts to snakes in jars. See what takes your fancy!
Accommodations near Ben Thanh Market
Reunification Palace
This presidential palace was the setting for one of 20th-century Vietnam’s most iconic images. On April 30th 1975, Viet Cong tanks crashed through the gates, ripping up the lawn with their caterpillar tracks. The storming of the palace signalled the end of the conflict, and the black-and-white images of the tanks rolling in will forever embody the end of war.
Accommodations near Reunification Palace
Hoa Lo Historical Prison
There’s not much left of this prison, but it’s enough to give you the chills. Built by the French in the 1880s, it quickly became a symbol of colonial oppression. Visit the dark, dank cells and creepy guillotine room for a stark reminder of man’s inhumanity to man. Then browse the collection of U.S. POW items from a time when Hoa Lo was sarcastically dubbed the “Hanoi Hilton”.
Accommodations near Hoa Lo Historical Prison
Opera House
Nothing embodies faded European opulence quite like a 19th-century opera house. This one certainly does the job. The entrance arch is bedecked with neoclassical touches like cherubs and muses, while inside, creamy stucco plastering is bordered with plush red seating. Check listings for upcoming shows, from grandiose recitals to earthy local dance performances.
