What you can expect

You will get to experience a full day in Hanoi like a real local! You will engage in daily activities, taste local food, special dishes and drinks, and enjoy both the urban and suburban side of Hanoi. You will get to enjoy the busy and peaceful, the Old Quarter and the modern.

In the morning, we will visit the Sword Lake and participate in a laugh yoga class or other activities like dancing, aerobic, taiji with locals for early birds because people only do exercise around 6 or 7 am.

After this, we will discover the Old Quarter. At a very beautiful and traditional cafe, I will teach you some Vietnamese words such as hello, thank you, and how to ask for directions and negotiate for a lower price! After the Vietnamese lesson, you can survive in Vietnam.

We will go to a local market to see what Vietnamese people often buy to make the food. At lunch, I will show you a one-of-a-kind restaurant in Hanoi and what locals eat regularly.

In the afternoon, we have a bicycle tour around West Lake and Long Bien Bridge and the suburb near Red River. So make sure that you can ride a bike more than 1 hour in Hanoi traffic!

Hello, my name is Thuan, you can call me Julie. I am a young Vietnamese girl and I absolutely love my city! I want to develop cross cultural understanding between Vietnam and the rest of the world by giving foreign tourists an insight into the local life of our country. More than all, I would like to help you fully enjoy your trip in Hanoi."
