A more adventurous way to discover Hanoi’s local sights and attractions is on a bike. With your local host as your guide, you can start your tour at the scenic Hoan Kiem Lake. Located near the city’s Old Quarter, the lake is a favorite hangout spot among locals.
After enjoying the views of the lake, you can head over to the bustling streets of the Old Quarter. You can drop by at some of the city’s famous attractions such as the St. Joseph’s Cathedral, Hanoi Opera House, Bach Ma temple, etc. End your tour at the Don Xuan market where you can share a local beer with your host while observing how local sellers go about their daily chores at the market.
