Hanoi is a place full of interesting places to discover. How great would it be to step out of the touristic bubble and visit some great places in Hanoi under the guidance of a local host? By visiting the Old Quarter, we more or less mean … wander off and get lost. The best way to explore this hectic, fascinating and bubbly district of Hanoi is by simply going with the flow and seeing where you will end up! Also, the Hoa Lo Prison is an interesting place to visit. According to its long history. First, the French colonists used it to lock up political prisoners, under the name of ‘Maison Centrale’, after which during the Vietnam war, the place was used by North Vietnam to lock up American prisoners. This is also where the sneering nickname ‘the Hanoi Hilton’ comes from. In addition, thousands of people are eager to visit the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, so make sure to be there on time! It is an important place to understand the importance of Uncle Ho for the Vietnamese people. A strict dress code applies, so wear long trousers and a shirt or sweater with sleeves.
