top5 Shopping in Hanoi

Before, the shopping scene of Hanoi was only about the bustling street markets and colonial shop houses. Nowadays, there are a growing number of fancy boutiques and shopping malls scattered all over the city, thanks to its fast-paced modernization. When shopping in Hanoi, make sure you check out the traditional markets spread all over the city and ask your local host to teach you the art of haggling.

Visit the Tea Growing Province with Local Students

We spent an incredible day with Thanh!! We have been here in south Asia for 2 months already and THIS was one of the highlights of our trip. Not only because it was fun to actually go to a tea farm and learn about the vietnamese tea culture, but also, spending the hole day with locals and talking about life, was really great. We felt really comfortable and everyone was sooo friendly, we couldn`t have asked for more. Really a must-do experience, and also you get to help students talk in english and practice.

Pasamos un dia increíble con Thanh. Llevamos dos meses recorriendo el sur de asia, y esta experiencia fue una de las mejores del viaje. No solo porque fue divertido visitar una granja de té, y aprender sobre esta parte de la cultura vietnamita, pero poder pasar el dia entero con locales y hablar de nuestras vidas, fue algo maravilloso. Nos sentimos extremadamente cómodos, todos nos trataron como en casa, muy amistosos. No podemos pedir mas!!! Increíble viaje y además ayudas a estudiantes a practicar su inglés!

East meets west on a motorbike around Hanoi

On March 15th we had a scooter tour in Hanoi with Brian and his colleague.
We discovered Hanoi with them and got so many impressions on this tour.
Thanks to them we visited places which we would never find in our own: fantastic coffee bar with an amazing egg coffee, had lunch in a very special small restaurant with excellent food. Brian impressed us with his knowledge about <hanoi and the vietnamese history.
We can highly recommend both our guides for a tour.
The atmosphere was very relaxed and we had a lot of fun! We would never ride a bike in hanoi ourselves, but with Brian and his colleague we felt save in every moment.
Thanks again to the team - we will come back for a different tour.
All the best!
Barbara and Alois

A customized trip with Hanoi Photography Tour Team

If anyone asks me what the most memorable experience in Hanoi was, I would definitely mention the Photography Tour. Kim and Binh were amazing tour guides with an excellent command of English and knowledge of the hidden jams of the city. We were able to visit the beautiful sites we would otherwise never have been aware of, and of course, at the end of the day, they sent us tons of professional photos to keep. Thank you again for the unforgettable tour.
