Itinerary

Day 1 : Welcome to Hanoi

Welcome to the land of dragons, Vietnam. Upon arrival to Noi Bai Airport, our driver will greet you and transfer you to the city center to the Pan Pacific. Set between the charming Truc Bach and West Lakes to offer you a respite from the chaos, the atmosphere of the Old Quarter is just minutes away, transporting you to a place somewhere between ‪‎Hanoi’s glamourous past and new modernity.

Enjoy the day free at leisure to acquaint yourself with the capital, immersing yourself in the sights and sounds of your surrounding area. The Tran Quoc Buddhist Pagoda and Quan Thanh Taoist Temple are just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel, while the Summit rooftop bar on the Pan Pacific’s 20th floor offers some of the best sunset views in the entire city.

Day 2 : Wander down the labyrinth-like alleys of the Old Quarter in Hanoi

Dive into the history of Hanoi by visiting the iconic One Pillar Pagoda, designed to resemble a blooming lotus flower, commissioned by the legendary King Ly Thai Tho in 1049. Just a stone’s throw away lies the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, a monument and tribute to Ho Chi Minh, the “uncle” of modern Vietnam, as well as his preserved stilt house and a small museum dedicated to his life. The mausoleum is closed every October and November, as well as every Monday and Friday throughout the year.

Pass by Vietnam’s first university, Quoc Tu Giam, otherwise known as the Temple of Literature. The grounds offer a quiet oasis in the center of Hanoi and will show you an interesting glimpse into the cultural elite’s past, dating back from 1076.

After lunch, brave the labyrinth of streets dubbed the “Old Quarter”, famous to international guests and locals alike due to its chaotic but photogenic and charming nature. Visit the 36 streets by cyclo as you meander past bamboo, silver, silk, gold, and fruit sellers.
