Hanoi

The capital of Vietnam, Hanoi has bounded back from the effects of war, and today serves as a bustling commercial and cultural hub bursting at the seams.
Old Quarter and Vietnamese Women's Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Popular historic sites such as Temple of Literature & National University and Hoa Lo Prison are in your itinerary. Spend the 10th (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, look for gifts at Le Chalet Cafe, and contemplate the waterfront views at Lake of the Restored Sword (Hoan Kiem Lake).
