Hanoi City walk (English) – Tràng Tiền street and surrounding area
July 25 @ 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM70,000VND
(this walk is one that we run often and have chosen it for July as it has a lot of shade on route so good for a hot sunny morning)
Tràng Tiền and surrounding roads such as Hàng Bài, Bà Triệu, Hàng Khay etc. are familiar to most of us. As we stroll these streets we will touch on the area’s development from the early days of Hanoi through the French period to the present time, hear some of its eclectic stories and history, notes on theatre and the cinema and the former ‘lives’ of familiar and not so familiar buildings. Hopefully you will discover things you didn’t know about these well-known streets and buildings.
Our simple but detailed route will take us from the steps of the Opera House, down Tràng Tiền towards Hoàn Kiếm lake, into Hàng Bài, towards Hàm Long and back up to Bà Triệu and Hàng Khay with a few interesting hidden diversions on the way.
Gather 2pm ready to start 2.10pm– we meet on the steps of the opera house and we end outside Trang Tien plaza.
