Hanoi City walk (English) – Tràng Tiền street and surrounding area
November 10, 2018 @ 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM70,000VND
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 some 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 9.20am ready to start 9.30am – we meet on the steps of the opera house and we end outside Trang Tien plaza.
For those who want to stay on for lunch we will have some bún bò nam bộ in a nearby eatery (additional cost but cheap)
