Hanoi City Walk (English): a Boxing day walk – Lê Duản street & surrounding area

December 26, 2020 @ 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM


as of 23 Dec 2 spaces available

Join us for a Boxing Day morning stroll down Lê Duản street and the surrounding area. Starting at Cửa Nam we explore the history of the former south gate, the nearby streets and stories of the area, find out who was the ‘French Lady with the flared skirt, where were parasols were traded, which is one of Hanoi’s original Phở gà stalls, what used to be where ‘Quan An Ngon’ is, where was the Mandarin road, what was originally on the site of Hanoi railway station,  who was Lê Duản the man himself ..…..

Most of what we talk about has sadly long gone so we supplement with memories, stories and photos of what hopefully will be an eclectic whistle-stop tour through history of the Lê Duản area.

Starting point: Chợ Cửa Nam

End: Ga Hà Nội (Hanoi railway station)
