Hoang Dieu Street

The weather of Hanoi is usually cool in the early morning, and fiercely hot up to 38 degrees (in summer) in middle of the noon and lasting until about 3pm. Therefore, you should choose the time on your own initiative to make sure that the tour will not cause fatigue and become integral. Walking in the dawn of the early morning or in the sunset is both wonderful!

When taking a walk, not only can you enjoy the sights, feel relaxed, chat, but the most important thing is that you can also mix with the current of life of Hanoi people. Because, walking is the closest way you can do to feel about a city!
