Day 01 Hanoi

Upon arrival in Noi Bai International Airport, you will be greeted by the local guide and transferred to your hotel, the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi in Hanoi, Vietnam's capital. It ranks amongst the world’s most attractive and interesting cities and was first the capital of Vietnam in A.D. 1010, and though the nation’s capital moved to Hue under the Nguyen dynasty in 1802, the city continued to flourish after the French took control in 1888. In 1954, after the French departed, Hanoi was declared Vietnam’s capital once again. The remnants of over 1,000 years of history are still visible here, with that of the past few hundred years wonderfully preserved. After checking into the hotel, you have time to spend at your leisure. There’s plenty to do and see or you may choose to find a spot on the lakeside and just watch the world go by - Hanoi is a truly unique city. In the evening you can choose from one of the many restaurants near Hoan Kiem Lake or in the Old Quarter. Hanoi is also a fascinating city to enjoy an alfresco drink.
