Hanoi-Hill tribes

by kyleaz

We loved Vietnam so much I'm planning to go back and spend more time there.Does anyone know of a hill tribe that is about a 2 hour drive from Hanoi? A friend was letting me about it. It is not in the Sa Pa area.
What other things are their to do in Hanoi area? I'm sure we missed so much.

by pfsmalo

The closest hill tribes are probably in Mai Chau to the N.W. of Hanoi, but may be a bit further than 2 hours. Out that way you can also visit Tam Coc, Keng Ga and Cuc Phuong National Park.

I think it might be Mai Chau too, its about a 2hour drive and very nice. If you go, do a homestay experience.
What pfsmalo has mentioned is worth seeing too

Re: Hanoi-Hill tribes

by thuyphan

It's about 160km far from Hanoi to Mai Chau, so it may take you more than 3 hours to get there. Moreover, the way to Mai Chau is not the same with ways to any places in Ninh Binh as said above.
Maybe in the way back, go by another way, you can visit Kim boi hot spring.
Hope that hepls

We are a little older and not really in to trekking or home stays. I've been very happy with the nice little hotels we stayed at in the past.
I'll have to check on a map were the places you all have been so kind to suggest.

nobody said that there were hill tribes in Ninh Binh. That was in answer to the question "what else to see in that direction".

Travel Tips for Hanoi

The Other Side of the Tracks

by pez

Densely populated, people live in ways I never imagined. On this street, near Tran Phu, families have most of their house on one side of the tracks, but kitchen and toilet facilities on the other side.

Sports for early birds

by King_Golo

Vietnamese people are early birds. Vietnamese people are badminton cracks. You should know this before!
So if you're interested in watching sports get up early and visit Ho Hoan Kiem or Lenin Park. It is not uncommon to see people playing badminton as fast as tennis pros early in the morning! The same is true for all those who prefer a less exhausting sport: Tai Chi. In the morning and the evening, the shores of Ho Hoan Kiem are full of mostly elderly people working out. One is surprised how fit they are: Lithe and lissom without any signs of being exhausted!
Btw, on the right side of Ho Hoan Kiem, in the little park near the post office, you can sometimes come across a woman who seems to train a whole group. She's got a radio with crappy music and the whole group does the same moves which she tells them. Looks like aerobics a la Vietnam!

FLAG TOWER & you can visit the Army Museum

by balhannah

This Flag Tower was built in 1812, and was used by French troops as an observation tower and communication stations.
It was built on the southern end of the citadel, much of which was destroyed towards the end of the 19th century.

It has three platforms and a tower. You can walk inside and get some views over the city and the Army Museum's courtyard with its display of war vehicles.
The tower receives sunlight through 36 flower-shaped and six fan-shaped windows.


* By Cyclo...I went on my city cyclo tour
* Walk.....Using the Ho Hoan Kiem as the starting point, walk west along Hang Khay, which becomes Trang Thi after a while. Then you reach a split in the road; the right branch is Dien Bien Phu Street. Take that street, crossing the railway track and continuing on until you see the Army Museum on your right, and the triangular park with the statue of Lenin on your left. Cot Co Flag Tower is just behind the Army Museum.

Cosy bar

by chipsweet12 about Papillon

From the outside, the place looks pretty cool, like a prison (as its name has already suggested) but inside, it's a complete atmostphere: very cosy! With the dimmed lights and very nice sofas, it's a perfect place for a date! Well, perfect when there's not many people there (around 8pm is fine).

If you want to have a quiet night, this is the place to go. No dress code although I think casual is just fine, you don't need to get too dressed up

Walking around Hanoi

by victorwkf

One of the best way to explore Hanoi is by walking around the city, especially during the cooler months between November and February. This is because most of the main attractions are located within walking distance of the famous Ho Hoan Kiem (Lake of Restored Sword). For example, the Old Quarter is the northern part of this lake and the French Quarter is the southern part of this lake. Walking also enable you to really feel the sights, sound and smell of Hanoi and lots of photography opportunities. The streets of Hanoi are also quite safe to walk around, you just need to be careful of the chaotic traffic (see the warnings section of this VT page). However, there are some attractions which you need to get a taxi to reach e.g. Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum & surroundings, Temple of Literature and Temple of Ethnology.
