How long do I need in Hanoi??

by actressmelb

Hi everyone,

I'm heading to South east Asia in a number of days now! So soon! But I'm still a little unclear on how much time I should take in Hanoi before flying down to Krabi and Ko Phi Phi in Thailand.

I will be on a Vietnam tour with Gap Adventures (finish in Hanoi). This tour only takes a day trip to Ha Long Bay and my friend who did a similar tour opted to instead remain overnight on Ha Long Bay instead of staying in (unexciting?) Bai Chay and going back to Hanoi in the morning with the rest of the group. If I did this, I would only get one full day in Hanoi (by the time my overnight trip got back and taking the 3hour bus back to Hanoi the previous day.) What I would like to know is if anyone can advise me whether 1 full day and 2 nights in Hanoi is enough, or whether I should either skip overnight on Ha Long Bay OR if I do this should I extend my stay in Hanoi to 2days, 3 nights?

In terms of what to do in Hanoi , I'm told shopping is great, but I must bear in mind that I will be going back to Bangkok after Krabi for four full days of shopping! Does it compare?

This post is a bit confusing, so thankyou, thankyou to anyone who responds (and congratulations for even decoding my question!)

You might want to take a look at my Ha Noi page. My friend and I did a private tour of Vietnam a few years ago and I wrote it up, including all the places we visited. That way, you can cross check what you're seeing on your tour with what we did and 'fill in the gaps' so to speak.

We did a day out on Ha Long Bay and stayed overnight in Ha Long before returning to Ha Noi.

Hope this helps and have a great trip!

As said, a good idea to look at peoples pages on Hanoi to get an idea of what to see and do. I would extend my stay. Just click on the person's name above their photo, then Hanoi on their travel page, you will see that there is lots to do!

I would also try to extend my stay. Do 2 full days (at least) in Hanoi and a 2D/1N Halong Bay (overnight on boat). Vietnam is awesome and hopefully you love it as we did!

Travel Tips for Hanoi


by UScutie

-TAKE THE TOUR TO HA LONG BAY (belong to Hai Phong city ) or you can fly direct to Hai Phong and take a boat go to Ha Long bay.
-Must see all of attractions here,please don't miss,you will loss your half life if not see all of these.J/K.
1/Scorched Beach (Bai Chay)
Upon arriving in Ha Long city, the u will be driving along 'Bai Chay' or scorched beach. The sand on this stretch of beach is dark. And judging by the name the visitors may mistakenly think that this is due to the dry climate or lack of wind in this area. However, contrary to this interpretation, the area is quite pleasant during the summer and fall months and the temperature here is around 70 deg F. According to the locals, Bai Chay got its name long ago, based on another historical event. Bai Chay was once a forest. In 1287, the Mongols led by the great Truong Van Ho,(a Vietnamese name for this Mongolian general) attacked Vietnam and was driven back by general Tran Khanh Du. Many Mongolian ships were set afire and drifted to shore aided by high wind setting the forest on fire. Since then this stretch of beach became known as Bai Chay or scorched beach.
2/ Hang Dau Go (Wooden Stakes Cave)
Hang Dau Go is one of the most beautiful cave at Ha Long. The name, Dau Go or Giau Go, has direct ties to the history of Vietnam. According to the locals, while preparing for the Mongolian attacks in 1288, general Tran Hung Dao, sent a convoy to this area to cut wood from this region. Wooden stakes were then fashioned from the wood and hidden in Dau Go cave. The stakes were embedded in Bach Dang river to form a barrier against the attacking Mongols. According to legend, general Tran Hung Dao dealt a great blow to the Kublai Khan when he tricked the Mongolian army into chasing him deep up Bach Dang's channel. When the tide were down the enemies were stuck in these wooden stakes driven into the river bed. Dau Go was also the site where general Tran Khan Du hid his force while waiting for the Mongols led by Truong Van Ho in 1287.

Dau Go is located on a limestone islet 8 km south of Bai Chay. The islet itself stands 187 m above sea level.
3/Pelican Cave (Hang Bo Nau)
Bo Nau cave is not as deep and large. Looking out from the cave the visitor can enjoy the scenic beauty of Ha Long. The clear blue water with rocky formations rising forms a picturesque setting. Bo Nau is a compound word derived from two words, bo cau meaning pigeon and nau meaning brown. Bo Nau literally means brown pigeon. For some reason, many foreign translations refer to this cave as Pelican cave.
4/Cave of Awe (Hang Sung Sot)
Sung Sot cave is on the same island with Trinh Nu cave. The path to Sung Sot is quite steep and is lined with shady trees. The cave has 2 chambers. The outer chamber is square and is often referred to as the waiting room. The cave's ceiling is approximately 30 m high. The walls are almost perfectly smooth as if it was built by man. The walls generate a variety of colors that blend with the setting of the area.
5/Hang Trinh Nu (Virgin Cave)
Hang Trinh Nu or the Virgin is also known as Mid Gate cave. According to local lore, an old couple lived here long ago. The husband made a living fishing around the bay. They were very poor. They had only one daughter. She grew up to be a beautiful young woman, so beautiful that people from all around knew of her. There were many suitors and her reputation reached the local mandarin. The mandarin immediately sent his soldier to her home to capture her. She was forced to marry the old mandarin.

After much cajoling and threats the fair maiden still steadfastly refused. One day, she escaped from the mandarins home, however she was afraid to return home for fear of retaliation. After much thought, the maiden decided to go to Mid Gate cave to commit suicide. Her body turned into the stone statue lying atop a flat surface. Since then, Mid Gate cave became known as Virgin cave.
6/Dong Hang Hanh
Dong Hang Hanh tunnels through mount Quang Hanh 9 km from the township of Cam Pha. The tunnel and cave is approximately 2 km in length.

To visit this cave the visitors must take a small row boat to access the entrance. On the way the rower must maneuver through a variety of rock formation often so narrow that only one boat can fit through at a time.
7/Tuan Chau island:
Tuan Chau island or Sentinel Chau Island is 3 km west of Dau Go cave. The island is approximately 3 km2. This island is inhabited by people. The nurturing hands of humans have turned this island into a fertile farm producing vegetables and fruits for the outlying mining and fishing villages of Ha Long Bay FELT LIKE I'M IN A HEAVEN.HA LONG IS SO GORGEOUS and SO FRESH !

Hash House Harriers: Runners with a drinking probl

by hanno

The Hanoi Hash House Harriers, HHHH, meet every Saturday to run at different locations. Suitable for both runners and walkers, young and old, it is a great way to see locations that you wouldn't otherwise get to. Departure is usually from the Spotted Cow Pub (see Night Spots) on saturday afternoons. Fliers with exact departure times can be found in many hotels, and in the Spotted Cow.


by balhannah

Huu Tiep Lake, about a klm west of the Mausoleum is a nothing startling to look at.

ITS FAME IS............

The wreckage of an American B-52 Bomber, shot down during the Christmas period by North Vietnamese artillery in 1972 (when this whole area was undeveloped) has its remains still in the lake.

If you are a war veteran, then you may want to visit here, and try and picture what it was like in the past, when this area was not developed.
There's a partly submerged memorial plaque.

I came here on a city tour with my Cyclo driver.

LOCATION........just south of West Lake along Hoang Hoa Tham Rd., and a short walk down Lane 55 leading to the sight (a handwritten sign reads B-52 with an arrow).


by Sininen about Water Puppet Theater

Try to get seats as close to the stage as possible. I sat in the front row and had an excellent view and great possibilities to take photos as well. I got a few splashes of water on my clothes during the show, but who cares.

Of the 17 short shows I'd like to mention here:
The Dragon Dance which was great fun
Boat racing, another truly funny one
Legend of the Restored Sword, an interesting legend
Harvest festival which was about a native boy returning home
Unicorns playing with ball

They all were really great so it is difficult to choose just one. You will have to go and see it!

Tour buses - quick and convenient

by myspices

If you want to see Hanoi and you have a time constraint, suggest that you join a tour which will have a bus and tour guide that will take you to specific destinations of your tour package. Tour packages are reasonable in Hanoi but just ensure that the intineraries of your tour packages are explained to you clearly as to what is covered and what is not so as to avoid argument later between yourself and your tour agent.

The tour coaches/buses we have travelled in so are clean, with AC and comfortable. The buses/coaches are pretty new.
