Tender ashore to board motor coaches for an approximate 3.5 hours overland journey to Hanoi. With glorious French colonial architecture and numerous lakes, Hanoi is the jewel of Vietnam's crown. The city is a blend of east and west with bicycle cluttered streets and a nation of people reluctant to join the frenetic atmosphere of their southern counterpart, opting for a more reserved and relaxed way of life.
Drive to the massive grey marble and granite Mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh, followed by a stop at the striking One Pillar Pagoda and Ho Chi Minh's exquisite stilted house. Next, visit the serene Temple of Literature, built in 1070 to honor the Chinese philosopher Confucius, before enjoying lunch at a famous hotel restaurant.
After lunch enjoy a touch of old Hanoi. Explore on foot the myriad of streets that were traditionally named after the tradesman that worked them, such as Tin Street, Silk Street and Grilled Fish Street, before spending a little time shopping.
Board your motor coach for your return to the ship.
