Your tour begins with pickup from your central Hanoi hotel in time for an 8am or 1pm departure (depending on tour option chosen). After meeting your guide and small group of up to 10 people, set out to explore Hanoi’s shopping hotspots.
Start with a visit to Hong Ngoc, a non-profit collective that provides vocational training and jobs to disabled people. Spend some time browsing the store and shopping for traditional handicrafts and souvenirs including silk products, gemstone jewelry, marble sculptures, clothing, and handbags.
Continue to the Thu Huong Lacquer Ware Shop, where you’ll have chance to watch demonstrations of the traditional art of lacquer making, and shop for beautifully decorated homewares.
Next, step out on a walking tour of Hanoi’s atmospheric Old Quarter, stopping to browse the local markets, souvenir shops, and art galleries. Finally, stroll down the elegant boulevards of the French Quarter, where you’ll have time for shopping along busy Trang Tien.
After a morning or afternoon shopping in Hanoi, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
