Learn about the intellectual and religious heritage of Hanoi at Van Mieu - Quoc Tu Giam, the Temple of Literature, an imperial school which was built during the dynasty of King Ly almost a thousand years ago.

Stand at the food of the Pagoda But Thap, among the oldest pagodas in Vietnam, then see Dai Nghien, a carved, stone ink stand that rests on the backs of a trio of frogs. Visit the red-painted Huc Bridge, and take a cyclo ride through the winding streets of the Old Quarter, one of Hanoi’s most atmospheric neighborhoods.
