Day 2:   B, L, D

Full day city tour of Hanoi including: Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum - In the tradition of Lenin, Stalin and Mao, the final resting place of Ho Chi Minh is a glass sarcophagus set deep in the bowels of a monumental edifice that has become a site of pilgrimage. One Pillar Pagoda - The One Pillar Pagoda, built of wood on a single stone pillar 1.25 meters in diameter, is designed to resemble a lotus blossom, symbol of purity, rising out of a sea of sorrow. The One Pillar Pagoda is on Street Ong Ich Khiem near Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum. Ho Chi Minh Stilt House – behind Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum is a stilt house where Ho lived on and off from 1958 to 1969. The house is built in the style of Vietnam’s ethnic minorities and has been preserved just as Ho left it. It‘s set in a well-tended garden next to a carp-filled pond. Just how much time Ho actually spent here is questionable – the house would have made a tempting target for US bombers had it been suspected that Ho could be found here. Temple of Literature - is a pleasant retreat from the street of Hanoi. The temple constitutes a rare example of well-preserved traditional Vietnamese architecture and is will worth a visit. Army Museum – Soviet and Chinese weaponary supplied to the North are on display alongside French and US-made weapons captured in the France-Viet Minh War and the Vietnam War. The centerpiece is a Soviet-built MiG-21 jet fighter triumphant amid the wreckage of French aircraft downed at Dien Bien Phu and a US F-111. The display included scale models of various epic battles of Vietnam’s long military history, including Dien Bien Phu and the capture of Saigon. Hoan Kiem Lake – is an enchanting body of water right in the heart of Hanoi. Legend has it that in the Mid-15th century, Heaven gave Emperor Ly Thai To (Le Loi) a magical sword, which he used to drive the Chinese out of Vietnam. One day after the war, while-out boating, he came upon a giant golden tortoise swimming on the surface of the water: the creature grabbed the sword and disappeared into the depths of the lake. Since that time, the lake has been know as “Lake of the Restored Sword” because the tortoise restored the sword to its divine owners. The tiny Tortoise Pagoda, is on an islet in the middle of the lake and is often used as an emblem of Hanoi. Ngoc Son Temple - also known as Jade Mountain, found in the 18th century, is on an island in the northern part of Hoan Kiem Lake.
