Hanoi Holidays

The capital of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, Hanoi borders the mighty Red River. A handsome city of tree-lined boulevards, temples, lakes, parks and a hectic, vibrant and bustling old colonial centre, Hanoi’s charm lies in the preservation of a distinct North Vietnamese culture and way of life very different to that in the south of the country. Visit Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum, his house in the compound of the former Presidential Palace, and nearby One Pillar Pagoda which was originally built during the 11th century AD then head to the wonderful Temple of Literature. Dedicated to Confucius, the temple is almost 1,000 years old. The highlight of Hanoi though is the old quarter – an area that has remained largely intact and home to historic buildings, winding streets, markets and restaurants. Pettitts have led the way in designing tailor-made holidays and tours to Vietnam for over 25 years.
