Hanoi Walking Tour by Night

Hanoi is a city with so many unique things to do at night, and is unlike any other capital in Southeast Asia or the even the world. While it won’t win over many plaudits for its nightclubs, there are a multitude of fun and interesting things to see and places to go.    Part of what makes Hanoi so interesting is the differences between each district.

Instead of sitting at hotel’s lobby reading magazines or sealing yourself in your room, just spending few hours to explore the exclusiveness and differences of Hanoi city tour by night.  We spotted the City View Cafe which has a balcony. Perfect way to have an overlooking view of the city at night! Then we decided to spend the rest of the evening discovering the bustling nightlife in Hanoi’s Old Quarter.  We also tried sample from popular Vietnamese foods, including pho and nem chua ran. 

This junction in the centre of the Old Quarter is the absolute classic night time activity in Hanoi. You really haven’t seen the city until you have spent a few hours soaking up the atmosphere and maybe sinking a few beers at the most famous Beer Hoi (Fresh Beer) spot in Vietnam. Several shophouses have plastic stools spilling out onto the streets, with beers being served for as little as VND10,000 (less than US$1) and street vendors serving steamed peanuts, beef jerky and other exotic snacks.
