Good place to start a walking tour of Hanoi as its just a short stroll down to the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. It is a large Temple and has the second largest bronze statue in Vietnam.

Next to West Lake, it is the best temple I've visited in Hanoi. It was very crowded because I visited during Lunar New Year Period. There're beautiful gardens.

Your list is a very good itinerary for Hanoi, but you should not miss Hoa Lo, often called 'Hanoi Hilton' - the former French security prison, which was also used for the US prisoners of war. It is a very interesting museum... More
