Top 8 Things to do in Hanoi, VIETNAM

If you’re planning a visit to Hanoi then make sure you check out this episode where we share our 8 top things to do in the city.

We start our journey in Old Quarter and make our way around some of the most popular attractions in Hanoi.

1. St. Joseph’s Cathedral
Address: 40 Nhà Chung, Hàng Trống, , Hà Nội, Vietnam
Hours: Monday – Sunday 8–11am, 2–5pm

2. Hanoi Train Street
Address: Trần Phú, Hàng Bông, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội 100000, Vietnam
Hours: Open 24/7 however we have read articles recently about how train street has since closed down so may no longer be able to be visited unfortunately!

3. Hanoi Night Market – Located in the Old Quarter
Address: Hàng Đào, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội 100000, Vietnam
Open on the weekend Only
Friday – Sunday 6pm–12am
Monday – Thursday – Closed

4. Thang Long Water Puppet Theatre
Address: 57B Đinh Tiên Hoàng, Hàng Bạc, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội 100000, Vietnam
Opening times are varied make sure you pay a visit early in the day to buy your ticket before they sell out. Don’t buy online as the prices are more than double. If you are planning on recording a video, you need to purchase an extra ticket that allows you to film.

Address: 2 Hùng Vương, Điện Bàn, Ba Đình, Hà Nội 100000, Vietnam

Hours – Varies by time of year and day off the week. It’s best to check with your hotel staff for when it’s opened for visiting though.

The general guide we found was:

Hours – Closed Monday and Friday and also closed during October and November.

– April – September: 8AM – 10.30AM Tues – Thu (weekends stays open till 11AM)
– December – March: 8AM – 11AM Tues – Thu (weekends stays open till 11.30AM)

If you want to see the resting place and mummified body of the revered Ho Chi Minh be sure to arrive before the crowds early morning around 8am to Ba Dinh Square and don’t forget to dress appropriately or risk getting pulled out of the long lines by security.

We hope you find this Hanoi travel guide of ours helpful for some of the best things to see and do in Hanoi. Hanoi is definitely a must-visit if you’re in Vietnam to get the full Vietnamese holiday experience.

    Hey Peter & Yen!! So great to see you guys and this is an awesome trip to Hanoi!! All these places you went to look like they were great tourist spots for sure. The St Joseph Cathedral was so huge and beautiful, and that Hanoi Train street was such a trip to see the train pass so close! The night market was awesome, and so was that cool iced dessert. The water puppet show looked too cool.. we would have loved that. Kiem Lake was so awesome that you got to see some small turtles in it. The fine art museum had some beautiful artwork in it and loved some of the sculptures and cool you got to see the Mausoleum of where Ho Chi Min lays to rest!! Thanks for taking us with you and much love! Awesome adventure! <3

    As an American that train track area is mindblowing. In the USA that area would have one thing written all over it: lawsuit. People falling on the tracks, getting hit by train, etc. Lawyers ruin everything.

  39. The water puppets were my fav in Hanoi. 🙂 The cultural museum i.e. Vietnam National Museum of History (not the nearby political museum) was also great. Just a walk around the Lake of the Restored Sword (Hoan Kiem Lake) is nice in the very late afternoon and evening.
