French quarter tour hanoi with an

Hanoi, Vietnam

The Activity


  • The history of the old historical buildings in the French Quarter will be unlocked
  • See the influence of the different foreign cultures who occupied Vietnam
  • French and French Indochine architecture
  • Duration: 2,5 hours
  • The minimum number of people is 2 and the maximum is 6


This tour is all about unlocking the city’s secrets, and this tour is no exception. The influence of the European occupation is still present in today’s Hanoi, especially in the grid of streets south of Hoan Kiem Lake. You can find a mix of ancient pagodas, classic European architecture, international modern architecture (avant-garde, Art Deco) as well as a fusion between Asian and French architecture. Vietnamese culture has been influenced by these different styles for centuries and it shows an ideological shifts in our culture. If you are interested in history and architecture then I would love to invite you for this walk!
