Good Morning Hanoi
Start the day the local way, experiencing Hanoi's authentic culture as the city wakes up.
Early morning is the best way to take in the pulsating ancient heart of Hanoi and this experience begins at 5.30am. It's an early start but one that is well-worth it! Head to Long Bien market, the biggest fruit and vegetable wholesale market in North Vietnam. Nowhere else in Hanoi exemplifies Vietnamese life better than Long Bien market. Witness buyers crowding around open-back trucks, money counters holding court over their stalls, motorbikes weaving down aisles and other mind-boggling scenes of daily life.
Then take a stroll around Hoan Kiem Lake, the heart of Hanoi. Pass by groups of Hanoians partaking in daily exercise such as gymnastics, martial arts and aerobics. Take a moment to look around and see signs of the city coming to life. Enjoy this silent slower pace that occurs before the start of Hanoi's incessant traffic and honking horns.
Move to peaceful garden and join in a Tai Chi class under the guidance of a local teacher, discover the slow movements of this popular martial art before heading to a popular local restaurant for a typical Vietnamese breakfast of Pho, a traditional noodle soup bursting with flavour.
End the morning at a local shop overlooking the lake to sample Vietnamese coffee like the way locals do. Try a sweet iced coffee or opt for a slow-brewed hot java while enjoying people watching in this scenic location.
