Truly Local Morning
Hanoi is recently voted the most attractive destination in the whole world. The number of visitors has increased day by day, and therefore the city has been so much more touristic. Visitors can be so scared by the traffic, noise and crowds during the rest of the day, they won’t be patient enough or have the opportunity to see the really authentic parts of the capital.
If you can get up early just for a day, you will definitely have an unforgettable experience – the sleeping beauty of Hanoi. The amount of time is reasonable – after the special trip, you can get back to the hotel and have some rest before doing other trips.
