I was not going to climb it but my curiosity got the best of me. Glad I did. Fantastic climb inside the tower. Only wish I could have gone higher. Great view of the museum next door. A must do if your in Hanoi. Liked to have seen it 100 years ago.
One of Hanoi symbols. Nice tower you can go upstair and look around . See the Vietnamese flag weaving make you feel the Vietnamese atmosphere!
An interesting structure, with small arches and steep stairs. Three levels. No good view of the city, only of the vehicles in the war museum.
This is located on the grounds at the Vietnam Military History Museum. Built from 1805 to 1812 during Nguyen Dynasty. It has flown the National flag 24/7/365 since 10-10-1954. The hours you can see it are the hours of the museum.
Having a great time and take a picture of Sưa flower
Good views from the top - check opening times before going. Interesting bits of history on Vietnam's long struggle against colonialism.
