This place is a relics museum, about the history about hanoi. But not too interesting. Just ordinary museum. Quite nice for taking picture.
Ancient and forbidden city of thang long. One of the UNESCO world heritage site. You can see many artifacts has been uncovered in this site. You can learn the great wisdom of ancient knowledge.
Beautiful sort of forbidden city. Big garden with old palace still standing intact. This place is used for graduation ceremony in my visit. Dozens of university students gathered here for their graduation ceremony. The area is quite big to do some walking.
Really wouldn't recommend it. The citadel in Hue is much better. Much of the citadel is reconstructed or currently being excavated.
It's a great site for history buffs to find out more of the Vietnamese history. It's centuries of history cramp into a single site up till their war for independence. There you find replication of city gates (Thanks to colonialism French destruction of the original), colonial French building, replica ancient oriental structure, fruit trees, underground battle bunker, General Giap office and ancient towers . It's quite large a site of a few hectare. You virtually could spend a day there if you visit every single exhibit. The only thing unusual here is the lack of crowd. Just a few group here and there. A very tranquil atmosphere.
It is an open public space. We saw a number of people having their graduation or wedding photoshoots here. It is a pleasant landscape with historical buildings that give a great vibe for exploring. Great place, do visit!
Historical palace with ancient architecture. A visit to underground bunker and Hanoi military command headquarters is also an interesting experience, a highlight of the trip. The place is kid friendly, suitable for family and group. A good walk for few hours.
There was so much about the Citadel that made it great for me. I went at a time that was popular for school children in groups. Each group was distinctive by wearing matching tee shirts or hats. Mostly younger kids, they were a joy to watch. I also loved the bonsai garden in the center court. It gave it a peaceful and satisfying vibe. The historic displays of archeological finds were very professionally maintained and presented. There was a photo exhibit wrapping around one building that was scenes of Vietnam that was superb. Both the quality of the photography and the subject matter were excellent. This in itself was worth more than the small admissions price. The temple toward the back was also worth visiting. It added to the feelings of peace and contentment that the Citadel brings.
