If I was to pick one place only I could see in Hanoi this would be it! Wonderful gardens, impressive statues and a history of a culture that developed over a 1000 years - it is well maintained and many guides in English to help understand. A must see!

We though this wouldn't interest us but surprisingly it was of considerable interest. Worth a visit if you if you cant fit it in. Comparisons to experiences to other cultures makes this site very interesting.

Pleasant place to wander but gets crowded at times. Very good craft shops with reasonable prices. I recommend.

Take your time here, wander around randomly - but tradition requires that you walk in through the 5 courtyards, keeping to the right, and keep to the right going out, so that you exit the other side.
The magnificent 82 stone turtles are exquisite, as are the internal pagoda spaces. I particularly liked the patterns of the tiled roofs.
The historical academic significance of this place is inspiring.
