Hanoi, Vietnam Cruise Port

While Hanoi is the capital of Vietnam, it also serves as the unofficial intellectual and arts capital of the country. In the 11th century the first university was established here at the Temple of Literature. The popular cruise port of Hanoi is also home to dozens of art galleries and the Vietnam National Museum of Fine Arts. One of the most unique art forms, Water Puppetry, is a must-see in the city. These intricate shows with large casts usually recount Vietnamese folklore. While the water puppetry dates back centuries, the city and its people are still very much influenced by the French colonial period. This is evident in the villas and mansions that sit off of wide tree-lined streets, and the baguettes sold on street corners. Cruise to Hanoi for a charming blend of French and Asian cultures.
 
  • See a stunning show at the Hanoi Opera House. Built by the French, this building was meant to reflect the Palais Garnier, an opera house in Paris.
     
  • Visit the home of Communist leader Ho Chi Minh. The serene house was his home during his reign as leader of the country from 1954 until his death in 1969. 
     
  • The Old Quarter is the city’s most popular destination. It’s a collection of 40 streets built in the 13th century. Here you can find local food and interesting souvenirs.
     
  • Get to know the heritage of the Vietnamese people at the Vietnam Museum of Ethnology where they break down 54 ethnic groups in Vietnam.
