To really get to know a city well it's helpful to have a local ambassador. On this half-day walking tour of Hanoi's Old Quarter, your local young and dynamic buddies will take you behind the scenes, to spots where you can see, feel a real Hanoi, and tell you stories about life from past to present in the Vietnamese capital. An ideal tour for first-time visitors to Hanoi.



Cultural Trips





Messy, crazy, but exciting with deeper encounter to local life, not as normal tourist design program. Join us and let’s discover together in the Old Quarter.

We start our explore by following the most well-known streets in the heart of the Old Quarter, then go through dark & tiny alleys having width fit one medium Vietnamese only. Curious, excited and want to know why local residents keep living as this? By stopping at a family has been living in the Old Quarter over 50 years and having interesting chat about their daily routine, you will learn more about local tradition, culture and lifestyle as well.

Continue to Dong Xuan market, the biggest whole-sale market in the Old Quarter where you could find all the amazing and cheap buys ranging from exotic herbs, fresh fruits and veggies, sweet scented flowers to wooden crafts and decor. En-route is 2 stops for sampling the typical local drink and dish.

The walk ends at O Quan Chuong Gate, the only gate of 5 gates surrounding the Thang Long citadel, survives as a proper "square gate”. We then transfer you back to your hotel.

Recent travel review

This Ambassador partnership between Connek Hotel and students from the local university is a great initiative. We took 2 walking tours in the Old Quarter, each time in a different route. Mr Win took us to the big market and taught us how to cross the street (don’t run, don’t stop, just keep up a walking pace and use your hand to wave at cars to indicate – they miraculously drive around you!). The second tour at the end of our month-long stay in Vietnam was with lovely Anh and Stella, students. They showed me different things with a walk around the Lake, and going to old house. Returned us safely to the Connek Hotel where we stayed – highly recommended place to stay.
Thanks Anh and Stella, I hope you enjoy happy future careers in the travel industry. Vietnam is a wonderful tourism destination! – Ms. Kim
