Tour of Less Seen Hanoi – 3 Hours

Riding pillion on the back of a motorbike/scooter and explore another Hanoi for 3 hours with quiet traffic, slow-paced life, locals sticking to their daily hobbies unstirred by the hustle and bustle of the modern life.

Trip highlights:Golden fish

  • Visit a fish-keeping village;
  • Visit a bonsai, flower & pet street;
  • Ride on the back seat of a motorbike through narrow alleys of ancient villages in Hanoi which teem with daily life activities;
  • Ride a good part of the scenic road around the West Lake.

0800 A.M Our motorbike driver picks you up from the hotel and we zip through the busy traffic for the West Lake. Visit families in a fish-keeping village by the lake that you can learn about their business and about different fish species. Then have a walking tour on a street which bonsai, flowers and pet birds are for sale. Here we can observe how local buyers and sellers go about with their hobbies.The lakeside road

Our adventure continues through tiny alleys which were village roads some time in the past and again we reach the West Lake. The last leg of our trip is a smooth ride by the lakeside with nice view of century-old Buddhist pagodas here and high-rise buildings there, and in the water fishermen diligently carrying on with their livelihood... We'll have relaxing moments to take in the fresh air at a lakeside cafe before the trip back to your hotel.

Note: The trip can not be done on a rainy day. If you have booked the trip and it happens to be raining on the day of the tour, Paradissa pays you the full refund.
