Up at 4am: Early Morning Adventures in Hanoi Vietnam - Independent Travel Cats


Independent Travel Cats

One morning while in Hanoi Vietnam, we got up before 4:00am to go on an early morning city tour. Crazy, right?! Now, we are not early morning people by any means, but we trusted our guide and drug ourselves out of our comfortable beds to explore Hanoi at 4:00am. We are so glad we did as there are things that you only have the opportunity to experience early in the morning in Hanoi and few tourists venture out at these hours. We explored chaotic early morning markets, witnessed the changing of the honor guards ceremony, joined the local early risers for tai chi at Hoan Kiem Lake, searched for a magic turtle, and had breakfast with the locals in the Old Quarter. All that before 8:00am! Interested? We'll give you a list of places in Hanoi Vietnam you might want to visit on a morning venture of your own and share our own early morning adventures with our local guide from Footprint Travel.
