The group then will walk along Hang Than Street – famous for bánh cốm (green sticky rice cake) shops, heading to Long Bien Rail Station and Long Bien Bridge under the arches.
Tour members will learn about the history of the area and what used to be grown by courtiers along Hoe Nhai Street. They will also have chance to see a unique statue in Hoe Nhai Pagoda and learn about some of the special foods of the area, what the streets were famous for in the past and what goes on there today.
The English-speaking tour, from 9.30am to 11.30am, will end at Long Bien Bridge – one of Hanoi’s most iconic structures.
