Things to do in Hanoi

Temple of Literature

Vale a pena a visita ao Templo da Literatura, e passear pelos pavilhões da primeira universidade do pais. O templo foi fundando em 1070 pelo rei Ly Thai Tong, como o Colégio Nacional e seis anos mais tarde foi transformado em universidade

The Temple of Literature is worth the visit, walking around the pavilions of the first university of the country. The temple was founded in 1070 by the then King Ly Thai Tong as the National College and six years later it was transformed into a university.

KOTO Restaurant

Depois de visitar o templo da literatura, uma ótima dica é dar uma passadinha para conhecer, e é claro, apreciar uma deliciosa comida vietnamita. O restaurante Koto, foi inaugurado com as idéias do Sr. Jimmy Pham, que vem trabalhando com crianças carentes depois que ele perguntou a elas o que queriam da vida. Ele decidiu criar o Koto para o treinamento dessas crianças e ofereceu trabalho e educação.O projeto tem sido um grande sucesso que até mesmo Bill Clinton apareceu para uma visita e provou alguns dos deliciosos pratos.

A good tip, after visiting the Temple, would be to try some delicious local food. The restaurant Koto was established following the ideas of Mr Jimmy Pham, who had been working with homeless street kids before he asked them what they wanted from life. Their answer was that they did not want charity but a way out of their situation. He decided, therefore, that he would set up Koto to train these kids and provide them with jobs and an education. The project has been such a success that even Bill Clinton had dropped in to visit and taste some of the delicious meals.

Old Quarter

Uma outra dica é simplesmente passear pela zona antiga de Hanoi, e aproveitar para conhecer alguns mercados, bares e centenas de vendedores ambulantes. A vida notura é super divertida e nós tivemos a sorte de encontrar um bar que servia a cerveja grande por apenas 15mil Dong (R$1.20), pena que a policia chegou para fechar o lugar, mas voltamos na noite seguinte. rsrs

Another tip would be to simply walk through the old part of town and make the most of the markets, bars and hundreds of street vendors. The nightlife is great and we were lucky to find a bar where the beer was served for as little as 50p, shame that the “Fun Police” arrived to shut the place down as it was past curfew.
