Very harmonious temple and rich in symbolism. The attention for symmetry is very relaxing and deliver a sense of peace.

Located in the West Lake area, the temple, gate, walls complex is very pretty and is inviting. Quite picturesque. Go earlier as it can get busy with both locals and tourists, Dress appropriately for a temple. Enjoy!

A temple dedicated for Trấn Vũ of Taoism. The temple has strong cultural vibes and it's amazing that VietNamese were able to maintain this temple up todate. One of the must see temples when you visit Hanoi.

There were only a few people around when I visited this temple. At only 10k₫ I figured it was worth checking out. The temple grounds are rather small, but it's a relaxing, shaded break from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the city.

We walked from our hotel to Tran Quoc Pagoda, had a quick lunch and visited this temple. We were both most impressed with the large bronze Buddha and the Temple itself was also interesting with several Buddhas at the side and the immediate entrance has...More

Your list is a very good itinerary for Hanoi, but you should not miss Hoa Lo, often called 'Hanoi Hilton' - the former French security prison, which was also used for the US prisoners of war. It is a very interesting museum... More
