Attractions near the Sofitel Plaza Hanoi
The serene Tran Quoc Pagoda
Hanoi's oldest and most famous pagoda is steeped in history and is famous for its intricate design, but you don't need to have an in-depth knowledge of architecture to admire its beauty. Tran Quoc Pagoda was originally constructed in the 6th Century and remains one of the most iconic symbols of Hanoi today. It occupies an idyllic location, perched on an island between two of the city's major lakes.
A guided tour helps you gain insight into different aspects of the Pagoda's design and significance, from the majestic statues of Buddhist figures to the precise mathematical calculations behind the building’s construction.
Exploring Uncle Ho's stilt house
Ho Chi Minh is recognised as one of the most influential figures in modern Vietnamese history, and Hanoi offers several opportunities to learn more about the former president and the legends surrounding him. The grand colonial-style Presidential Palace is off-limits to visitors, but right outside stands the original stilt house in which 'Uncle Ho' reportedly lived a simple life in his later years.
Take some time to explore this house, where you can learn about traditional Vietnamese dwellings and see many of Ho Chi Minh's personal belongings.
