HA NOI (VNS) — The Friends of Viet Nam Heritage (FVH) will host two English-speaking tours on Saturday to learn about the French Concession and discover the Hoan Kiem Lake area.
The morning tour will start at 9am at the School of Pharmacy, designed by French architect Ernest Hebrard, before heading to the original French Concession of 1798 and other examples of French architecture in Ha Noi. During the walk, attendees will learn about the French expansion in the city and its influence on architecture.
The afternoon tour, starting at 1pm, will take tourists into the "centre of Ha Noi" to discover the founding of the city, the French colonisation of the area, as well as its history and legends of the lake.
