The Friend of Vietnam Heritages (FVH) will host an English city walk to Tràng Tiền Street and surrounding area in Hà Nội tomorrow, starting at 9.30am and lasting for about three hours.
Tràng Tiền and surrounding roads such as Hàng Bài, Bà Triệu, Hàng Khay are familiar to most Hà Nội citizens. As the group stroll these streets they will touch on the area’s development from the early days of Hà Nội through the French period to the present time, hear some of its stories and history and the former ‘lives’ of some familiar and not so familiar buildings.
The simple but detailed route will take the attendees from the steps of the Opera House, down Tràng Tiền towards Hoàn Kiếm Lake, into Hàng Bài, towards Hàm Long and back up to Bà Triệu and Hàng Khay with a few interesting diversions on the way.
