HÀ NỘI The Friends of Vietnam Heritage will explore another corner of the capital this Saturday on a walking tour.
The walk will start from Hàng Đậu water tower that was built in 1894 by the French before continuing to Hòe Nhai Street and Hòe Nhai Pagoda. The group then will walk along Hàng Than Street – famous for bánh cốm (green sticky rice cake) shops, heading to Long Bien Rail Station and Long Biên Bridge under the arches.
Tour members will learn about the history of the area and what used to be grown by courtiers along Hòe Nhai Street. They will also have chance to see a unique statue in Hòe Nhai Pagoda and learn about some of the special foods of the area, what the streets were famous for in the past and what goes on there today.
The English-speaking tour, from 9.30am to 11.30am, will end at Long Biên Bridge – one of Hà Nội’s most iconic structures.
