EXPERIENCE HANOI BY CYCLO
Visit Hanoi by cyclo is one of the most peaceful ways to explore Hanoi Old Quarter. This “authentic” way allows visitors discover the city center in intense emotions.
It's like you are in the center of a whirlwind of movement, wrapped in a cacophony of horns and the bustle of people who trying to make their way in the middle of all this excitement.
Hanoi, the “City within the River’s Bend,” was founded by Emperor Ly Thai To in AD 1010, near Co Loa, the ancient capital of the first Viet state dating back to the 3rd century BC. Ly Thai To structured this city, then known as Thang Long, around the massive citadel. To the east of this, a settlement of guilds was established to serve the needs of the royal court. By the 16th century, this area had developed into Hanoi’s celebrated Old Quarter.
