Night tour of Hanoi’s imperial citadel to debut by year end – VnExpress International


Tourists will depart from Doan Mon, the main gate of the imperial citadel at 18 Hoang Dieu Street, Ba Dinh District, and enter the Forbidden City where they will experience the history, architecture and cultural values of the UNESCO heritage site.

Besides, visitors will also enjoy royal performances and art programs along with an introduction to archaeological excavations shedding light on the Ly, Tran, and Le dynasties.

The tour is expected to run from 5:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. in winter and from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in summer.

The Imperial Citadel buildings and the remains in the archaeological site reflect “a unique Southeast Asian culture specific to the lower Red River Valley, at the crossroads between influences coming from China in the north and the ancient Kingdom of Champa in the south,” UNESCO wrote on its website.

On October 16, the heritage conservation center and leading travel company Hanoitourist organized a survey night tour to the citadel for representatives of more than 40 tourism businesses from Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang, Quy Nhon, Ninh Thuan and Nghe An.
