Night tours should be experienced when traveling to Hanoi

Posted By : Threeland Travel / Hanoi-Travel Tips

Hanoi's thousand years of culture always impress visitors with its traditional beauty combined with modernity. Tourists are often impressed with the beauty of Hanoi during the day, but few people know that Hanoi at night is still sparkling, magical, and rich in traditional historical values. For those who love the beauty of the capital at night, please visit the 4-night tours that should be experienced when coming to Hanoi.

The Hanoi night tour gives visitors an exciting and profound experience of the unique beauty of this historical capital at night. With a harmonious combination of modernity and antiquity, Hanoi shines with its unique cultural, historical, and culinary characteristics.

Temple of Literature night tour

For those who are interested in learning about education and are passionate about finding teachers to study religion, the Temple of Literature is a great destination for tourists when traveling to Hanoi.
The night tour at the Temple of Literature—Quoc Tu Giam—recounts historical stories about the exam hall, scholars, and anecdotes related to Vietnam's oldest universities.

Instead of performing on stage, Temple of Literature—Quoc Tu Giam uses light technology to create an impressive space. From the main gate, visitors will be "guided" by sound and light to Khue Van Cac. In addition, 3D mapping performance technology was also demonstrated at the Thai Hoc stage.

When night falls, the space around the Temple of Literature becomes more peaceful and solemn. The shimmering lights flicker, highlighting the ancient architectural features of temples, monuments, and historical walls. This is the time when visitors have the opportunity to see statues of famous people, stone stele engraved with the names of cultural idols, and senior scholars—part of Vietnam's long educational history.

The Temple of Literature-Quoc Tu Giam night tour gives visitors new experiences, different from visiting the monument during the day. The entire relic space is "transformed" by the lighting system and 3D mapping technology, creating a new, shimmering, magical appearance.

Accordingly, typical works of relics such as Khue Van Cac, Doctor's Stele Garden, Thien Quang Well, Bai Duong Area, etc. are effectively exploited in conveying the values and meanings of mysticism.

Not only is it a place to preserve cultural heritage, but the Temple of Literature is also a quiet space, suitable for those who want to find peace in the heart of Hanoi at night. Feeling the purity, visitors can stop at the temple corners to pray for luck, knowledge, and success in life.

Each ancient corner at the Temple of Literature contains a story, a part of the country's history, that is very unique for you to participate in.

Night tours are held every Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday.
