HANOI FULL DAY CITY TOUR
Visit Ho Chi Minh mausoleum (except on Monday, Friday & the whole Oct & Nov- Quan Thanh temple will be replaced) & Ho Chi Minh museum (except on Monday), One Pillar pagoda, Literature temple, Restored Sword lake, Ngoc Son temple & 45 minute cyclo tour in Hanoi ancient town. Transfer by car to Bat Trang ceramic village, the center of traditional "An Nam" ceramic. Stop-off at the village is an interesting mixture between watching the real production of ceramics and walking around for some light but fine and sophisticated porcelain. You can find in a factory the workmen mixing clay or dipping burnt vases into glaze to highlight their crackled lines, the painting masters, usually young girls with dexterous hands drawing on raw terracotta before they are heated at 900oC to 1,700oC ovens, taking inspiring pictures of coal-dust bakes pasted on the village's walls. Daily life of the village with a small exciting market and the wharf at the Red River where the products shipped are also very fascinating. Back to Hanoi. End of services. (Lunch included)
