Ha Noi’s Department of Tourism and the Vietnam-Ha Noi Tourism Joint Stock Company have launched a new Tourism Information Centre at 28 Hang Dau street in Hoan Kiem District, aiming to promote the city’s tourism and serve tourists better.
What Centre do
Located nearly Hoan Kiem Lake, which is a tourist attraction in downtown Hanoi, Hanoi Tourism Information Centre has been tasked with updating visitors on destinations in Hanoi and Vietnam in general, helping them to get access to tourist services such as the transportation system, restaurants and hotels.
The centre will offer four free walking tours to discover the Old Quarter and the space around Hoan Kiem Lake, including a tour of Hanoi’s outstanding architectural works and another to study the capital’s history and culture.
The third tour will introduce craft streets – a cultural feature of Hanoi’s Old Quarter and the last one will help tourists understand about the combination of Eastern and Western cultures inside the Old Quarter.
The tour of craft streets, including Hang Dao (Silk Dyers), Hang Bac (Silver), Hang Bo (Basket), Lan Ong (Traditional medicine), Hang Thiec (Tin), Hang Quat (Fan) and Dong Kinh Nghia Thuc Square, was put into operation right after the launch of the centre.
With the inauguration of the tourist centre and the four free tours, Ha Noi’s tourism sector expects to improve service quality and promote the hospitality of the capital city to visitors at home and from abroad, thereby attracting more to the city.
