If you’re wondering what to do in 3 days in Hanoi as a first timer, you’ve got to the right place! I could only start that by saying that this peculiar city is wrapped up in mysticism, colors, smiles and kindness. It’s one of my favourite places in Vietnam, along with Ba Na Hills and Hoi An.
Hanoi is a city hard not to fall in love with. And 3 days are more than enough for that!
First of the 3 days in our Hanoi itinerary
is a walk around the Hoan Kiem Lake,
a place of folk tales and art. We start with a temple visit and continue by exploring the nearby quarters and most exciting attractions.
The second day is an introduction to the history, as well as political and educational system of Vietnam, while the third day in Hanoi is about the West Lake area, from Pagodas and Temples to modern-day skyscrapers.
Getting ready for spending one day in Seville?
As the city is the one and only, excessively charming capital of the southern Spain province of Andalusia, the experience of a day trip to Seville can be quite massive.
You’ll find am urban Andalusian mix of centuries-old architectural marvels, fully immersed in lush vegetation, jasmine scents and the passionate rhythms of flamenco. A Moorish-Renaissance palace and a gigantic Gothic cathedral reign over the historical center, known as the the labyrinthic Barrio de Santa Cruz.
For me, Seville has always had the air of a vintage postcard.
Tallest palms I have ever seen, Mediterranean wildflowers scattered at their feet, quirky fine art, colorful ceramics and intricate archways of the ancient buildings, plus the guitar melodies floating above the cobblestone streets, make Sevilla one the most romantic cities in Europe
. Durable through time, though so delicate.
A long list of out-of-this-world things to do in Bukchon Hanok Village, Seoul, South Korea. Ready?
The ancient South Korean Bukchon Hanok Village is a rare time-machine neighbourhood. An attraction worth of topping any list of places to visit in Seoul. The village takes you back more than 600 years ago, to the ancient Joseon Dynasty era, while confining pieces of what used to be the lifestyle of the upper class of those times.
In all my travels, I have hardly ever seen such a surprising urban artefact.
Bukchon means Northern Village and it was called so due to its strategic position on the Joseon Map, north of Cheonggyecheong Stream and Jongno.
Traditionally, this was the residential quarter of high-ranking government officials and nobility.
Even though some of the old hanoks have been modernized being transformed into the so called fusion hanoks, there are still plenty of well-conserved examples of art and architecture reminding of the ways old Koreans used to live.
