Hanoi adjusts admission fees at some tourist attractions

Hanoi – where ancient historical sites, temples and pagodas interweave amidst the bustling, modern life, surrounded by towering skyscrapers. It’s a place where travelers can discover stylish cafes and indulge in modern beverages right next to centuries-old temples.  

When visiting Hanoi, tourists should definitely explore Vietnam’s first university – Temple of Literature, visit and seek blessings at the Ngoc Son Temple, feel the moments full of resilience of the heroic “prisoners of war” at Hoa Lo Prison, explore Imperial Citadel of Thang Long and tour the scenic Perfume Pagoda. 

However, Passionate Travel has a small announcement for travelers planning to visit these locations. Starting from December 6, 2023, the entrance fees at various historical and scenic sites have been adjusted according to Resolution No. 06/2020/NQ-HĐND dated July 7, 2020, by People’s Council of Hanoi.
