Hanoi

The capital of Vietnam, Hanoi has bounded back from the effects of war, and today serves as a bustling commercial and cultural hub bursting at the seams.
Old Quarter and St. Joseph's Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Quan Lan Beach and Fine Arts Museum (Bao Tang My Thuat). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Temple of Literature & National University, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake of the Restored Sword (Hoan Kiem Lake), steep yourself in history at Hoa Lo Prison, and get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour.

To find more things to do, where to stay, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Hanoi trip itinerary maker site.

Oslo, Norway to Hanoi is an approximately 18-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 6 hours traveling from Oslo to Hanoi. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Fri) to allow time to travel to Cat Ba.
