08:00 - Our tour guide will meet and pick you up at your hotel lobby.

08:30 - After a short talk, we'll head for Vietnam National Museum of History. The main exhibition system is the vivid historical book of Vietnamese nation from the prehistory (about 300,000-400,000 years) to the August 1945 Revolution. With an exhibition area of over 2,200 square meters and nearly 7,000 original artifacts, the main exhibition system is arranged chronologically.

10:00 - Next, we will walk to the nearby Vietnam Millitary History Museum. The ticket is the same one with the Vietnam National Museum of History so you don't have to buy one more. This museum currently keeps 4 of the national precious belongings, including the jet fighter aircrafts MIG 21 (800 4324) and MIG 21 (5121), the map of Ho Chi Minh revolution strategy and the tank T54B numbered 843.

12:00 - Two museums maybe enough for your morning. Now, a full lunch with tradional Vietnamese cuisine will reboost your energy for the afternoon.

13:00 - Our next stop after lunch is Hoa Lo Prison, considered as "the hell on earth" during Vietnamese war. Constructed by the French in 1896 to keep Vietnam political prisoners, this is largest prison in Indochina that time. The condition as well as the torture and everything make it compared to hell. Let's go and see what happened during that day. Before ending the tour, you may want to sit down somewhere and have a small talk with our guide. Hopefully he or she can help you get a deeper understanding about Vietnam, and especially its war.

15:00 - End tour, come back hotel!

This a famous Buddhist pagoda is more than 8 centuries years old. The Pagoda is associated with Từ Đạo Hạnh 徐道行, a special Zen master of Vietnam who lived in Lý Dynasty. His reputation became a legend in memories of people of that land because of romantic anecdotes about his great magic and kindness. He had travel from lands to lands to help people without asking for return. Finally, when he is on the verge of death, Từ Đạo Hạnh went to Sài Sơn mountain (its colloquial name is Thầy mountain), and built a small pagoda named Hương Hải (it was changed into "Thầy" pagoda latter on). He died here in 1116, and accidentally in that year, King Lý Thần Tông was born. The myth that King Thần Tông was the afterlife of Từ Đạo Hạnh has been rumored from this event.
