Autumn in Hanoi is a beautiful time of year. As the weather cools down, the trees in the city start to turn beautiful shades of orange, yellow, and red. The streets are filled with falling leaves, creating a magical atmosphere.
One of the best things to do in Hanoi during Autumn is to take a stroll around Hoan Kiem Lake. The park surrounding the lake is filled with trees, making it a great place to relax and enjoy the crisp weather. In the evenings, you can see local couples sitting by the lake, taking in the beautiful scenery.
Another great way to enjoy Autumn in Hanoi is to try some of the local food. In the morning, you can go for a bowl of Pho, followed by a cup of coffee. This is a very Vietnamese thing to do.
Afterward, take a walk around the Hanoi French Quarter for its chill atmosphere.
Hanoi’s autumn is beautiful but definitely doesn’t last long, as the winter season that follows can be very cold and wet.
If you’re a food lover visiting Hanoi for the first time, we recommend taking the Hanoi food walking tour and The Hidden Hanoi Old Quarter Experience. For vegans and vegetarians, the Vegetarian Street Food & Stories of Hanoi is an excellent choice. If you’re a history buff or looking for a unique experience in Hanoi, consider the Stories from Vietnam War at not-to-go-alone areas tour. Note that 20% of the proceeds go to charity organizations.
For those who love coffee and history, the Coffee, History, and Architecture of the French Quarter tour is a must. Lastly, if you’re visiting Hanoi on a hot or rainy day, the Escape the Heat of Hanoi – Museum Experience is a great option.
