The only remaining gate in Thang Long Ancient City-Donghe Gate Ô Quan Chưởng. This city gate is still an important traffic road in Hanoi, and it is ingeniously integrated with the lively Dong Xuan market and small shops next to it. Especially when you come here at night, there will be beautiful lights shining on the city gate, which is super sentimental.
Donghe Gate, also known as the "Guanzhang Pavilion", was built in the Le Dynasty after 1749, and is the only remaining gate of the ancient city of Thang Long in Hanoi. Although Donghe Gate is a relic, it is not closed. People and vehicles can go through the gate to other places in Hanoi. In this way, the historical sites are closely related to the life of Hanoi residents.
Participated in a team parade today, led by two university students to explain local history along the way. Both of them were very friendly and took us to different places. But the attractions are all in Vietnamese and there is no detailed description, which is a bit confused. If there is an English version, it is better to give visitors a deeper understanding, and the old buildings hope to continue to be preserved and protected. Been here a few years ago, we were at the local market and planned to visit the ancient city gate again. It's worth seeing here because it has a sense of history, it's beautiful, and it's also a good place to take photos. Recommend to tourists.
The entrance of a very old city is not very wide. The gate is also a stone structure. It has many characteristic old-fashioned styles. The ancient gate is also a very long historical review. The environment here is also very noisy.
The ancient city gate is very vicissitudes of life in the old city. I walked indiscriminately in the old city with narrow roads, outdated houses, mixed people and dense traffic (it feels like the old city of Xiguan in Guangzhou, but lacks the architectural pattern of arcades). I can’t distinguish the north, south, east and west. The text seems to be similar. After pointing to Hoan Kiem Lake (old city hotel gathering area) on the map and asking passers-by, I went to find the hotel on foot.
The ancient city gate is a very historic old building in Vietnam. It is also an old city wall built in ancient times. The city wall surrounds the core area of the city and the old city. It is also pretty good to play here.
Came here with my wife for some days in hanoi. How to says : not much beautiful landscape but exceptional. Just take a photoes.
It is the only one out of 21 original entrances to the old Thang Long Citadel to survive over a thousand years.now it is a very busy gate,people and motorbike go in and out.be careful when you want to...
I mean maybe because I have been to so many historical places in Hanoi already so another one like this could be skipped for me.
It’s interesting architecture is a glimpse into the history of this interesting city and is a worthy stop on a walk around the area
This is the oldest city gate in Hanoi with lots of traffic passing through this gate everyday. Always keep a lookout for the traffic when you were there
