What people are saying:

Located in the city center, it has been discovered and excavated for less than 20 years. There are very few tourists. We are not on the recommended route. We also accidentally entered this scenic spot. It is said to be an imperial city, but judging from the size and the magnificence of decoration, it is far from the imperial city in ancient China. But still recommended. There are a small number of indoor exhibits. The exit can directly enter the scenic spot. There are not many parts to visit now. If there is not enough time, there is no need to come here. Many Vietnamese college students take graduation photos here, and many Vietnamese girls are wearing Ao Dai taking photos. If you want to see the ancient imperial city of Vietnam as recommended by other bloggers, it is better to go to Hue. The remaining buildings of this ruin are not complete. Personally, I don’t think the Thang Long Imperial City has anything to watch, because it was used as the headquarters of Ho Chi Minh in the later period, so the smell of gunsmoke of war is heavier than that of "Imperial City".

    An interesting place

    Not quite as spectacular as the Citadel in Hue but definitely worth a visit. You are given a map at the ticket office with a suggested route, which is worth following, as you could otherwise miss so m...

    Beautiful Old Structure

    Beautiful Old structure, Huge and nice to walk. Great to have a picture but for me, not much to see except to learn some history about the Vietnam war.
