Added to Unesco’s World Heritage List in 2010 and reopened in 2012, Hanoi’s Imperial Citadel was the hub of Vietnamese military power for over 1000 years. Ongoing archaeological digs of ancient palaces, grandiose pavilions and imperial gates are complemented by fascinating military command bunkers from the American War – complete with maps and 1960s communications equipment – used by the legendary Vietnamese General Vo Nguyen Giap.
The leafy grounds are also an easygoing and quiet antidote to Hanoi’s bustle
An interesting part of Vietnamese history. There if are some artifacts on display inside some of the buildings and you can peer onto an ongoing dig. Entry is 30,000VND.
Ticket entry 30.000vnd(updated 07-04-2015),u can walk around in big square ancient historic site,maingate,main palace of imperial citadel,even D67 house & Vo Nguyen Giap's bunker,worthy place
Quite nice to visit, with some museum inside. A little hard to go by walk as there is only one entrance.
You don’t really know HN that much if you miss to visit this place. you need at least a half day to explore quite all of interesting points.
Nice gate and many museums
Gửi xe 5k và sẽ được nhân viên bảo vệ gợi ý là trả 50k mà 0 phải mua vé tham quan nữa (vé tham quan là 60k/2 người),tính ra vẫn rẻ hơn 15k,trừ khi bước qua cái cổng còn chả có ai soát vé cả
Loved this place. Unexpectedly interesting & lots to visit
Great place for Vietnamese traditional long-dress photo. Graduation photo, too
