Michelin's Guide suggests places to visit and enjoy for two days in Hanoi, Vietnam.

The Michelin Guide suggests restaurants and places not to be missed if there are only 48 hours in Hanoi. With iconic destinations, restaurants, unique hotels of the Capital, here is the schedule that visitors can refer to when visiting this city.


Day 1


Start your day with a stroll through the streets of the French Quarter, enjoy a cup of coffee at Trieu Viet Vuong Street and watch the city. Alternatively, you can try egg coffee at Sofitel Metropole Legend Hanoi. A premier hotel with a history dating back to 1901, it offers a lavish and luxurious experience.

If you get up early, stop by Pho Bo Tho Trieu to enjoy a bowl of hot pho. Pho is served with a rich beef bone broth, cooked for 10 hours, topped with tender beef ribs and tendons.


By noon, you can try bun cha. The suggested address is a bun cha restaurant that once hosted former US President Barack Obama. They sell the Obama Combo, which includes a fried seafood spring roll, a special bowl of bun cha and Hanoi beer — a dish the former U.S. president once enjoyed.



Spend the afternoon exploring ancient architecture and boulevards such as Tran Hung Dao, Ly Thuong Kiet, Hai Ba Trung. Visit the Vietnamese Women's Museum or Hoa Lo Prison to better understand the history of the city.


At the end of the day, enjoy dinner at the restaurant on Cua North Street. This Bib Gourmand 2023 list restaurant is located in a vibrant blue-yellow house with signature dishes of crab hot pot and porridge.

You can start your day in Reunification Park, one of the largest parks in central Hanoi, to enjoy the bustling atmosphere as locals organize many activities. Suggestions for lunch are sushi and sashimi.



In the afternoon, explore the southeastern area of Hoan Kiem Lake, where you can admire Hanoi Opera House with French architecture. Nearby is the National History Museum, which houses a collection of artifacts introducing Vietnamese history.
