Specifically, visitors will receive a discount of 50,000 VND per person when buying the night tour program “Decoding Thang Long Imperial Citadel”. The offer is available to customers who have boarding passes on Vietnam Airlines flights from other provinces and cities to Hanoi in 2022.

The program is applied to the tour every Friday and Saturday evening, from now until the end of 2022. Visitors only need to bring their boarding pass (ticket), ID card or citizen ID and passport to receive tickets at the Thang Long Imperial Citadel.

Chairman of the Hanoi Travel Association Phung Quang Thang said that in order to stimulate tourism in Hanoi, especially with a number of new tourism products, such as the night tour “Decoding the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long”, the association actively cooperated with Vietnam Airlines and destinations to create connections with tourists. This is also an effective form of promotion for the capital’s attractive tourism products to domestic and international tourists.

Travellers will begin their 1.5-hour tour at Doan Mon (Main Gate), the entrance to Cam Thanh (Forbidden Palace) - the king’s residence, and learn about the site’s history, architecture and functions there.

They will later enjoy an old dance right on the glass covering the archaeological excavation area and gain an insight into this dig, which contains vestiges of the Ly, Tran, and Le dynasties, via tour guides’ introduction. They will also visit an exhibition hall of rare antiquities, some dating back over 1,000 years.

At Kinh Thien Palace, travellers can offer incense to King Ly Thai To, who moved the country’s capital from Hoa Lu in Ninh Binh province to Dai La which he renamed Thang Long in 1010, as well as other kings contributing to the capital’s development./.
