Organised by Friends of Vietnam Heritage (FVH), the walk will start in front of the Flag Tower on Dien Bien Phu street with a brief introduction to the Citadel. We will then proceed into the Citadel Complex, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to learn about/discuss the architecture, the different historical periods of this former centre of power, the different relics and the part it played in the American War. During the walk, you will get to hear personal stories from long-term local Hanoi locals, as well as discovering some hidden areas of the city.
Friends of Vietnam Heritage (FVH) is an informal group of mainly Hanoi residents from many countries — including Vietnam. Their basic goal is the preservation and advancement of Vietnamese heritage and culture, and their purpose is to enhance and deepen the understanding of Vietnam’s culture. FVH functions as a non-profit educational group.
