Botanical Gardens

Escape Hanoi without leaving

What we say: 3.5 stars

Located just above the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum complex northwest of the Old Quarter, the sprawling Botanical Gardens provide an excellent respite from Hanoi's busy streets.

They're well landscaped, featuring ample foliage to soothe tired eyes and some cages with exotic birds and monkeys that we wish weren't there, but this is Vietnam, and every park has to have a monkey cage. Long opening hours mean you can find a time to beat the heat in the summer, and you can't beat the price.

The entrance is on the northern side of the park, so to get here, find Hung Vuong Street, head north, and take a left on Hoang Hoa Tham. If you’re on a bike or in a taxi you’ll need to navigate around the square ‘roundabout’ at the top of Hung Vuong. The entrance is in the middle of the park on the left.
