In the autumn issue of Ultratravel – the famous Telegraph’s publication on luxury travel, the journalist E Jane Dickson has acclaimed the Thanh Chuong Viet Palace and the Temple of Literature as the two must-visit places in Hanoi capital.
Built in Soc Son District on the outskirts of Hanoi in 2003, the Thanh Chuong Viet Palace (Phủ Việt Thành Chương) is owned by the artist Thanh Chuong, who always desires to give his love for traditional Vietnamese culture. Up to now, the palace has regarded as a cultural destination and allured both local and foreign tourists. Thanh Chuong Viet Palace is an ideal for a break-away from Hanoi capital.
Built in the 11th century, the Temple of Literature is conferred as Vietnam’s first university, which was dedicated to Confucius and other scholars. Not only being one of Hanoi’s most picturesque tourist attractions, but the Temple of Literature is also a well-preserved building, which has been a superb example of traditional Vietnamese architecture. Temple of Literature is a cannot miss attraction in any Hanoi city tours.
