AUTHENTIC LOCAL DELICACY - BANH MI (VIETNAMESE BAGUETTE)
When talking about Vietnamese signature snacks, we definitely cannot leave out the world-famous Banh Mi (Vietnamese Baguette). Bread, or specifically baguette, was introduced by the French during the colonial period in Vietnam. Since then, our people have introduced several different fillings, bringing unique flavors to Banh Mi, most popularly sauteed chicken, grilled pork, and eggs; always topped with fresh, refreshing herbs. Banh Mi is prepared fresh by our dedicated banquet chefs, and will make the most tasty and filling break food for your event.
FIND INSPIRATION IN A HISTORICAL SETTING
The historical Temple of Confucius was built in 1070 and was Vietnam’s first national university, the Imperial Academy.

A particular highlight is the vast collection of doctors’ stelae, carved with names and birthplaces of more than 1,300 graduates. The temple is a source of national pride and is featured prominently on the VND 100,000 banknotes. With its historical significance and beautiful lush gardens, this magnificent venue promises to leave your delegates with unforgettable memories of Hanoi with InterContinental Hanoi Landmark72.
IMMERSE IN THE LIFESTYLE OF A TRUE HANOIAN
A true Hanoi icon, this centrally located lake is as beautiful as it is historically significant. Legend holds that, in 1428, Emperor Le Loi met the Golden Turtle God while boating on the lake. It surfaced and asked the emperor to surrender his magical sword. Heaven’s Will, as the sword was called, had been forged by the Dragon King, who resided at the bottom of the lake. Once the emperor finished driving out the Ming army, he returned the sword to the turtle. Today, ‘Returned Sword’ Lake remains central to life in Hanoi. It’s a bustling centre of community activities, including pedestrian markets at the weekend. A visit here can be conveniently combined with a stop at Long Bien Bridge, overlooking the Red River.
