Hanoi Flag Tower, Hanoi

(3.6/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
A prominent 19th-century landmark, Hanoi Flag Tower stands as the most recognizable feature of the city's World Heritage Site, the Hanoi Citadel. King Gia oversaw the building of this tower between 1805 and 1812. It is an iconic attraction because it is one of the only structures in the city that wasn't destroyed in the late 19th-century French invasion. The flag at the top of this attraction stands at 41 m (134 ft) high. When you visit the site, you can climb stairs to the top of the tower and take in views of the city.

  • Located in the military museum can do 2 things at same time. Realky authentic and cool to look at. Nice photo opportunity. Great when the wind blows 
  • Hanoi Flag Tower with flag of the Viet Nam country world flick is an elegant elite Tower. Make it stand out and can be seen from afar, which is located in the Interior of the Museum by the Army when they visit the Museum and then the upper travel around the tower.
