What to Do in Hanoi during Your Anniversary or Honeymoon Staycation
Here is a science-backed tip for living happily ever after: say “yes” to your partner’s bids for connection. While exploring the streets of Hanoi together, let the thrill of new discovery guide your way, but do pay heed to what interests your partner as well! Food in particular can be instrumental in relationship building, and it certainly helps if you are sharing a meal that sparks joy.
In Hanoi, a quality meal is a humble traditional Vietnamese meal—often, the best meals are found along the streets. Tatler recommends the bun cha (grilled pork and noodles) at Bun Cha Ta, the banh cuon (steamed rolls) from Banh Cuon Gia Truyen Thanh Van, and the pho (rice noodle soup) at Pho Gia Truyen Bat Dan. For Pan Pacific Hanoi guests, these eateries are all easily accessible.
If you and your true love have a predilection for caffeine and vintage architecture, Vietnam’s “cafe apartment” trend—where fledgling cafes breathe new life into time-worn buildings—will give you plenty to smile about. Try Cu Xa Cafe, located in a 1970s apartment for housing government officials, or Loading T Cafe, nestled within a French colonial mansion. To unearth more hidden gem cafes located in old apartments, follow the directions here.
For couples open to living a little more dangerously, consider sipping your cuppa alongside an operating train track—with the occasional rumbling train for company. Simply head to “Train Street” and pick a makeshift cafe for your adventure.

Where to Go in Hanoi during Your Babymoon Staycation
Exciting changes lie ahead, with a new baby on the way! But often, pregnancy can be physically challenging too, and your priority when planning babymoon activities in Hanoi will be to ensure maximum comfort—and minimum physical exertion.
If walking is still enjoyable for the mother-to-be, and you have yet to fully explore Hanoi, consider contacting Hanoi Free Walking Tours to book a guided walk.
Alternatively, stroll through the warren of alleyways in Hanoi’s Old Quarter, at your own pace. In all, there are 36 walking streets to navigate, and here are some highlights:
Dong Xuan Market: the largest wholesale market in Hanoi
Hang Buom: Hanoi’s oldest temple, the Bach Ma Temple, is located here
Hang Bac: ideal for souvenir shopping, especially jewellery and antiques
Hang Dao: a place to purchase silk and embroidery products
Hang Gai: a street best known for its tailors and boutiques
Hang Ngang: a bustling trade area with a night market
If a sedentary activity is more appropriate, enquire with Hanoi spas to check if they can provide a couple’s package that includes a prenatal massage. Some prenatal massages are designed to relieve pregnancy discomforts such as water retention and swelling, while others are emotion-focused, helping to soothe anxieties and restore a sense of calm.
For couples who desire the best of both worlds, sightseeing in comfort is always possible. Consider booking a two-hour cyclo ride around Hanoi’s Old Quarter, where there is much to observe, as traditional trades still rule the roost here. However, do note that a single cyclo may not be able to accommodate two passengers.
Prefer to soak in the city sights while hand-in-hand with your partner? Book a private Hanoi tour in an air-conditioned vehicle, and you can watch the city go by, with your partner by your side.
