The only remaining gate in Thang Long Ancient City-Donghe Gate Ô Quan Chưởng. This city gate is still an important traffic road in Hanoi, and it is ingeniously integrated with the lively Dong Xuan market and small shops next to it. Especially when you come here at night, there will be beautiful lights shining on the city gate, which is super sentimental. Donghe Gate, also known as the "Guanzhang Pavilion", was built in the Le Dynasty after 1749, and is the only remaining gate of the ancient city of Thang Long in Hanoi. Although Donghe Gate is a relic, it is not closed. People and vehicles can go through the gate to other places in Hanoi. In this way, the historical sites are closely related to the life of Hanoi residents.
Participated in a team parade today, led by two university students to explain local history along the way. Both of them were very friendly and took us to different places. But the attractions are all in Vietnamese and there is no detailed description, which is a bit confused. If there is an English version, it is better to give visitors a deeper understanding, and the old buildings hope to continue to be preserved and protected. Been here a few years ago, we were at the local market and planned to visit the ancient city gate again. It's worth seeing here because it has a sense of history, it's beautiful, and it's also a good place to take photos. Recommend to tourists.
The ancient city gate is very vicissitudes of life in the old city. I walked indiscriminately in the old city with narrow roads, outdated houses, mixed people and dense traffic (it feels like the old city of Xiguan in Guangzhou, but lacks the architectural pattern of arcades). I can’t distinguish the north, south, east and west. The text seems to be similar. After pointing to Hoan Kiem Lake (old city hotel gathering area) on the map and asking passers-by, I went to find the hotel on foot.
