I had an amazing experience in Hanoi and lucky to have visited the Cathedral that av heard about for years.
Your visit to Hanoi will not be complete without seeing the Cathedral, we felt a whispering hope & shivering feeling when we saw it. Preservation of its look & people guarding the place to remind tourist of discipline & respect when there is a mass & they keep on taking pictures. The altar is an awe!
The best coffee shops around. This corner of church...... And please do attend the prayer ceremony in church... Sunday may be perfect...... Interior of the church is one of the best among vietnam..... Very beautiful.... And when the choir comes and sings.... Its very serene and blissful
