Many of Vietnam’s political prisoners were tortured and killed here. Afterward, during the Vietnam War, the North Vietnamese used it to imprison American soldiers.

I have been working as a tour guide for 8 years, I am developing the preservation of ancient cultures in Hanoi. With the mission of Hanoi, I will introduce to foreign visitors better understand the historical relics of Hanoi. Hanoi is where I was born, grew up, and gave me many memories of an ancient and modern capital. Hanoi is modernizing, ancient cultures will disappear, I will try to preserve it by the ruins of modern society. You will love my capital, where there are old streets, vibrant eateries, bars, pubs, street food at night. Hanoi has old trees, train whistles in the afternoon.
Lunch Lunch at the top Banh My or Pho Bo restaurant, depending on the request of the tourists.
coffee or tea, smoothie fruit.

Window shutters were kept closed and the prison was usually overcrowded. A prison guard, say “it is easy to die but hard "
