Vietnamese Women’s Museum in Hanoi

Vietnamese Women’s Museum in Hanoi

The old day goes “ men build the house and women make it home”. It means that men are breadwinners who take charge of earning money and shoulder financial responsibilities in the family, while women are accountable for taking care of children, preparing meals for the family. However, Vietnamese women have to take more responsibilities than those. In addition to being a wife, a mother of the children they are a insufficient millitary source in wars against invaders, especially through the two fights against the French and America colonialism.

Vietnamese women’s museum is located in Ly Thuong Kiet street which is the most ancient and vibrant street in such a cosmopolitan city like Hanoi. The museum was constructed in 1987 and run by Vietnam Women’s union. It is the goal of the site to preserve and display various tangible and intangible historical and cultural heritage of Vietnamese women through the long-standing pathway of the history. Since being inaugurated in 1995, it has held a variety of exhibitions successfully and welcomed millions of international visitors from different nations on a yearly basis.

When it comes to the achievements that the museum has obtained, the most outstanding one that should not be mentioned is that it ranks 11th of 25 most popular museums in Asia voted by TripAdvisor with the meaningful message “ worth visiting, touching stories” in 2013. In addition, in continuous years, it holds one of the top tourist attractions of the capital, according to the recent statistics from the Tourism Department.

Vietnamese women’s museum was constructed in such a harmonious layout including two buildings a primary part, an inferior one and a cafeteria. The first impression that catches visitors’ eyes is the huge glass in front of the main gate. It is a stained glass divided into different cells with attractive colors that show the contents of the museum. Besides, it seems to be an effective way of emphasizing on the nature when the architectures utilized green trees and colorful flowers to take place of metal fence. Just a little detail is able to make tourists feel inspired and comfortable to enjoy quality time in the museum. It has four floors that are full with various books, items and subjects related to Vietnamese women.

If the outside of the museum brings tourists comfort, its interior makes them surprised and even takes their breath away because of its creative design. Standing in the first floor, there is a statue named “Mother of Vietnam” which is the symbol of the museum. The woman is holding her baby on her shoulder and her right hand is putting down at her feet, which means to be a shield to protect her child. This image represents for Vietnamese women with respected characteristics. Being a wife, a mother, they appear to be a flame heating the unconditional family love. Looking up to the ceiling is an interesting fun. There is a great number of the colorful conical leaf hats that are the symbol of Vietnamese women hanging on the ceiling. The museum often is renovated and redesigned accordance with each collection so that visitors feel like they are in a scene of the movie. Furthermore, other floors cover over 1000 items and diverse images. Only by seeing these exhibits can visitors portray vividly the appearance of Vietnamese women with their feats, sacrifice and their loss for our nation’s independence and reunification.

Women’s museum has three main themes: women in the family, women in history and women’s fashion. On the second floor, we can gain deeper understanding about women in the family ranging from wedding ceremonies, wedding costumes for women of all regions to the local rituals and customs related to women. There are some ethnic groups adapting the parental line of descent while others accept maternal line of descent. Despite the difference between groups in the family system, the procedures of wedding seem similar to some extent. The wedding normally consists of three parts: espousal, wedding and returned ceremony. It is interesting to note that for several ethnic groups, the more the amount of dowry is, the higher level of respect and love in husband’s family is. Next to the room displaying exhibits about wedding, there is a place to display the process of pregnancy with unique things of each group own such as a couple’s bedroom of the Black Thai ethnic and the ring called praying for having child. Additionally, the organization of family also depicts thoroughly through exhibits associated with various activities like hunting, planting, trafficking, and so on.

The third floor focuses on the topic of women in history. it is the site to reminisce the life stories of heroic females who delicated  the whole life to the Resistance war against invaders. You will be surprised to see memorabilia in here that is the most justified proof of creativity, iron willpower and ingenuous romance of Vietnamese women even in the wars, typically the vase from shells, militia platoon, etc… there are also various pictures of heroic Vietnamese mothers whose husband, children sacrificed bravely, heroically. They had to hide countless hurt in the introverted soul and continued to fight. They are so so great!!!.

The forth floor is for women’s fashion. It shows clearly percise skills of vietnamese women in the craftsmanship. They produced sewing, art pattern, embroidery, making jewellery art and makeup art deriving from ethnic groups in the north mountainous area.  Besides, it is interesting for tourists to learn more about the unique traditional customs of betel chewing and teeth staining. The museum also holds different exhibitions about various different topics such as “Mau” creed whom the Vietnamese worship for with a view to wishing the best and praying for their family, especially for their children. You have chance of discovering some folk songs, dances and special costumes in the form of worshipping.

Adjacent to the main hall and courtyard, the first floor is also the place to display a wide range of exhibitions according to topics reflecting contemporary life, raising the voice of society and exchanging the cultures between countries, for example, the Japanese doll exhibition with excellent and precise handmade dolls. It brings the museum brand-new leaf and an opening life. Not only taking place some exhibitions and events, does the museum hold traditional musical programs that attract many international tourists as well. Thanks to performing these programs, while tourists outside Vietnam can broaden their horizons about this type of art, Vietnamese people in particular young generations put emphasis on preserving the national conventional traditions and identity. Besides assimilating into multicultural world, they also should protect traditional values and develop them non-stop.

    Attaching importance to creativity and practicing, the museum has opened discovery room in the aim of teaching children aged from 7 to 15 years. With modern and quality facilities, this room would facilitate children to nurture and foster their creativity, soft skills and expand their social relationships. There are both Vietnamese and English books, stories about women, children and other diverse topics sponsored from many bookshops, funds. Children are taught to make craftworks, conceal leaf hats and draw pictures of their own.

Vietnamese women’s museum appears to be a colorful magazine vividly replaying all aspect of life of Vietnamese women. It makes a significant contribution to convey meaningful messages to the youth about the respected qualities of women. It also helps to broaden our horizons about national heritage and traditional values of Vietnamese women.

SWORD LAKE

We will ride you around the Sword lake- the slap bang of Hanoi capital which owes the longstanding history and hidden legend through the cherry and touching voice of the tour guides. Standing out in the middle of the lake is Turtle tower that is a symbol of Hanoi. Its architecture is the perfect combination between European and Vietnamese style. Another national relic is Ngoc Son complex, including Pen tower, the Inkslab, The Huc bridge and Ngoc Son temple. All of them create an impressed highlight, right there in the heart of the capital of Hanoi.

AROUND OLD QUARTER

After that, we will surf through Old Quarter to get a glimpse of both classic and contemporary architectures here. It is the major Hanoi’s commercial district with its heart and sound being exposed through ancient streets. It is said to be the most vibrant and cosmopolitan trading site. It consists of 36 old streets whose name starts with “Hang” and represents for special goods that it specializes. For example, if you dropped by Hang Dao that used to be a renowned centre for trading silk, you would have bought the quality silk for your own.

CERAMIC ROAD

One place that cannot forget to mention is the ceramic road. It is the longest road with 4 km length.

The next part of motorbike tours in Hanoi is another large lake – West lake. If Sword lake brings the sense of vibrancy and excitement, West lake is far quieter and more peaceful.

[TOUR REPORT] lầy quá, nhưng noi gương một ai đó nên lại phải cố gắng viết 🙁
– Tourist: Augusta and Sophie Thoo (Australian)
– Hotel: Hanoi Legacy, 39-41 Hang Ga
– Time: Thursday morning (22/12) 9 – 12:30 a.m
– Destination: Sword Lake – Cathedral – Lemon tea – Prison
– Description: It was a short tour and it was quite good. The girls were some years older than me but are very good-looking; one is a surgeon and the other is an engineer. We walked around the streets and they were amazed by the splendid beauty of the cathedral as it was near Christmas and by the cuteness of a bunch of kindergarten children dressing in Noel clothes playing around the cathedral. However, to lead them in the right way in the Old Quarter, I did need some help from the local, which may make me seem less professional as a tour guide (i admitted my drawback to them straight away, but they smiled and said it was okay as they got lost many times in their neighborhood). Eventually, it was one of the tourists using Google map to navigate the way that led us back to the hotel, not me. It was a little bit awkward for me, but the rest was perfectly fine.
(we got beautiful photos but all are in their mobiles phones, only one in my phone)
– Note: có ai biết là k có wifi hay 3G thì có dùng đc google map k? Hay chỉ cần bật GPS lển là đc?

Guides: Thanh Thanh + Huyen
This was the first time I’ve came to Bat Trang. Huyen convinced me to do the tour with her and I agreed although. I would have an exam next day. She did a good job despite her most attention to the youngest boy (either did I :v).
The family we guided is from Isarel, but they have lived in Hong Kong since 2 years. They have 3 boys, all of them are very cut, especially the youngest boy. He is 5 years old but he can speak 3 languages. He even taught English for Huyen as well, haha. At the first time we met, he came toward and said “Hello, I’m …. (I forgot his name). Nice to meet you” and shook our hands as an aldult. During the tour, we could not stop laughing at everything he did and said.
OMG, I have no more words to express my feeling with him. This was so awesome!

  1. Such a good Hanoikids Food Tour

One of the highlights of our trip was definitely the Food tour with hanoikids, seting up the food tour seemed to be very easy, our Hanoikids guides spoke great English which impressed us a lot. Besides, they knew all the good food spots in the Hanoi as a local here, not to mention flexible, tailoring our tour based on our interests. And the most amazing part was how friendly, welcoming and enthusiastic they were and to my surprise didn’t want to accept any money from us.
We really enjoyed the trip and the company of the hanoikids, would recommend Hanoikids food tour to tourists travelling to Hanoi!!

  1. Best way to explore Hanoi and try the local street food with Hanoikids Food Tour

We were very luky to have booked two tours for Hanoi children during our stay – a morning tour and an evening street food tour of Hanoikids. Both were great and I would definitely recommend to everyone. Especially Hanoikids Food Tour. Our guides were wonderful and the tours were very well organized.

Our first visit was a half-day tour of the city. We had requested for a full day but that there were no students available for our dates. These tours are very popular (and I can see why) so it’s worth booking as soon as you can. We had booked 6 weeks in advance and were still booked for a full day. We went up at noon and decided to go in the morning to avoid the heat. We met our Hanoikids guide, Trang promptly at 9:30 am in the hotel lobby. She was very friendly, spoke very good English and was enthusiastic.

Our second Hanoi kids was an overnight Hanoikids food tour on the street and again we had an amazing experience. This time we were lucky enough to have two guides – Quynh Anh and Thursday We were picked up from our hotel lobby at 6:00. Before we ventured outside we were asked how we felt about street food in Hanoi, it was what dishewe had already tried and what we wanted to try as well as our dietary needs. Based on this the women turned out to be a plan that we will go.

 

Again our guides proved invaluable and greatly benefited from their local knowledge, getting to taste some wonderful local specialties of Hanoi such as Bahn Da Cua and Bahn Cuon, we ended up with Vietnamese coconut coffee. Probably never have tried these things we had been on our own.

These tours are a wonderful way to see a part of Hanoi that you probably will not on your own. Their local knowledge is invaluable and they are willing to answer any questions you may have.

It is a fantastic service. It’s totally free, you only pay for the taxi, expenses and extras as meals (for guides as well). We would also like to read the reviews on TripAdvisor and came prepared with gifts from home to introduce our Hanoikids guides as a thank you.

Thank you Hanoikids for providing us these free tours (Free Walking tour, and Hanoikids Food Tour)

“Very pleasant food tour”

The Hanoikids are mostly students who offer volunteer tours through the city. A very great and nice thing. We have a street Hanoikids food tour. On the last vacation we had already booked a city tour with a visit of the war museum and the old prison (Hanoi Hilton). Both tours were a great experience, even for our two kids (teenagers). The students have also tried to help them, and the children found the guides equally sympathetic. I would not book another tour, but always support the Hanoikids.

“A Wonderful Expereince”

Reviewed December 6, 2012

We submitted a request for a guide at the last minute and were fortunate to be able to get a tour guide who was available. Our guide, Trang, is a university student studying business here in Hanoi. She is very easy to converse with which was a pleasant change from all of our paid tour guides who we have had to struggle to understand. She took us on a walking tour of the Old Quarter. She explained the significance of the street names and pointed out buildings of cultural and architectural importance. I watched the tourists roll by in the tour buses and thought how much better our experience was. We got to see life on the streets with a local person who could answer our questions from a personal perspective. She also easily handled a lot of questions about life in Vietnam that none of our previous guides had the English skills to deal with. She was a great resource and a wonderful representative of the young people in Vietnam. This is a terrific service that tourists not travelling with a group should be making use of.

“The knowledgeable and friendly free tour guide”

Reviewed April 1, 2013

We read all the reviews and they’re true – this really is a marvellous concept and it would be great to see this in other places around the world. Our guide, a lovely young lady named Hanh (I hope I am spelling correctly) greeted us at our hotel and we were guided through the HCM museum, the temple of literature before heading to a lovely restaurant for lunch. Hanh was very knowledgeable and I would not have taken away the importance of HCM and scholarly pursuits to the Vietnamese people if we did not have such valuable information provided to us. Hanh was also curious about our life in Australia and getting to know us. We spent a few hours after lunch around the Hoan Kiem lake and Old Quarter and had a great day. This lovely young lady does these tours on her one day off each week – we were really impressed with her knowledge and love of her culture. Thank you so much

“Wonderful experience with Local Tour Guides!”

 

We had booked our 1 1/2 day tours with HANOI FREE TOUR GUIDE last October 2013. They are very accommodating even though we had only 2 weeks left before our trip.

On our first day, we had a delayed flight from Singapore and we have set an appointment with HANOI FREE TOUR GUIDE at exactly 2:00 pm. Upon arrival on our Hotel, Dat was already waiting for us. At first, we are worried that we couldn’t understand him but surprisingly, Dat speaks English very well. He asked us to put our stuff first inside the room and he patiently waited for us before we start the tour. Before heading for the tour, he made sure that he knows what we want to see. To summarize our tour with Dat, we went to restaurant nearby the Hoa Lo Prison (price is okay). After having our Vietnamese lunch we went to Hoa Lo Prison and we had walking tour from Hanoi Opera House to Sofitel Metropole and then to our last stop the Turtle Pagoda. He drop us off at our Hotel. He is a real gentleman.

Second day (AM Tour), we met Star Dust (we forgot her Vietnamese name). She accompanied us to go to HCM Complex. She seems a bit lost in HCM Complex (at first) and probably her first time to tour a tourist in HCM Complex but it is still alright and acceptable. Her English is not that fluent but so far, we can still understand her. She also shared with us a little bit of a history in HCM Complex and we enjoyed our food in the restaurant (price is a bit expensive). My friend also had a wonderful time with her as she is teaching my friend a simple Vietnamese words while we are having our tour. She is very witty and fun to be with.

Second day (PM Tour), since they are all students, they also need to go to school. For the second half day tour, we need to change our tour guide and we are glad to finally meet Hang! Hang is the very first member of the HANOI FREE TOUR GUIDE and she has been a tour guide for so long! She explains everything and very very detailed. She is also patient and she never gets tired of walking inside the Temple of Literature. Museum of Ethnology and Turtle Pagoda/Restored Sword Lake + Ngoc Son Temple. Kudos! We are almost over for the day tour with Hang but I had another request, I wanted to try the egg coffee and it was so delicious! She is very professional in what she is doing and I would say that she is one of the best tour guide in HANOI FREE TOUR GUIDE.

To Dat, Star Dust, Hang and to the rest of the team, you have given us a wonderful trip in Hanoi. This trip will be in our minds for a long time. Many thanks and best wishes for the future!
