Half day Trip to Co Loa Citadel:
Overview :
Half day Trip to Co Loa Citadel Located near Phong Khe, Co Loa Citadel is just about 20km to the North of Hanoi. This old fortress attracts many foreign tourists for its historical and cultural value. It would be interesting for tourist to find that this Citadel is not only built in a large scale, but also took a very long time to construct. Especially, it has also been the source of various relics of the Dong Son culture of the Bronze Age. This would be a precious chance for tourists to explore such large site and its potential beauty. This spiral-shaped complex will take you to the mysterious ancient Vietnam thousands of years ago…
