We visited on a rainy day, and even then, the setting, the architecture, the grounds were inspiring. We would imagine it must be beautiful in warmer, sunny weather. A must stop for anyone visiting Ha Noi.
Good for a short visit to learn about Vietnamese university history, how the first one started in the 11th century, etc. It was a bit crowded when I visited though, so it's not a great place to take a lot of photos.

I have always visited it earlier in the day and when I went pass it around 6pm it was closed. Your best bet is to schedule your visit a bit earlier in the afternoon and go for dinner around that area when you are finished. My family and I found it was a interesting walk, exploring around there.
