Itinerary

Car and tour guide pick you up at 8:00am and travel for nearly 02 hours west of Hanoi to Duong Lam village, a typically agricultural village of the Northern Red River delta where a lot of hundred-year-old houses are still preserved. This is also the great chance to explore architecture of ancient structures while you wander along its narrow alleyways, visit temples dedicated to the two kings born there, and most interesting of all, chat with the inhabitants, the owners of a national treasure.

Upon arrival, you walk along the old path to Mong Phu communal house – the solemn center of the whole village. Next, spend a visit to a local house that is almost 400 years old, then have a bicycle ride around this peaceful rural area to discover the daily life and farming works of Vietnamese peasants.

Your trip is followed by another visit to two temples dedicated to two national heroes Phung Hung and Ngo Quyen who were born in this site over 1000 years ago. Then, have lunch in the local house with the host’s family.

You can also visit the Mia Pagoda, a well-known Buddhist temple built in 15th century and it holds the biggest number of statues: 287 ones of all sizes.

After all, drive back to Hanoi, and tour ends at your hotel at about 4:00pm.
