  1. Detailed itinerary of Duong Lam Ancient Village Tour.

    8:00 A.M, meet Vietnam Travel's guide at your hotel lobby then begin your day of exploration with 1.5 hour ride to the west of Hanoi to the Duong Lam Village. It is a purely agricultural village of the Northern Red River Delta where still preserve many hundred-year-old houses.

    The first stop is Son Tay Ancient Citadel. The city has a strong military history due to its proximity to the impassable Red River, and the glorious citadel, built by King Minh Mang in 1822, is one of many defence areas in the region.

    Continue to Duong Lam Ancient Village, a bastion of ancient Vietnamese farming culture. The village's tiny alleys and red laterite buildings will transport you back to a simpler time in Vietnamese history: one without modern complexities. Mong Phu Temple will be the first attraction; passing through the original village gate that was built in devotion to Duong Lam’s kings is a special feeling.

    After visiting some more ancient houses and learning about the locals' life, enjoy lunch within the laterite walls of Duong Lam or in a local restaurant.

    Bike on the quiet paths to Mia Pagoda which was built in the early 15th century and famous for its 287 statues of all size. Among these, the statue of Buddha in the Himalayas and the Eight Deities of Vajra sit underneath the ancient bell and bronze gong.

    The last stop will be a historical one to the communal houses of Ngo Quyen and Phung Hung, each built over a thousand years ago to honor two national heroes who were born here and helped to claim Vietnamese independence against the Chinese.

    Return to the car then drive back to Hanoi, where you will arrive at your hotel at about 4 P.M.
