‘Duong Lam’ Ancient Village Tour

Duong Lam ancient village

The ancient village of Duong Lam on the outskirts of Hanoi is also known as a museum of laterite, home to around 300 houses built three or four centuries ago with lateritic bricks. The village has also been described as the last stronghold of wet rice farming culture in northern Vietnam.

A journey to Duong Lam village is a trip to trace back the origin of Vietnam’s culture and traditions. 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.

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.

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.

Again biking to 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 Meracus Hotel by 4:00pm.
