Today's tour will begin at 08:30. Travel back in time with a visit to Duong Lam ancient village. Set off from Hanoi after breakfast and travel west, passing through the scenic North Red River Delta on the 1.5-hour drive.

Arrive in Duong Lam ancient village, a purely agricultural village which was founded 1200 years ago. Take a walking tour through the village, experiencing the dramatic difference from Hanoi’s busy streets and Duong Lam’s tranquil pace.

For lunch enjoy a local style meal in a 100-year old house.

After lunch, continue driving to Mia Pagoda (located in another hamlet of Duong Lam), built in the 15th century. Admire the 287 statues of all sizes can be seen here, among which are famous sculptures such as the statue of Buddha and the statues of the ‘Eight Vajra Deities’. Then, visit Ngo Quyen temple and Phung Hung temple, places dedicated to two national heroes - Ngo Quyen and Phung Hung.

On the return to Hanoi stop at Tay Phuong Pagoda, one of Vietnam’s first pagodas. Admire Tay Phuong’s beautiful architecture and unique sculptures such as the dragons and demons carved into the wooden roof.

From here it’s a 45-60-minute drive back to Hanoi, arriving in the capital late this afternoon. (L)
