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.

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)
