Duong Lam Village – Tay Phuong Pagoda
Immerse in ancient Vietnamese culture with an excursion to Duong Lam, one of the country’s few remaining ancient villages. Situated northwest of Hanoi, a tour through Duong Lam is a great way to explore the area’s twelve-hundred year history. Explore houses over 400 years old, wander the village’s narrow alleyways, visit local temples, and most interestingly of all, chat with friendly locals. Last stop will be at Tay Phuong Pagoda, one of the first pagodas built in Vietnam and home to beautiful architecture, as well as ancient unique sculptures.
