This was just the excursion I needed--a fun, relaxing, informative trip to an interesting site. I also enjoyed traveling from downtown Hanoi through the countryside. It was an opportunity to see a different side of Vietnam that I was accustomed. I was fortunate to take the tour with Vietlines Tourism. It was a well-organized outing--just the right pace. Jane, the tour guide, made the tour especially pleasant. She was informative, interesting and it was a joy to have a conversation with her. Great trip.

Autumn is the best time to visit. The rice is being harvested, the cob corn drying, the straw is drying. The smells of the countryside were truly wonderful and the colors and rural life so real. At this time of year this was real picture book vietnam... Enjoy....

A peaceful village in the middle of rice fields! The old houses did not impress me much but the daily life of the local, running pigs, chickens on the village's roads and the religion + beliefs with some nice temples and pagodas make me feel different!

Great experience !

The village is very nice and traditional with hundred year's old houses. I love the old gate that was made by bridge and it has a very big trees. This village has a very old pagoda called Chua Mia ( Sugar cane pagoda). There is a church in the village also. I come to a restaurant in the village where there is an old lady selling green tea and cakes. Our group stayed in a local people's house, we had a good lunch with chicken and drink local people wine.

Should go with a good tour guide, who can explain you about the structure of an ancient village in the north of Vietnam, the village's culture, the way they make broken soybean jam there
