What to Expect

Amid Hanoi’s expanding suburbs are numerous villages which, although no longer geographically distinct, maintain their traditions and offer the visitor a chance to step inside the soul of Vietnamese society. Dong Ngac Village, less than 15km from central Hanoi, is one such a place.

We pick you up at 08:00 AM for a short transfer outside of Hanoi, where we have this morning to learn about Hanois’ village life and its traditions and customs. We walk and cycle along the villages, visit local markets, some old houses, their worshipping temples and communal houses. Then we have a small food demonstration before our lunch at one of the local family’s houses here.

In the afternoon, we set out from Dong Ngac, cycling on mostly rural lanes through surrounding villages to Lien Mac, a beautiful area of immaculately tended vegetables and flowers. Here you will get a close-up look at the colourful fields and have the chance to chat with some of the local people out caring for their crops. After taking another route from Lien Mac back to Dong Ngac, you have a short break for a drink at your host family’s home, bid your farewells, and catch the van back to your hotel in Hanoi at around 4:30 PM.
