The most impressive memory for this trip is I enjoyed the fresh countryside air. This village has no sign of tourism, people are still doing mostly farming. 1 special is there are many ancient houses, some of them with nearly 200 years history. You can hire a bicycle and travel around the village to discover this place and see how it is totally different from busy life in Ha Noi city.

Duong Lam is the symbol of Vietnamese village. Here still remains traditional style houses, traditional life style. If you wanna know about Vietnam in the past you should visit this place. Now there are a lot of tourism service to serve tourists but it's not really enough professional. This place is suitable for ppl who like to explore old things

Only 50min drive by coach service, the village will appear in front of you with the gate was made from more than hundred years ago. In this village there is no sign of tourism, people are still doing mostly farming.

If you look for a place with nice rice field and you want to go by riding bicycle around the village, then Duong Lam is the place.
The only downside is that the food is quite simple and lack of activities for more than 1 day visit

An ancient village mixed with modern house. After ages but the ancient house must be kept just for tourist visiting and the people have to stay in a strict management of government. They are not allow to renovate their houses or making any new. T

I was very exciting about this short trip. Actually the trip was nice enough. I could enjoy my day of cycling around the village, speaking with nice local people, visiting some remain very nice northern style houses. But some of local people are quite commercial. When I wanted to rent bicycle, they asked for a sum of money that I found a bit expensive. And there aren't much traditional houses left there. Anyway, it's worth to visit for one time.
