The village has also been dubbed as the last stronghold of wet rice farming culture in northern Vietnam. The ancient houses are run by families who have lived on and worked on the land for generations. Enjoy hands-on activities such as walking tour, cycling, chatting with locals living in the ancient houses, devouring great local foods supply in tours, and paying a visit to the pagoda.
