The ancient village of Duong Lam on the outskirts of Hanoi is also known as a museum of laterite, home to around 300 houses built three or four centuries ago with lateritic bricks.
The village has also been described as the last stronghold of wet rice farming culture in northern Vietnam.
A journey to Duong Lam village is a trip to trace back the origin of Vietnam's culture and Vietnam's traditions. This is also the great chance explore architecture of ancient houses while wander along its narrow alleyways, visit temples dedicated to the two kings born there, and most interesting of all, chat with locals living in the ancient houses.
At 8. 30 AM you are picked up at your hotel then drive to Duong Lam old village where you can see traditional house made of laterite, rammed soiled.
