Detailed Itinerary
  Hanoi – Duong Lam Village – Hanoi (L, G):   
Depart from your hotel at 8:30 am for the 1.5 hour drive west of Hanoi to Duong Lam Village, representing a purely traditional side of Hanoi. Many of the houses of Duong Lam are over a hundred years old, the streets are cobbled and the pitted surface of the brick walls resemble beehives, shaped from mud and baked in the sun. Visit Mong Phu temple, the only hamlet where the original village entrance has withstood the tests of time, weather and war. Continue on through the narrow alleys to see the old laterite houses which make up this charming village.

After lunch at authentic local house with traditional cuisine, continue driving to Mia Pagoda, some 287 statues of all sizes can be seen here, among with are famous sculptures such as the statue of Buddha and the statues of the "Eight Vajra Deities". Then, visit Ngo Quyen temple and Phung Hung temple, places dedicated to two national heroes.

On the way back to Hanoi we will stop at Tay Phuong Pagoda, offering beautiful architecture and ancient and unique sculptures. It was one of the first pagodas built in Vietnam and has magnificent dragons and demons carved into the wooden roof.

From here continue back to Hanoi, where your fantastic cultural day tour will end.
