Tour overview

Located about 50km west of Hanoi, Duong Lam is considered one of the oldest villages in Vietnam with a history that is said to date back more 1,200 years. Most of the village’s traditional features have survived the ravages of war-time, and many of its shrines, communal halls, streets and trees give the place an authenticity that is probably unmatched elsewhere. So far, ten of the ancient houses have received national recognition and nearly 1,000 traditional houses await more preservation efforts. However, recent visitors have found traditional houses being replaced by the typical three-to-four storey matchbox houses found throughout the country, especially in urban and semi-urban areas.
