What you can expect

A journey to Duong Lam village is an inspirational trip back to the origin of Vietnam's culture and traditions. This ancient village has a history of about 1,200 years with many houses dating back to 400 years. This tour is your chance to explore this picturesque village with me, a local host. I can guide you through the narrow alleyways, show you the must-see sights, and introduce you to the local artisans, vendors and farmers.

On this private tour I can also show you the hidden gems that you wouldn’t normally discover by yourself. And, I can show you the best places to enjoy lunch. Any special preferences or dietary needs? I can guide you to the eateries that answer your preferences.

Duong Lam is the home of two breath-takingly beautiful temples: the Ngo Quyen temple and the Phung Hung temple, dedicated to two kings born here who became national heroes. Both men led resistance wars against northern invasion and after winning national independence

We can also cycle to the 700 year-old Mia Pagoda, known as the pinnacle of traditional Vietnamese traditional architecture. Its 287 Buddha statues each has its own expression, design, and color and are renowned as some of the most beautiful in all Vietnam.

This is a 100% private tour just for you. So while we stroll, if you want to see something closer we can – there is no strict itinerary. Also ask me any travel questions that spring to mind. I have plenty of stories to tell about the ancient village, and if you would like more insights, just ask.

Also if there is anything in particular that you want to see or do in Huong Lam, just let me know and I’ll do my best to make it happen. See you soon.
