Review on Biking tour full day in Hanoi toursTour highlights
Thay Pagoda, lying to the west ofHanoi in an area rich in history. Chua Thay meaning Masters Pagoda, is dedicated to the 12th century teacher Tu Dao Hanh. On the main altar you can see a statue of the monk. The pagoda structure speaks for itself with its serene atmosphere and beauty. With over 100 statues filling the prayer halls, two 15th century bridges and the impressive water-puppet stage it is little wonder that this pagoda is so famous.
Tay Phuong pagoda, lies just to the west, it offers beautiful architecture and ancient and unique sculptures. It was one of the first pagodas built inVietnam. See the dragons and demons carved into the wooden roof. We make a stop for a picnic-lunch where you please, in the temple gardens or around the pagoda itself..
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 Vietnams culture and Vietnams 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.
