Itinerary      

Be picked up from your hotel, you can choose to ride the bike or have a local rider manouvering out of Hanoi traffic. We will ride though the town and the countryside of Hanoi suburb for an hour. This ride is exciting as you are a part of the traffic. Arriving in Tho Ha, we will be using the ferry to cross the Cau river to the otherside - where the village is.

Surrounded by the river and the green fields - Tho Ha is among good example of a Vietnamese village that somehow stays further from urbanization. Here, life goes on the way it has been for many years. One can see village kids playing by the communal house, under the shade of the old banyan trees, or people cycling to work in the field. The design of the village folllows the Vietnamese architecture with narrow alleys winding way through the community. The unique thing that can only be found at Tho Ha is the walls of the houses. Many of them are built from ceramic coffins (well, no corpse inside). Why? Once people here made them for sale, till a day they decided to change their business and the remained coffins were used for this unpresidented purpose.

People of Tho Ha have then been involved in the making of rice paper - an integral part of Vietnamese famous "Nem". It becomes truly photogenic when seeing the local hanging rice paper on the bamboo lattice, and then putting these lattice racks on house roof, village alleys or any open space for drying. Under certain light, these rice papers make perfect golden patches for your photogrpahy.
