Itinerary      

Travel to the outskirt of Hanoi on the back of a motorbike or simply ride one for yourself, it's real fun. After an hour passing the countryside, we arrive at Tho Ha village, surrounded by the water of the Cau river.

Tho Ha is among good example of a Vietnamese village that somehow escapes urbanization. Here, life goes on the way it has been for many years. The design of the village follows the Vietnamese architecture with narrow alleys winding way through the community. Among the special things, are the coffin walls. Many of them are built from...ceramic coffins (well, no corpse inside). Once upon a time, they were made for sale.

People of Tho Ha have changed to making rice paper - an integral part of the famous Vietnamese "Nem" or Spring Roll. It is 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 shots.
