Description

Urbanization hasn't touched the ancient town of Dong Ngac located about 10 km from Hanoi. This quaint, beautiful village retains old architectural designs and brings history to life.
Stepping into the village will feel like stepping into a different time. You will walk on brick roads and see old buildings, among which the oldest is the village’s communal house bearing typical and unique architectural traits from Le Dynasty. In Dong Ngac village, each banyan tree, each boat port, each tile on the road has their own story.
The charm of this village is not only on its architecture but the warmth and friendliness of the locals as well. If you’re a nostalgic soul who seeks for long lost stories to reminiscence, then this is the place for you.
