Duong Lam Village


Located in Sơn Tây Town, 40 km to the west of Hanoi, Đường Lâm village is a very popular tourist destination at the weekends. The village attracts visitors because of its ancient houses and the architectural features of a typical old Vietnamese village with banyan trees and a wharf on the river. Join us on a tour of Đường Lâm village with reporter Lan Anh.

It takes just over an hour to get to Đường Lâm village. On the road leading up to the village, tourists can feel the peaceful atmosphere. The rice fields these days are in their prime while lotus ponds will soon be in bloom signaling the coming of the summer. Passing through the village gate to Mông Phụ village, visitors should not miss taking photo of the gate, which is in the typical architectural style of an old Vietnamese village. Nguyễn Trọng An is Deputy Head of the village’s Management Board 'Of the 5 hamlets in Đường Lâm village, Mông Phụ is seen as the center, as it has many historical sites including communal houses, old houses, and the clan’s worshipping house. Of course, the 4 remaining hamlets also have important relics, a regular must-see for tourists'.
