Although the road to there was not really attractive and quite dusty we all loved this tour which gave us a chance to discover one of the oldest traditional cultural villages in Vietnam. Most of the houses walls were made of laterite and mud in old architecture, a long tile roofed house with 3 to 5 compartments, a small courtyard is set among. The scenery is adorned with areca, bamboo and rice paddy fields. Our tour guide took us to the well maintained nearly 400 year old house which housed 13 generations and told many interesting tales about this village. Thank Visit Wonder for this superb experience.
