The historic Tho Ha countryside village
- Get on a local ferry for a short ride across the river to Tho Ha village which preserves lots of old houses and is home to some traditional crafts
- Meet a folk musician – a veteran – whose family has been living here for generations, learn how to make rice paper from his wife and enjoy his music performance.
This morning, take a 45-minute drive to the suburban of Hanoi, following by a small ferry across the Cau River to Tho Ha, a peaceful villa which still remains quite unaffected by modern development. Hundreds years ago this village is famous for making pottery, but due to the tough competition and the changes of economy, most of the families here are now live by producing rice paper and raising pigs, chicken. You will zigzag through the matrix of small alleys along the old houses, occasionally see some piggeries or coops built in the house wall. You might be feel strange with the smell and hygiene, but this feature brings you the real experience of how the ancient village used to be. Visit Tho Ha pagoda and temple, and stop at a local house to find out more about the village through the eyes of a resident, learn to make some rice paper and enjoy the music performance of this veteran. Drive back to Hanoi.
