Join Paradissa on a half a day tour to the Thay and Tay Phuong Pagodas to know more about Buddhism in Vietnam, the fine wood carving arts and the ancient Vietnamese architecture.

The two pagodas are in the former Ha Tay Province, which is one of the oldest lands in Vietnam and which is home to many well preserved traditions and traditional handicrafts.

We travel 30 km( 45 minutes) from Hanoi to Tay Phuong Pagoda which was built in the 17th century, and is very famous for the 18 statues of La Han coated with lacquer paint.
