Duong Lam Village Ha Tay

Duong Lam Village of Ha Tay Province is over 50km from Hanoi and can be day-tripped by bike, by motorbike or by car. Duong Lam Village and others nearby have been in a poor area of Vietnam, and maybe that's the good reason that some old buildings survive the damage of time, of wars... and keep on boasting the weathered atmosphere and quaint old feel as you walk your way through the narrow roads flanked with houses built of sandstone...

Though not all old buildings in the village are "old", as some well-to-do families nowadays tend to build houses copying those of the past, but it's not hard at all to find an architecture of 300-400 hundred years old walking about the communities. Though poor as it was and has been, Duong Lam was home to some great and influential people of Vietnam including King Phung Hung (8th-9th century A.D), King Ngo Quyen (10th century A.D) who laid the foundation of what is Vietnam nowadays; Phan Family - Mandarinal family with the patriot Phan Ke Toai who were a famous mandarin under the Nguyen Dynasty, a government official in the Japanese-backed government and later in the Minister of Internal Affairs in Ho Chi Minh's government.
