Tour to Nom Village & Nom Pagoda - 1/2 Day

A half a day tour from Hanoi to Nom Village and Nom Pagoda in Hung Yen, northern Vietnam.

Some long time ago, northern Vietnam was known for idyllic villages with slow-paced agrarian life. The villages were surrounded by vast rice fields and thick bamboo groves. The farmers were genuine and friendly. Country kids enjoyed a great carefree life playing cheerfully by their buddies and dear water buffaloes all day long…

Then came the wars, several of them, destructive ones. All quickly turned to be ruins. Beautiful life, ancient architectures and old buildings lasted mostly in fading memories… Somewhere deep in the Red River Delta, there was a miracle: the old monuments and architectures survived the destruction of wars, defied the destruction of natural disasters and time. The village has a strangely yet utterly Vietnamese name: Nom Village.

0800 A.M Paradissa’ team pick you up from your hotel in Hanoi for an hour drive through the Red River Delta. There are plenty of opportunities of taking photos of rice paddies should it be in the season.

Arriving at the Nom Village, have wonderful time adoring the lovely old houses and learn about local way life. We’ll take a stroll around the waterfront paths taking photographs of the amazing scenes. We certainly have to have enough time at the amazing community house of the village. Then proceed to Nom Pagoda, a 17th Buddhist Pagoda with gorgeous setting and architecture.

Leaving the zen atmosphere of Nom Pagoda, we’ll visit the unbelievable Nom Market which was something of decades ago! It is about mid day that we conclude our fantastic tour and travel back to Hanoi.
