Home-stay in Duong Lam Ancient village

by nanghong1012 » Mon Dec 21, 2009 9:27 am

Duong Lam is 50km to the west of Hanoi. The unique village, which was recognized as a National Cultural-Historic Relic, has houses which are around 200 years old. Of the nine hamlets within Duong Lam Village, Dong Sang and Mong Phu have maintained the most ancient houses: 441 and 350, respectively, among the total 956 traditional houses. The old Duong Lam Village is famous for its homes made of laetrile, a type of red soil. Most of these houses have their own courtyards surrounded by a laetrile wall.

From 2009, in order to meeting a highly increasing home-stay demand from our clients, the owner of mother company of Mekonghalongbaycruise.com invested and completed a very special product which would bring unforgettable memories of an ancient-style house. The house romantically named Vuon Trang (Moon Garden) offers visitors not only a peaceful atmosphere of Hanoi suburban but a specious chance to really join in and explore daily activities of Vietnamese in countryside

The house is designed strictly following the Viet ancient architectural style with 3 double beds (1.6mx2m) + 1 extra bed (1mx1.8 m) + 2 toilettes (1 toilet inside + 1 toilet outside) + kitchen. The surrounding is design with vegetable garden, small pond, bonsai garden, and playground in front of welcome house where will be the perfect place for enjoy fragrant Vietnamese tea under moonlight in full moon evenings

With the concept of preserving the quite and peaceful atmosphere and avoid the mass tourism attack to countryside, we decided the maximum capacity of Moon Garden is at 4 adults in double and 3 children. This group size is large enough for funny team-joining activities while small enough to avoid noisy and disturb to neighbors.
