Hanoi – Hai Duong Farm – Homestay

This morning we will take a 2-hour drive to the beautiful village of Ngoc Hoa. This village is praised as a countryside version of Old Hanoi for the co-incident similarity in settings, with 5 entrances to the village and a beautiful lake in the middle of the community.

Once we arrive, we will check into the homestay and start our exciting stay with a cooking class. You will prepare lunch with ingredients picked from the garden or purchased from the local market. Your cooking talents will surprise you as you enjoy the lunch you prepared.

After lunch, we will cycle through this beautiful village on the country lanes shaded by lychee trees, meeting friendly villagers and visiting the Ca Temple which showcases the village history and spirit. There will be so many wonderful photo opportunities during this cycling loop thanks to green gardens, impressive lakes, and beautiful houses.

In the mid-afternoon when the sun starts to go down, we will do our work in the garden including hoeing soil and transplanting tropical vegetable.

We will enjoy a BBQ dinner tonight. After dinner, you may relax or take part in a fun traditional game soil crackers with the village kids.

Farming Work Experience – Stork Island – Hanoi

Should you wish to experience the village market, please get up before 6:30 AM and walk with a member of the host family.

Back to the homestay and enjoy breakfast.

We will then wear our traditional farmer outfits and start our farming work in the rice field, including plowing, scooping and transplanting wet rice, while the process of cultivating and harvesting rice is explained by a local farmer. You can try riding a water buffalo too.

We will get back to the homestay by lunch. Taking some time to clean ourselves up from the muddy experience, we then enjoy our delicious lunch.

In the afternoon, we will board our bamboo boat and row along the stunning river. We will approach the local fishermen to learn their technic of using their net and rowing their boat in a unique way. The boat ride offers a really nice view of the village from the water and many great opportunities for photographers.

We will then say goodbye to the homestay and drive 10kms to the famous Stork Island in Chi Lang Nam Commune. The island is in the middle of a large natural lake and home to about ten thousand storks and herons and various species of birds such as pelicans and teals. We will take a rowing boat to approach the island to see the birds closer but not walk on.

We will then drive back to Hanoi (or the next destination: Ha Long Bay, Nam Dinh or Ninh Binh).

Best experience at Vietnam with Asia Trip Deals

Thank you Emma and Asia Trip Deals for arranging an awesome and unforgettable vacation in Vietnam. We were 4 friends who were planning for Vietnam and were confused about how to kick start and complete our trip in 10 days within budget. Right then we got in touch with Emma and she handled everything for us, starting from our trip itinerary, domestic flights, accommodations and must-visit places. Our entire trip was fun-filled and knowledgeable, all thanks to the tour guides provided to us, they were super friendly, helpful and filled with enthusiasm. The trip deal included a few good dining options to enjoy local food, loved it. We strongly recommend Asia trip deals if you are planning a trip to a place you have never been to before. The team is very responsive and on top when it comes to communication, just to make sure the trip is as planned.

Amazing Vietnam and Cambodia personalized tour

My husband and I had not been to Vietnam or Cambodia before. We wanted a tour of the main tourist stops and also to explore some parts ourselves. Emma did a fantastic job of guiding us through the options and creating a personalized itinerary.

We were very extremely happy with her choice of comfortable mid-range hotels located close to shops, markets and local restaurants so we didn’t need transport to get around. Any changes, no matter how small were communicated by Emma in advance. She kept in touch all through to check we were safe and having a good time.
The tour guides and drivers entertained us with their jokes on the longer journeys and were great company throughout.

All the internal flights, pick-ups and drop-offs from the airport were taken care of as well as all entrance fees for the sites/attractions. This takes the hassle of haggling about transport costs and options, especially in view of the huge figures in exchange rates that involved dealing in thousands and millions of Vietnam Dong. There is a big tipping culture, so be prepared to have plenty of spare cash for this, but most places also accept American dollars.

Due to the personal service from Emma and attention to detail, our trip was hassle-free, leaving us free to soak up the atmosphere, sights and smells that have left us feeling we would like to return and explore more next time. The highlight for me was the overnight cruise along Halong Bay. It was so calm and peaceful, just what I needed!! I would thoroughly recommend Emma and Asia Trip Deals, if like me you just want a holiday and not the stress of spending hours trawling through the internet looking for hotel/flight deals and places to visit.
