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 vegetables.
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.
