Description

To visit Vietnam you will of course explore it's modern cities, bustling with culture and energy, but must not forget the countryside unchanged by time. A short drive from Hanoi, approximately 45 minutes, is the picturesque Red River Delta Village of Tho Ha. To get here you must also enjoy a short ferry to cross the Cau River.

The Red River Delta is an agriculturally rich area producing 20% of Vietnam’s rice crop. Despite the increasing industrialization of the area, the village of Tho Ha has remained largely unaffected by modern development. With the assistance of your guide, we will uncover tell tale reminders of the past and the historic importance this village preserves. Walk through the village’s narrow terracotta-tiled alleyways, one of the oldest materials and one of three ceramic centers remaining. Notice the many bamboo racks filled with drying rice paper, speaking to the current occupation of many of its inhabitants after the pottery industry faded.

A visit here presents an authentic portrait of a typical Vietnamese village with some of the homes dating back more than a century. Visit the 17th century Tho Ha Pagoda with its triple gate, belfry, and forecourt carved with dragons, clouds, and flowers. A conversation with a local resident will enrich your experience and provide insight to the life of the village before we return to Hanoi.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),
