The village has also been described as the last stronghold of wet rice farming culture in northern Vietnam.

We spent a wonderful day with David touring a village outside Hanoi. Saw beautiful sights, had a great lunch and learned a lot from David who is both very knowledgeable and speaks great English. Highly recommend spending a day with David. This village is very interesting to Vietnamese people therefore there were hardly any foreign tourists there. The old houses and the communal house building were genuinely authentic and so wonderful to have been preserved to show the young generation the real architecture of the past. There were also 2 great temples near by and a King’s tomb. David showed us everything with plenty of explanations. He is a genuinely fun and friendly person. I highly recommend him as a guide. The villagers are really friendly and welcomed us into their homes. We bought homemade candies and ate lunch in a 400-year old house. Lovely people, lovely village, and David is a great tour guide—both walking and biking!
Duong Lam is a really genuine slice of Vietnam and not one of the common tourist spots around Hanoi. We had a really lovely day exploring the ancient village with our fantastic guide, Kia. He was very knowledgeable and patient with all our questions. We wondered through the streets, sat and drank tea with local children wanting to practice their English with us, ate a fabulous local lunch and road bikes through countryside. Thank you Eco Tours for a really fabulous day.
The day trip to this village was one of the highlights of our stay. David was a wonderful guide taking us to a town where we were among the very few Western tourists, but also taking us to see things that were off the beaten track. We felt that we had an authentic experience with David and not just a touristy one. We visited a small family-run home where they made crackers and also had lunch at an amazing old traditional home. If we had known about David and his business Hanoi Eco Tour beforehand, we would have booked other excursions with him. He speaks excellent English, is very knowledgeable and kind and personable.
