PROGRAM DETAILS

Transfer from Hanoi to Giong Temple, around 50-minutes drive from central Hanoi. Thanh Giong was a saint who helped defend invading Chinese armies during the Le Dynasty in 980. His legendry status has created a hero worship surrounding his name and the temple built in his honour is an intriguing complex. After the visit drive to Thanh Chuong Palace. Once there explore Thanh Chuong’s studio which is filled with antiques the artist has painstakingly collected over the course of his life. Ceramics, statues, art and sculptures fill the awe-inspiring ‘House of the Auspicious Clouds’. Surrounding the structure is a perfectly preserved 100-year old stilt house from the Muong hill tribe. The ‘House of Serenity’ a typical Northern Vietnamese-style house dating back some hundred years. As well as this there is a simple earthen house and other antique structures which offer fascinating insight intoVietnam’s cultural legacy.

Enjoy a Vietnamese style lunch before returning to Hanoi.        (L)
