    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We came across this handsome young man selling melon on his bicycle.

    His friends were selling Lychee.

    He was wearing the "green hat" so i quickly took a pic of him.

    He was amazed to see himself on a camera.

    You must be worried that you cant get onto this crowded bus.

    Dont worry, this is not the bus that we took from Hanoi to Ha Dong.

    We took Bus No. 2 from across Hoan Kien Lake to Ha Dong. Fare is only 3,000VND for a 30 mins journey.

  • Houses

    There are many beautiful houses in the Van Phuc Silk Village.I believe tourism has brought them income to own such beautiful houses.They are rather colourful too.I think most houses only paint on the main walls. The side walls are often neglected or to save some paint.

  • Repair "shop"

    I was amazed that they could set up a "shop" on the street to repair bicycles or motorbikes.This "shop" was found near the entrance of the Van Phuc Silk Village.No rental needed for "shop" space.
