Hanoi is surounded by beautiful countryside landscape. Once you get out of Hanoi, you will see the endless rice fields that stretching to horizon, interspersed groves, tranquil villages, small roads and winding rivers.
In the Red River Delta, verdant rice fields, temples and tombs dot the countryside. The familiar sceneries are: farmers harvest their crop, load on the cart pulled by a buffalo, groups of children go to school or playing traditional games. On the doorstep, grandmothers keep eyes on animals while talking with neighbors ... Conical hats bobbing on lush fields
Many traditional handicraft villages around Hanoi are well known and recognized for their artisans' talent. These are ideal places to learn about Vietnamese culture.
