For those who want to escape the noise and bad air of the old city area

It's hard to say Vietnamese country life, but you can enjoy rural life at an affordable distance outside Hanoi city. Farming can be enjoyed moderately depending on the weather of the day. The housewife's homemade lunch was also a little helping and it was fun and very delicious. This is the most memorable sightseeing tour.
