Walking Tour In Ngoc Ha Village

Ngoc Ha located in the city center of Hanoi but it is just like an oasis in Hanoi city. It was used to be village that grew the flowers and bonzai and as famous as many former flower villages, such as Nhật Tân, Nghi Tàm, Quảng Bá, Tứ Liên.

In the process of urbanization, Ngọc Hà village has been changed rapidly from 1992 when local villagers sold their land to rich strangers then also had the money to build their own new houses. Then they start building their beautiful villas and houses as they found it to be the ideal place to stay in Hanoi. Even it is changed quite a lot in appearance, but the life of the local people here is still going on like it did a hundred years ago, and there is still a very strong sense of community like in any village in Vietnam.

The walk starts from Chezlinhlinh House through the zig-zag road inside the village to the gate of Dai Yen villagethe neighbor village of Herbs. Each village ought to have a gate to control all of activities and it is also the area where they often set-up the market for all of its peoples. Here you could witness the sellers and buyer for vegetables, foods… as well as for breakfast.

Continue trip to the center of Ngoc Ha flower village you will find how to find the road easily and the most interesting thing when you take a walk through the village is watching and experiencing the life of the local people. Most of the houses along the main path of the village are involved in some kind of business, and things are very busy anytime of the day. Many of them are small restaurants, grocery stores, hairdresser’s shops, motorbike and bicycle repair shops or even kindergartens….. Just walk along the path, and you can really feel and see the way people live here. The people are very friendly and a little bit curious as there are not many tourists coming to this village. There will be lots of chances to interact with them on the walk as well.

At the end of the walk, there will be a surprise for you. In the middle of the lake named Huu Tiep, you can see the wreckage of a B52 that was shot down in the famous Christmas bombing of 1972. The wreckage is now a monument for the victory of Hanoi people in the famous 12 day battle called “Dien Bien Phu in the air”. Now the wreckage is lying peacefully in the middle of the lake as a famous vestige in the village.

Next to the lake is village communal house. As in all the other villages, it is the meeting place for the people on special occasions.  From here, you can have a good view of the new and modern buildings in the village. Then we can take a walk back to Chezlinhlinh House.
