We did this tour in conjunction with our cruise of Halong Bay. It was a truly moving experience to spend time in the small village and get to meet the people. We weren't quite sure what to expect, and chose to have a private room rather than stay with a local family. Its hard to describe, but basically like an... More

We wanted a cultural experience during my Vietnam trip so we opted for a short stay at Yen Duc village, where Tea was our guide. She was very warm and welcoming, introducing us to the several local traditions such as rice-making, dessert-making and fish-catching the Vietnamese way! Tea took us around the village on bicycles and we spoke to a... More

We wanted to spend time in a village but didn't know how we could do this with my mum who uses a walking stick. Yen Duc definitely catered for our needs. She didn't miss one thing... while we bicycled around, mum followed in a golf buggy so got to see us make rice, go fishing, make brooms. She got to... More

Definitely one of the highlights of our 2 month trip through SE Asia. What an extraordinary cultural experience. We spent 24 hours in the village, eating 3 traditional Vietnamese meals prepared by our wonderful person chef. By far the best food we had in Asia. Our host, Mr. San, was so much fun and excited to entertain. Gi was such... More

Some of you, like us, may have some reservations about extending the trip to Halong Bay. There's so much to see and do in Vietnam, and we knew every moment was precious. Well, every moment in Yen Duc village was precious. From biking around the village, to participating in local practices such as rice production, fishing, hand-broom making and shopping... More
