Tho Ha Handicraft Village

Photograph and explore life in a traditional handicraft village along Vietnam's Red River Delta

Explore one of the Northern Vietnam’s best-preserved traditional handicraft villages on this unique half-day photo adventure. We head out to Tho Ha, a riverside village renowned for its charming architecture and production of rice paper pancakes. 

Tho Ha handicraft village retains the mud-brick houses and winding, narrow alleyways typical of the old Red River Delta, among which residents spread out their rice paper to dry. 

On our way back to Hanoi we’ll stop by Bo Da pagoda, one of the region’s most sacred ancient sites. 

Learn the art of travel photography while discovering the true traditional life of the Red River Delta.
