    Located 40 km to the west of Hanoi, Duong Lam ancient village in Son Tay town is one of must-visit tourist destinations of the capital city because of its unique historical, architectural, cultural values.

    In recent years, Duong Lam people have been working to preserve the village’s tourism environment, which is characterized by banyan trees, river wharves, communal house yards, and pagodas.

    Duong Lam is famous for the birthplace of Phung Hung, a military leader who briefly reigned over Vietnam during the 8th century, and King Ngo Quyen, who ruled in the 10th century.

    Ten of the 97 ancient houses in the village have been recognized as national relics with 50 other sites, including temples, pagodas, shrines, and ancient wells.

    Tour guide Ha Thi Thu Huong, a Duong Lam native, says the well-known destinations in Duong Lam are clean because visitors are recommended to put garbage the right places. 

    She added, "Visitors to Duong Lam are always full of admiration for the ancient village and its well-preserved customs, architecture, and culture. Tourists are told to dispose of garbage in the right places  to keep the village green, clean, and beautiful.”

    Nguyen Trong An, Deputy Head of Duong Lam ancient village management board, said each year the village welcomes 50,000 visitors. The local administration has asked local households to abide by rules on  environmental protection and garbage collection.  

    "We’ve told the locals that keeping the environment hygiene, first and foremost, is for our own life, rather than for tourists, the government, or anyone else. It is a good way to impress visitors," An said.
