This is a small village which has somehow made tourism a major business. Countless tour groups come here to see Mr. Viet's wife make rice paper and hear Mr. Viet play and sing. In spite of the fact that there are so many groups visiting here, it really seems authentic and real. We visited as part of Overseas Adventure Travels... More

We reached the village at around 11 O'clock and were disappointed to find out that the rice paper making activity is done early morning. So we couldn't see the process of making rice paper! We only managed to see the drying stage of the process. Thousands of boards were spread through out the village, it was a nice sight. I'd... More

Never have seen a town collectively work so hard at thier living. The people in town were very friendly and warm. Good for a half day. There is a small... More

We had a great day with the Tho Ha village and Do Temple. Our guide was great at showing us all around the village with temple, pagodas, school and also the local house where we could meet actual local person, enjoyed the local alcohol and had time learning to make the local rice paper.

We had an amazing day trip to Tho Ha village and a 0$ food tour in Hanoi as the promotion. This village is well-protected from the noisy town and only reachable by a ferry. The village is small and our guide showed us all corner of it: From the pagoda to temple and the local houses where they truly made... More

If visiting this village you should take time to explore it's narrow lanes, where most houses thrive on making rice paper rolls. Trek further in and come to padi fields with hundreds of ducks and even one or two free horses.

Tho An Village is truly a Vietnamese reality show. Just getting here is a challenge, however, enjoyable. Crossing the river on an old, one vehicle ferry is the beginning of the experience. This is a 550 year old village of about 2000 inhabitants. The alley ways are very narrow, about 1 meter wide. The rice paper making process is very... More

Asia Top Travel picked us up promptly and drove into the countryside past interesting French architecture and then to a small town. We then rode a ferry across to Tho Ha which is truly back in time. We visited a Community house and met the elder who served us nice hot tea. We then walked through the village and saw... More

This certainly should be on your to do list. We came on Saturday which added to the interest with the local market open. Never mind the ferry crossing. The alleyways are amazing. Too bad it was misting when we came, so we did not see any of the rice paper being dried outside. Even so, the place is so different... More

An opportunity to see a small Vietnamese village that hasn't changed much over hundreds of years. The friendly hard working villagers lead a very basic lifestyle. We spent almost half a day there wandering around.with our guide, during which time we mat the Chief of the Village/Mayor, who invited us into his home. Although we couldn't speak his language nor...
