Visit ky son

Situated 55km west of Hanoi, Ky Son is an authentic Vietnamese village, home to around a hundred farming families and many traditional houses of which some are over 200 years old. This little village, may not be anything special, but that's all part of its appeal - introducing visitors to life in ordinary, everyday Vietnam.

The main reason to visit Ky Son is to stay at the Moon Garden Homestay - a small boutique-style resort on the edge of the village which offers guests the opportunity to interact with the locals, experience unique activities and gain a true insight into traditional Vietnamese life. Surrounded by paddy fields and farms, this is the perfect setting to get stuck into some ploughing or tea harvesting, to take a leisurely cycle ride amongst villages and pagodas, or to try your hand at Vietnamese cooking.
