Hanoi is known as an urban area in hustle and bustle most of the time. You might have experienced the quiet charming Hanoi in midnight or early morning, but have you seen such a Hanoi during working hours when millions of people are moving crazily on streets?
Hanoi has been developed great in the last century, which makes it an ideal place for people from small cities to come and find economic opportunities. While most people prefer living in modern part of city, there are many people who can't afford it due to unemployment or a low income. The unoccupied wilderness of Hanoi thus turned into residential areas for those still seeking out a living - thus gradually morphing into whole communities.
Join us in our Unseen Hanoi Journey to discover the quintessential life of a working class community in Hanoi. Just take a short walk of 10-15 minutes on one of the oldest bridge of Hanoi, you will get out of the busy and noisy Old Quarter. After that we are visiting a floating village by the Red River. From the first step into the area, you will enjoy the great vibe here as a big garden with plenty of trees and flower. This is a true countryside in the middle of the capital. You will have a chance to talk to locals living under the bridge, get to know their daily life by joining their daily activities such as: weeding hoe, plant seeds or trees, picking vegetable in the farm, catching chicken and joining cooking in their floating house for lunch.
