Nom Village

Located 30 kilometers east of Hanoi and belonging to Dai Dong commune (Van Lam district, Hung Yen province), Nom village, the most famous one in Kinh Bac region and one of the two most ancient villages in Vietnam (ranked below Duong Lam village in Hanoi), was the main supplier for bronze money and hardware casting’s materials.

Nom village has a nice layout comprising ponds, worshipping houses, and residential houses with 2 entrances including the 200-year-old front one leading to the south-east and the recently added back one connecting the north-west.  It owns more than 10 ancient houses, an old communal house aged since the later Le dynasty, a newer one built in the Nguyen dynasty, and 7 clan ancestral houses. The highlight of the village is not only the stunning complex of a common house, a banyan tree, and an ancient well which features the typical village of the Northern area of Vietnam but also the warm hospitality and friendly way of life of local people living here. Luckily, all things remain unchanged after many years and little affected by the quick urbanization of modern life.
