About 15 kilometers from Hoan Kiem Lake in downtown Hanoi City lies the ancient village of Khuc Thuy, nestled by the Nhue River for centuries. Located in Thanh Oai District, Khuc Thuy Village is a haven for those who love nostalgia.

The ancient village gate, streets lined with old shade trees, and peaceful small alleys filled with moss inspire every visitor. Many houses over 100 years old are still preserved, and local residents continue to live slowly and leisurely.
