Just an hour outside of Hanoi lies an idyllic rural setting, home to the Moon Garden Homestay.
Not many people have heard of Ky Son - even those who have lived in Hanoi all their lives might not know this unassuming village on the outskirts of the capital, but perhaps that's a good thing. This little village may not be anything special, but that's all part of its appeal - introducing visitors to life in ordinary, everyday Vietnam.
Visitors to Ky Son come to stay at the Moon Garden Homestay, a small boutique-style resort on the edge of the village that aims to give travellers the chance to engage in traditional rural activities. 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.
