A visit to Cuu Village
Cuu Village is an ancient village of Hanoi, in Van Tu Commune, Phu Xuyen District, about 40 km from Hanoi’s center. Entering the village entrance, you see an ancient and nostalgic world, attracting visitors to a quiet and peaceful land.
Many people still live in old houses of over 100 years old in Cuu Village. However, there are a few abandoned French villas without owners. The abandoned houses are now covered with moss, full of dry leaves in the garden, bare walls and closed gates. When sun rays sparkle, all the space becomes brighter.
Surrounding Cuu Village, suddenly you will hear the sound of rustling bamboo brooms, barking dogs and the slight wind.
Walking around the blue stone path, narrow alleys of the Cuu Village, we not only feel peaceful and calm but also feelan ancient and taciturn style. Quiet spaces also make the atmosphere gloomy.
The golden age of the Cuu Village was a long time ago, but we always feel the bustling, wealth of the “Tailor Village of Hanoi”.
The time in the Cuu Village seems slower. Cuu Village has a quaint beauty, where you can find traditional values and become immersed in nostalgic feelings.
Cuu Village is also where photographers and those with great passion for art unwind with the ancient inspiration of this land.
You can even chat with local people to hear the old stories and learn about the years of prosperity before.
Cuu Village would be an interesting destination for tourists to go back in time.
