Hanoi City Walk (English) p.m – Trúc Bạch Lake & Ngũ Xã – FULL
February 27, 2022 @ 3:00 PM - 5:30 PM100,000VND
This walk is currently full. Please RSVP for the waiting list and/or a repeat walk
The theme of this wak is very eclectic touuching on bronze casting, and the general changes to the area, the former and present lives of the land and buildings. Meet outside Đền Quán Thánh, the almost purely Taoist temple with 350-year-old bronze statue of Trấ́́n Vũ. We refer to legends around Trúc Bạch lake – stories, history of the area, the part the young people played in Hanoi’s reconstruction after the French war, and silk making in the old days. On Ngũ Xã island at the east end of Trúc Bạch lake we hear about how a special bronze statue was made and how the fame of the island turned from bronze to food. The walk ends outside the Đúc Đồng Ngũ Xã bronze casting showroom at 178 Trấn Vũ – home and business of Mr Nguyễn Văn Ưng, whose family has over 400years bronze casting history. Note that the key places of workship that feature in this walk are still closed so we will add a small diversion to the usual route to make up for time.
