Hong village is approximately 600 years old and has been preserved as a world heritage site. At the center of the town is a man made water reserve to hold water for washing, cleaning and for good Feng shui.
There is also a man made lake to the south of town.
A river runs across the edge of town. This side is technically the “new side” and is more modern.
The town is mostly based on tourism now but its still beautiful to walk down its many narrow streets and alleys.
A lot of people in town make various hot sauces. Yes, they are very spicy, you can hardly walk by without getting a nose full.
The process of making a local crepe like flat-bread.
It rained for the last two days we were there. The village was built for water though. Streams run alongside the buildings rain or shine and you can always hear the rain falling into the courtyards while you relax or sleep.
There are lots of gardens and farms on the edge of the village.
A beautiful misty morning on our way out of town.
