Phuoc Tich is a village dating back to the 15th century, located 37 kilometers to the north of the Viet Nam central province of Thua Thien Hue. Your two day visit to this beautiful area will charm you with the many cultural and architectural delights that you will experience.
Professor Dr. Arch Hoang Dao Kinh, Vice Chairman of Vietnam Association of Architects, said “Phuoc Tich has all of the cultural elements of an ancient Vietnamese village that other villages in the country have not been able to maintain”.
The quaint village runs along the gentle O Lau River with charming winding walkways along the river’s edge. You will experience the local cultural way of being in the traditional crafts, old communal houses, temples, river wharfs, and spacious ancient houses nestling in lines of evergreen trees. These are all typical features demonstrating this old village’s undamaged structure.
The Vietnamese Government recognizes the Village of Phuoc Tich as a national architectural relic. It is acknowledged as an important site for the preservation of traditional values as well as opportunities for tourists to experience the nature of Viet Nam. Phuoc Tich has been well known for its non enamel pottery craft since its golden days. Today, the production is based on orders only. The local authority is working with local artisans to support them in creating pottery products that are of high aesthetic value.
You can visit Phuoc Tich ancient houses (known as “Nha Ruong”) which are between 100 to 500 years old and still well preserved. You can visit an ancient traditional house 130 years old. Almost all of the houses are built from ironwood with tiled roofs and graceful green fences. There are lacquered vertical boards running within the house structure except for the space in front of the alter where the boards run horizontally.
You will stay for the night in the Quang Ngan commune by the Tam Giang Lagoon. After a restful night, you take a boat trip on the Lagoon where you can watch the local fishermen using their traditional methods of fishing. You head back for Hue in the afternoon.
This is a relaxing 2 days where you get to explore the two beautiful areas of Phuoc Tich Village and Tam Gianag Lagoon and have the opportunity to see the traditional ways of life of Vietnamese people who live in both areas.
