Ha Thai Village

Duyen Thai commune, Thuong Tin district, Ha Noi
Like all other ancient villages in the Red River Delta, Ha Thai has a communal house and pagoda for worshipping the village founder. Unlike most villages it is also famous far and wide for its distinguished lacquer ware that has existed for over 2000 years.
