Approximately 30km west of Hanoi, Thay and Tay Phuong pagodas are set amid stunning limestone outcrops loom up from the green paddy fields and clinging to the cliffs. These two sites are about 20 minutes apart from each other by road. 
You will be picked up at your hotel by private car with an English speaking guide and taken to visit Thay and Tay Phuong Pagoda. The driving time is approximately 1 hour from Hanoi.  The two pagodas are about 30km west of Hanoi in Ha Tay province and 20 minutes apart from each other by road.  
 
Thay Pagoda was built in the 17th century, and is very famous for the 18 statues of La Han coated with lacquer paint. It is dedicated to Thich Ca Buddha and processes a statue of the 12th century monk Tu Dao Hanh, the master in whose honour the pagoda is named. To another side is a status of King Ly Nhan Tong, who believed to have been a reincarnation of Tu Dao Hanh.
 
After that we visit Tay Phuong Pagoda which was first built in 18 century but the earliest construction here dates from the 8th century.  This one is located at the foot of Thay Mountain and has a neat setting and Thay Pagoda. At first, it was a small pagoda managed by Priest Tu Dao Hanh. The pagoda was initially built according to Sino-Vietnamese character Tam - this character is formed by 3 hyphens parallel to each other. Return to your hotel in the afternoon.
