Sau Village a rare vestige of rural charms

Award winning photographer Nguyen Huu Thong, a native of the northern province of Bac Giang Province, where the village is located, has captured for posterity scenes of great beauty and charm.

Smoke from burning straw seems to become or blend into low lying clouds at sunset in this landscape shot along the Thuong River at the foot of Danh Mountain in Tan Yen District. 

Bac Giang Province is around 50 kilometers from Hanoi.

The local legend is that the village had for its backdrop a mountain in the shape of a squirrel, a mascot often worshiped in front of temples. The legend gives the village its name.
