Welcome to Golden Rice Boutique Hotel - The 396m-long Street of Hang Trong is located in Hang Trong Ward, Hoan Kiem District of Hanoi. The Street was named Hang Theu in the early 20th century and Jules Ferry during the time of French colonialism. After 1945 it was once again renamed to its moniker...
The Street was once famous for the traditional crafts of making folk paintings, drums for festivals and worshiping rituals, parasols, trunks, pennons, palanquins and embroidery. Apart from local residents, many talented artisans who came from every corner of the country settled down on the street or worked in painting and printing workshops. They brought with them their skills in making traditional handicrafts, such as making drums from the people of Lieu Thuong (present-day Yen My District, Hai Duong Province), making parasols from Dao Xa (present-day Thuong Tin – Hanoi) and creating paintings from Tu Thap.
Over the years Hang Trong painting has been known as one of the most typical folk paintings in Thang Long-Hanoi in particular and Vietnam in general.... Differing from the Dong Ho folk painting genre, Hang Trong paintings are created with very refined dark and light hues that is due to the combination of printing strokes with black colour by woodblocks and using soft brushes to apply colours to the paintings. The paintings, mainly on the themes of daily life, ancient tales and worshipping rites, are usually printed on Do (poonah) or large-sized papers.
Hang Trong Street today is the hub of painting workshops and luxurious galleries displaying various paintings of different genres, such as lacquer paintings, Quat Dong embroidered paintings and Hang Trong paintings which have become traditional and cultural products of the Street. Apart from paintings, souvenir items such as brocade bags, wooden and stone statues, bamboo and rattan-woven products are also available.
The Street now still preserves some historical relics, including Dong Huong Communal House, also known as Hang Trong Pagoda where a geisha is worshipped, and Nam Huong Pagoda which is dedicated to the spirits of Bach Ma and Linh Lang. With its cultural and historical values, Hang Trong is a must-visit destination for any visitor to the old quarter of Hanoi.

The North Vietnam region
North Vietnam was a communist state that ruled the northern half of Vietnam from 1954 until 1976. It was officially the Democratic Republic of Vietnam and was proclaimed by Ho Chi Minh in Hanoi in 1945. Vietnam was partitioned following the Geneva Conference at the end of the First Indochina War.
During World War II, Vietnam was a French colony under Japanese occupation. Soon after Japan surrendered in 1945, the DRV was proclaimed in Hanoi, government for the entire country. Viet Minh leader H o Chi Minh became head of the government while former emperor Boi became "supreme advisor." Non-communist figures were ousted from the DRV on October 30 and fled to the South[citation needed. In November, the French reoccupied Hanoi and the French Indochina War followed. Boi became head of the Saigon government in 1949, which was then renamed the State of Vietnam. Following the Geneva Accords of 1954, Vietnam was partitioned at the 17th parallel. The DRV became the government of North Vietnam while the State of Vietnam retained control in the South. [...]
Hanoi (Vietnamese: Hà N?i), the capital of Vietnam, and also its second largest city, is a fascinating blend of East and West, combining traditional Sino-Vietnamese motifs with French flair. It is largely unscathed from the decades of war, and is now going through a building boom, making it a rapidly developing city in Southeast Asia. [......]
