Covering over 2,000 sq.m, the model comprises three wooden houses and six leaf-tiled cottages designed in traditional style, and over 20 bamboo booths displaying specialties of Co Loa in particular and those of the Northern Delta region in general. 

Visitors will have a chance to enjoy interesting experience, as well as get insights into the countryside’s custom, community culture, and handicraft trade. 

Tourist visiting the area will be provided with free tickets from February 1 - February 21. 

During the first four days of operation, many cultural activities are being arranged, including displays of bonsai trees and handicrafts, traditional art shows, water puppet performances, and food introduction. 

At the end of 2017, the site’s management board introduced the Ca tru (ceremonial singing) art performed by artisans from the Lo Khe Ca tru club of Dong Anh district, in the site as part of efforts to preserve the intangible cultural heritage.
