Mr Vu (Tan’s Father) was born and grew up in this village of Doan Xa. Born in 1948 he left school early to heed the call of the country ‘to join the fight against foreign aggression’. As such in 1966, at the age 16 he enlisted in the army. He was a part of the most renowned division of Northern Liberation Force 308; a group of smart and well trained soldiers who successfully fought and survived 3 of the biggest operations (1967, 1968 and 1972) in the American War.
When the war was over, he returned to Doan Xa village, sick of the terrible things that had occurred during the war to become a farmer. However, Vietnam in the 1970s and 1980s saw the mass collectivisation of farms and factories and this along with a subsidised economy made it very difficult to produce enough food for his wife and family.
Throughout this difficult economic period Mr Vu remained happy and optimistic and lived by the motto “do good things and good things will come to you’. Many years on he is extremely proud of his three sons, each have been able to obtain a university education, and he is enjoying a peaceful and happy life in his rural village. To add to this Mr Vu loves nothing more than sitting to the early hours of the morning, sipping traditional rice wine and sharing stories with his guests.
All in all, our aim at Paddy Home is to provide each and every customer with the most unforgettable Eco experience while at the same time providing a clean, comfortable and homely retreat for guests to enjoy whilst being embraced as part of the family during their stay.
