Rural Houses in Vietnam

There are types of houses most often seen in rural areas: houses on stilts, houses with ground floor, houses that are partly on piles and partly with ground floor. The house is both a dwelling place and a work place (agricultural and handicraft production).

Such houses are built with local material, and are closely associated with the geographical and climatic features of each area. As a result, they are as simple as the life in rural Vietnam and very close to the heart of each inhabitant.
