Time to walk! We will stroll around Trung Do village, accommodation of Tay ethnic minority people for years. Our first impression in here is a crooked and sinuous uprise, cloud covering around all time. If you come here on July, you can enjoy festive atmosphere with locals, in their 2 main festivals to memorate merits’ heroes in this land history.

Lately, we check in Bac Ha homestay to have wonderful moments with locals here. That’s cozy atmosphere of family even when you are travelling. Locals are open-minded and hospitable, and they will invite you a hearty dinner with frugal dishes that they grow. This intimate atmosphere is not only in a homestay, but spread out the whole village.
Day 2 - Morning

Bac Ha (B)

Normally if you are at home, alarm clock will wake you up. In Bac Ha, domestic animals like roosters or pigs will play the role of alarm clock to make you ready for a new day.

After breakfast, we will visit around the colorful Sunday market, and you will realize why the market has “colorful” in its name. Taking a look at local trading, seeing various products selling is a fun experience, to understand more about local daily lives, their customs and traditions, expressing right in costume they wear every day.

Sounds, colors, people and flavors of this simple market give us a subtle sense of emotion, from surprise, fun to deep thoughts of experiences about idyllic lands with rustic, honest and nice people here.
Day 2 - Noon and after

Sapa (L/D)

We have a Vietnamese lunch at a local restaurant. Then relax and get on the bus to arrive to Sapa. After we check into a hotel, we have free time for yourself, relax or visit some main attractions such as Stone Church of Sapa (Holy Rosary Church) or Ham Rong mountain….
Day 3 - Morning

Muong Hoa Valley (B)

Muong Hoa is an engaging destination which attracts adventurous steps into highlander. This magnificent valley is accommodation of many ethnic minorities, a place of amazing natural landscapes captivating new guests.

Coming to Muong Hoa Valley, we will stroll around to explore life and culture of native people in 2 villages: Ta Van and Lao Chai, contemplate small meandering rivers winding through marvellous rice terraces.

It’s also a chance for us to visit other distant villages of ethnic minorities’ people (Black H’mong, Dao and Giay). Locals will show you their brilliant rice terraces and the way they cultivate in this area as an experienced farmer.
Day 3 - Noon and after

Mu Cang Chai (L/D)

Then, we drive back to town for lunch. In the afternoon, we will see another stunning rice terrace paradise in Mu Cang Chai.

Mu Cang Chai is a favorable destination for anyone who love nature and enjoy highland atmosphere, fresh air and serene ambience Especially on September - October, thousands of people come here to contemplate one of the most beautiful rice terraces in Vietnam.

If you met Black H’mong, Dao, Giay people before, you would have a chance to stay in stilt-house homestay with Thai people, with another traditional characteristic. They will share with you, still folk stories with deities, but different ideologies, customs and beliefs. They have their own language, culture, which make them really proud of.
Day 4

Mu Cang Chai (B/L/D)

This day is totally for a scenic trek on small paths and back roads from Che Cu Nha to La Pan Tan.

Che Cu Nha and La Pan Tan villages, along with Ze Xu Phinh make up a major part of Mu Cang Chai Rice Terrace Fields with 500 hectares. It stretches across the mountainside, reach up layer by layer. When we look up, we have the feeling that this imposing mountain would never let us go to the other side.

Later, we drive to Tu Le town to have a night there.
Day 5

Mu Cang Chai (B/L)

In the morning, we will stroll around Tu Le town, contemplate peaceful scenery of developing countryside. Tu Le appears to be a new wind, fragrancy attracting us to drop by, enjoy homely sticky rice which is a specialty of Thai people here.

If you are lucky to be here in September paddy season, you will be immersed into rice scent with a fresh stream crossing by. Overall, that’s typical Northwestern Vietnam landscape, with the resonance of water and rice terraces, a poetic, simple beauty but make us remember for a long time.
