Vietnam is developing tourism rapidly, attracting tourists from all over the world with its beautiful white sand beaches and unique culture. Vietnam’s northwest region, hitherto an underrepresented destination in most travel guidebook, is now the highlighted choice for adventure and sustainable tourism. Pristine atmosphere, original landscape and colorful ethnic culture are the main advantages of these mountain provinces.
Realizing that there is a lack of local guide about Vietnam northwest, Vietnam Online has vested much effort on researching and collecting information about Lao Cai, Hoa Binh, Dien Bien Phu and Ha Giang – those with great tourism potential. The fresh travel guide focuses on updating latest information about tourist attractions and leisure activities in these 5 provinces, with special features about people and culture.
Specifically, for Lao Cai, Vietnam Online puts an emphasis on Sapa – the famous hill town that was discovered by the French over a century ago. In the Sapa section, Vietnam Online depicts the most popular sightseeing spots, lists restaurants, shopping venues and accommodation facilities. The Sapa guide also includes train timetable on Hanoi-Sapa route for guests’ reference.
Ha Giang, on the other hand, is known for untouched nature beauty and tranquil local lives. In Ha Giang travel guide section, Vietnam Online introduces both must-visit places and important festivals that tourists should keep in mind.
Hoa Binh is the closest province to Hanoi of all Northwest provinces. Hoa Binh also possesses a great number of traditional festivals, enticing food and entertainment activities. A trek and home stay in Mai Chau, for example, is definitely something to consider if one wants to travel off the beaten path.
Dien Bien Phu (or Dien Bien) is an important witness of history, especially in the last 100 years. Those with an interest in colonial history of Vietnam may find the site an extremely enriching learning experience. Culture lovers will also find their heaven here, experiencing the many festivals of the ethnic minorities. Vietnam Online also publishes details about Dien Bien Phu airport, in case you decide to fly there.
