This place still retains centuries-old buildings with unique architecture, impressive historical and mysterious crypts. It contains interesting information about the life and culture of the ancient Vietnamese.

A vast panorama of the city, probably spent all day to explore the place. And it was these interesting things that inspired me to come here as soon as possible in the unfavorable weather. And that does not disappoint me.

Mu Cang Chai - The Spotlight of Northwest Vietnam

“Where to get a perfect encounter with local and experience the most rural feelings in Vietnam?” – Whenever this question comes to me, the northern mountains are automatically come to my mind. The Northern Mountains divide into 2 sub-regions, namely Northwest and Northeast. Northwest consists of 6 provinces: Dien Bien, Son La, Lai Chau, HoaBinh, Lao Cai, Yen Bai. Sapa is a prominent name, when people think of rice terraces and minority groups in Vietnam. That is the reason why Sapa now is too touristic and cannot keep the innocence of rural areas. In this article, I would like to introduce Mu Cang Chai – the land of rice terraces as a place where you still find the purity and honesty of local minorities and of landscape itself.
