Ba Be Lake – Ban Gioc Waterfall Tour – 4 Days/3 Nights

Itinerary
This north western Vietnam tour is a captivating mix of great limestone mountains, crisp fresh air, a larger than life waterfall, sprawling rice fields and a fresh water lake.This 4 days nature tour takes you from Hanoi to the natural wonderland of Northwestern Vietnam where we visit Ba Be National Park, Ban Gioc Waterfall and the famous Ba Be Lake. which is well-known as a 50-hectare freshwater lake in the altitude of 145m above sea level created by the confluence of three river tributaries orchestrated by an earthquake tens of millions of years ago, Ban Gioc – the world’s fourth biggest border-crossing waterfall is attractive for its picturesque painting of blue sky, great limestone mountains and stunning rice fields. Each and every guest so far has gone back awe struck and spell bound. What are you waiting for?

Day 1: Hanoi – Ba Be Lake (L/D)
At 7:00 AM: Our Green Discovery Indochina tour guide and driver will pick you up at the lobby of your hotel in Hanoi then take a drive on a 250-kilometers (5 hours)  journey to Ba Be National Park. On the way we will have several scheduled stops for lunch and visiting Tay ethnic minority community and mostly living by rice cultivation.
Arrive Ba Be Lake, we will check-in home-stay at Pac Ngoi Village, take a rest an hour then we will start a boat trip along Nang River to discover Ba Be Lake, Puong Grotto, the rapids of the Dau Dang Waterfall and tiny Widow Island. These poetic landscapes will bring us relaxing time with fresh air and green environment, so don’t forget your camera for nice photos.
In the afternoon, we will arrive to the stilt houses of the Tay community in Pac Ngoi Village and also spend your night in a home-stay in the village.

Day 2: Ba Be National Park – Hua Ma cave exploring – Quang Uyen (B/L/D)
After breakfast at the host family, we will take a short walk visit Hua Ma cave, a huge grotto with thousands of stalactites. We will then depart for Quang Uyen, frontier town which is inhabited mostly by the Nung ethnic minority people. They still retain their centuries old cultural traditions and are recognizably distinct from each other by their dress.  The remoteness and the simple lifestyle of the area’s local people are highlights of Quang Uyen. Living conditions are very basic here. Overnight in a small but comfortable hotel.

Day 3 – Quang Uyen – Ban Gioc Waterfall – Cao Bang city (B/L/D)
After breakfast, we will depart for Ban Gioc waterfall, which is closed to Vietnam’s northern border with China.
On the way to Ban Gioc Waterfall, you will see many terraced rice paddies dotted with some houses creating a peaceful and poetic landscape. Arrive at Ban Gioc, you will marvel at its spectacular beauty, which is worth to be the Vietnam’s most beautiful waterfall. After spending some time relaxing and taking nice photos, you will visit Nguom Ngao Cave, listen to its interesting legends then come back Cao Bang Town for overnight in a local hotel.

Day 4: Cao Bang Town – Hanoi (B/L)
On the next day, on the way transferring back to Hanoi (about 310 kilometers), you will enjoy the charming sceneries deeply reflecting the Northwest color: stunning limestone peaks, long-lasting lush paddy fields and untouched peaceful villages. To satisfy your desire of discovering, we will stop at an ethnic village known for its tobacco production, where you can not only learn more about the daily life of the locals but also enjoy the peace and tranquility. There is a stop for lunch before getting back to Hanoi city and ending the trip.

The Best of Vietnam Now

A decade after tourists began returning, Vietnam's cultural revolution is in full swing. From Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City, a new generation is taking over. Peter Jon Lindberg reports.

So, have you been yet?

You have no idea what you're missing. After years of false starts, Vietnam is finally having its moment, thanks to a new generation of entrepreneurs, restaurateurs, designers, club owners, and artists—many born after the war. This is no longer the hermetic nation of a generation ago: two-thirds of the population is under 30 and eager to engage the world at large. The country is still nominally Communist, and its leaders remain socially conservative. But young Vietnamese are enthusiastically absorbing and remixing global culture. I first fell for Vietnam in the mid-nineties, and have returned every year or two since—yet until my most recent visit, I'd never seen the country so visibly charged.

Foreign arrivals in 2002 shattered all previous records, while bookings on Vietnam Airlines rose by 80 percent—even as terrorism concerns cut into travel elsewhere. Indeed, post-9/11 anxiety played a part in the country's surging popularity. "Vietnam, poor but orderly, is now tourists' safe haven," declared the New York Times in January. Almost 30 years after the war, Vietnam was being touted as the safest place in Asia, owing to its stable population, effective security, and negligible crime rate. Luxury hotels were booked solid, and developers were seizing the day: Sheraton opened its first property in Ho Chi Minh City this spring, while the much delayed Park Hyatt resumed construction up the street. Restaurants and boutiques sprang up in newly trendy neighborhoods. A gleaming airport terminal opened in Hanoi, with passenger Jetways (no more trudging across the 98-degree tarmac) and actual air-conditioning. After a fitful decade, Vietnam was at last enjoying a legitimate boom.
And then SARS hit. When Vietnam reported cases in February, tourism screeched to a halt. But the virus was contained within two months, and Vietnam became the first affected country to be declared SARS-free. Tourism has been picking up where it left off.
Why such intense interest?Because Vietnam teeters giddily between fast (Saigon nightclubs) and slow (bicycle rickshaws); traditional (silk ao dai tunics) and cutting-edge (fur and vinyl ao dai tunics); exotic (barbecued goat nipples?) and familiar ("You from L.A.?My cousin's from L.A.!"). Add to the mix one of the world's great cuisines, stylish boutiques, inviting resorts, and a buzzing nightlife. Moreover, Vietnam is surprisingly accessible now: English is spoken everywhere, prices are low, and there's more to see and do than you can possibly imagine.

So, when are you going?
The Lay of the Land
• HANOI AND HO CHI MINH CITY Rarely are a nation's two poles so opposite. With its mist-shrouded lakes, faded colonial façades, and cooler climate, Hanoi is the moody, reflective older brother, harboring a rich intellectual and artistic life. Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) is the brash younger sibling: faster, newer, hotter in every sense—Miami to Hanoi's Boston. In the nineties Hanoi was said to be 10 years "behind" cosmopolitan H.C.M.C., with fewer high-rises and discos. But the capital's culinary scene now rivals H.C.M.C.'s, and many restaurateurs and designers have outposts in both cities. Still, the two remain perfect antipodes—and antidotes—to each other.

• THE BEACHES Development has been limited to a few key areas, though the current tourism boom has quickened the pace: acres of oceanfront outside Da Nang (whose China Beach is the setting for the splendid Furama Resort) are earmarked for future hotel sites. Just 20 miles away is tranquil Hoi An, the prettiest village in Vietnam despite its increasing commercialization. There's now a nascent resort scene on the coast. Farther south, Nha Trang draws backpackers to its seaside bars and cheap guesthouses, and weekending expats to the Ana Mandara resort. Travelers seeking a less manic scene prefer Phan Thiet, an emerging resort hub close to tranquil Mui Ne Beach. Also on the radar is remote Phu Quoc Island, near Cambodia, which will surely become a full-fledged beach mecca, but for now is just a slow-paced retreat.

• HUÉ AND CENTRAL VIETNAM The old imperial capital, Hué, is sleepier than Hanoi and H.C.M.C. but compensates with a wealth of historic landmarks (the city is a World Heritage Site). Many visitors use it as a base for touring the former Demilitarized Zone, or DMZ. Hué is as famous for its cuisine as for its monuments, though some of the best Hué-style cooking is actually served in Hanoi. Still, architecture aficionados and war historians will find the city compelling.

• THE MEKONG DELTA The delta is popular with tour groups and day-trippers from H.C.M.C. Endless rivers and canals wind past dripping green jungle, fruit plantations, and fishermen's shacks—but it's not as uniformly beautiful as it sounds. The marketplace at Can Tho (the delta's largest city) is a maelstrom; the Victoria Can Tho, nearby, is a pleasant riverfront resort.

• FARTHER AFIELD Those with more time might consider excursions to Dalat, a French-era mountain retreat surrounded by lakes and tea plantations; Sapa, a remote northwestern hill station populated by colorful tribal minorities; and Halong Bay, where re-created Chinese junks carry tourists past the limestone islets that jut out of the blue-green water.

Food
Restaurants serving Vietnamese food fall into two broad categories: fluorescent-lit canteens with plastic chairs and minimal decoration, and dining rooms with tablecloths and incandescent lighting, often set in restored French villas with an Indochine aura. In years past it was hard to find great Vietnamese cuisine at upscale establishments. But lately, a new breed of restaurant—one that brings together tasteful interiors, smooth service, and exceptional cooking—is catering to the country's growing middle class. Wild Rice, which opened last year in Hanoi, breaks the colonial-villa mold with its spare, modern interior, spotlighted rock gardens, and contiporary art. And the yogurt-marinated roast chicken and papaya salad with prawns are as authentic as any local kitchen's. In Ho Chi Minh City, similar culinary prowess can be found at the 10-month-old Nam Phan, housed in a gorgeous beige-and-sand-toned mansion. Tropical gardens and a cool Californian vibe make it popular with well-heeled saigonnais. When I dropped in at 9 p.m. on a Tuesday, I was asked whether I had a reservation. A reservation?Two years ago the word didn't exist here.

Shopping
While Ho Chi Minh City has always had the most forward-looking clothing designers, once-conservative Hanoi now claims a growing number of edgy boutiques. Handbag guru Christina Yu chose the capital as the headquarters for her playfully flamboyant Ipa-Nima label, now shown from Hong Kong to London; her shop sells the famous bags for 50 to 70 percent less than the overseas price. In Hanoi's Cathedral District, 25-year-old Nguyen Hoang Ngan opened Nymph last year in a closet-sized storefront, where her flirty camisoles, taffeta sleeveless tops, and miniskirts recall Catherine Malandrino—at H&M prices ($10 for a silk blouse). Frenchwoman Valerie McKenzie sells her cool, light, botanical-print cotton, silk, and linen dresses and blouses at Song, one of the few shops where you'll find an actual dressing room.

Nightlife
Nightspots here used to be split between defiantly local joints (run by older Vietnamese) and tony expat-and-tourist bars (often managed by Westerners or returning Vietnamese emigrants). Lately that line has blurred: foreigners are seeking out more authentic, unpretentious places while middle- and upper-class locals gravitate to high-end spots that once catered solely to Westerners. Indeed, some of the most fashionable restaurants and bars are now run by lifelong residents. While the older generation complains of encroaching Westernization—witness the Saigon-based musicians "Well-Hung" Hung and "Mean Man" Minh—the best clubs still have a decidedly Vietnamese, foreign-correspondent-club vibe. They may pour Johnnie Walker and blast Coldplay on the stereo, but they couldn't be found west of the Mekong.

Hotels and Resorts
Accommodations in Vietnam have improved dramatically in recent years. Most city properties are in new, often high-rise buildings, which make up in amenities and techno-fittings what they lack in character. Given the surplus of stately Beaux-Arts edifices and rambling old mansions here, it's a mystery why hoteliers aren't buying them up by the block. The few surviving properties from the colonial era (such as Saigon's Continental and Majestic hotels) are threadbare on the inside, despite the gleam of their restored façades. An exception is the grand Sofitel Metropole, a beautiful 1901 landmark in Hanoi's French Quarter; it's the capital's finest hotel, with that rare combination of contiporary luxury and classic atmosphere (swirling rattan fans, tall French windows, trickling fountains). The nearby Hilton Hanoi Opera runs a close second, with views of the magnificent opera house across the street (which the hotel's ocher façade was designed to mimic).

Three Essential Dishes
CHA CA Tasty morsels of turmeric-dusted whitefish are fried tableside in oil and accompanied by fresh dill, scallions, basil, peanuts, cilantro, and chile sauce, along with a tangle of vermicelli. Get it at 104-year-old Cha Ca La Vong, a rickety house in Hanoi's Old Quarter. Just take a seat and a sizzling skillet appears.

PHO Vietnam's national dish is a piquant consommé spiked with ginger, cinnamon stick, fish sauce, and star anise (though recipes vary), rounded out with rice noodles and either beef (the more traditional pho bo) or chicken (pho ga). Mai Anh in Hanoi ladles out mind-blowingly good pho ga from a steaming storefront cauldron.

BO TUNG XEO Strips of tender raw beef are soaked in a sweet, tangy marinade of soy, garlic, and chiles; you barbecue the meat yourself on a tabletop brazier. Luong Son, a tin-roofed roadhouse in H.C.M.C., is famous for its bo tung xeo—not to mention unnerving specialties like deep-fried scorpion, bonded chicken feet, and fried pig's stomach.

New Year atmosphere overwhelms Hoi An ancient town

A wide range of activities will be organised in the central province of Quang Nam’s Hoi An city on the threshold of the New Year 2016 as part of the local authority’s efforts to lure more visitors to the world cultural heritage.

Cau pagoda in Hoi An city
A gala night will take place at the An Hoi statue garden on December 31, featuring a lantern festival and a wedding photo contest.
Winners of a video-producing contest on Hoi An tourism will be awarded at a ceremony on the same day.

Locals and visitors will enjoy songs and dances celebrating the New Year, with hope for a peaceful world.

A progmamme to welcome the first guests of the ancient town in the New Year will be arranged on January 1, 2016.

According to Vice Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Nguyen Van Son, Hoi An was a renowned international trade port in the 17th century where ships from Japan, China, and European countries docked to exchange wares. Cultural exchange also took place in the port, influencing the town in ways that remain visible today.

The events will leave deep impressions on holidaymakers who want to discover Hoi An, he said.

Covering 60 square kilometres, Hoi An has 22.5 square kilometres of agriculture and forest land and 11 square kilometres of lakes and channels.

In 2012, it was shortlisted for the top ten Asian cities in the US-magazine Conde Nast's Traveler's Readers Choice Awards. The following year, the UNESCO-recognised world heritage was chosen for the Townscape Award by the UN-Habitat Regional Office in Asia.
According to the latest report, Hoi An hosted more than 1.7 million tourists, of which 740,000 were foreigners, over the past nine months.
In 2014, a survey showed that 11.2 percent of total international tourists returned to the city on their second visit.

Market sessions in Ha Giang

Markets in Ha Giang always attract tourists because they are not just places for buying and selling, they are also meeting places for local ethnic minority people.

Wearing colorful costumes, all the different ethnic minority groups of the region come to the market to meet their friends, or their ex-lovers.
Early in the morning, Meo Vac district of Ha Giang province is blanketed with fog. All the roads to the markets are noisy with people calling one another as they make their way to the market, which meets only on Sunday. Local people in Meo Vac district are of the Nung, Dao, Mong, and Giay ethnicities. The market is both a trading center and a socializing center for local people.

Many different goods are on sale in the market. People come to the market to sell their farm produce and home-made products and buy clothing, plastic slippers, sandals, sport shoes and mobile phones. Here they also meet their friends and eat their favorite food.

Phan Thi Mui from the Red Dao group said, “I don’t have much money so I can only buy a few items. I brought rice to the market and can sell it for 1 million dong. I also go to the market to meet my friends”.
Visitors to Meo Vac market are impressed by the wine section, where local women stand in a long line selling corn wine. There’s an aluminum soup ladle by each can of wine which customers can use to taste the wine.

Italian tourist Malcro Cusani shared, “We have bought some dishes which can’t be found in Italy. We love to see the costumes of the local ethnic minority people. We have found some souvenirs for our parents”.

People go to Khau Vai market just to meet their ex-lovers. For more than 100 years, Khau Vai market has been known as a Love Market. Legends tell that an ethnic Giay girl from Ha Giang fell in love with a Nung boy from Cao Bang but their love was forbidden by both families.

They separated from each other and made an appointment to meet again on the 27th day of the third lunar month. The mountain where they dated has become a market place. The market meets once a year serving as a festival where people come to meet their ex-lovers.
Tho Mi Tha of Can Chu Phin commune, Meo Vac district said he waited for the Khau Vai Market festival all year to meet his ex-lover.
“I never miss a market festival. My marriage was arranged by my parents. But I have an ex-girlfriend. She is 5 years younger than me. It’s difficult to explain but I always wait for that day and will not return without meeting her.

The festival is held on March 27 but the night of the 26th is a memorable day in my life,” he added.

When they meet, the former lovers recalls their love stories although they might be married and have children now. They don’t return home until midnight.

Tha noted, “I live 10 km from the market. I come here by motorbike at 6 PM. We meet each other in the market. She is married already. We discuss the sad and happy events in our life during the past year. I wish I could have married her”.

The Khau Vai love market is also a place for boys and girls to seek partners. Many couples have been married after meeting at a love market session.

30th Mekong Delta Photographic Festival

The Mekong River Delta is Viet Nam’s largest rice growing area. Its beautiful landscapes, zigzagging canals, floating markets and diverse cultural traditions, the region have inspired a lot of photographers.

The 30th Mekong Delta Photographic Festival was held in Can Tho city recently. The annual event was launched 30 years ago by poet Bao Dinh Giang and photographer Lam Tan Tai to create a venue for photographers to share their photos.

The festival has steadily attracted a growing number of participants. Van Ngoc Nhuan, former President of Soc Trang province’s Arts and Literature Association, has won a number of international photographic awards.

“There is a photo collection of the first festival. At that time, the photos were black and white. The festival was held at Can Tho Cultural House. I’m moved to see all those photos again. After 30 years being held in different Mekong Delta provinces, the festival has proved to be successful,” Nhuan noted.

The festival has become an annual event where photographers of 8 provinces in the Mekong Delta share their experiences and new photographic technology and show off their creativity.

This year, Long An province’s Photographic Association proposed online judging of photo entries to reduce costs and enable the public to admire the beautiful photos. This idea will be applied across Viet Nam.

Vice President of the Viet Nam Photographic Association Le Xuan Thang said,“Over the past 30 years, the number of festival participants has increased a hundreds fold and so has the quality. Photographers in the Mekong Delta have a great passion for photography. Festival entries document the development of photography in the Mekong Delta region”.

The festival attracts new participants every year. Some of them just take photos as a hobby and participate in the festival to show their passion for photography.

With his photo collection “Welcoming father”, Le Phong Vu of Tien Giang province won a gold medal at the festival. His photos depict the beauty and peacefulness of rural Viet Nam. This is the 4th time Le Phong Vu has participated in the festival.

Vu shared, “I love photography but I find it difficult. I have learned a lot from my predecessors. At this festival, I have met a lot of famous photographers from whom I have learned a lot of things”.
The event was organized by the Vietnam Photographic Association and Can Tho Association of Arts and Literature.

Under the themes “Mekong Delta Region- Its land and people” and “Hometown River”, the festival attracted more than 400 photographers with over 3,000 entries in various categories: color photos, black and white photos, and photos of Can Tho.
The organizing board selected 183 outstanding photos to exhibit.

Bach Moc Luong Tu Mountain – A tough challenge for adventurous travellers.

Conquering Bach Moc Luong Tu Mountain is a tough challenge for adventurous travellers since it requires travelers to have high determination and physical toughness. Bach Moc Luong Tu with unspoiled and spectacular beauty, risky roads, and outstanding altitude has become a dream destination of many travellers.
Bach Moc Luong Tu, natural boundary between two provinces Lai Chau and Lao Cai, has the altitude of 3,046 meters. You have to pass 30 kilometers of rugged roads, rocky slopes, bare hills to reach the top of the mountain.
Conquering the mountain is really a hard journey but it’s really worth since standing at the top of the mountain, you will have a magic view of scenery with a sea of clouds and sunshine.
Bach Ma Mountain is at its best at sunrise and sunset when the sun rising from the sea of waving clouds and when the sun peeks out from behind ridges and creating magical lights.
