You will arrive in Tuyen Quang around noon and enjoy lunch in a local restaurant. After your meal, we drive to Hoang Su Phi.
Hoang Su Phi is still not frequently visited by foreign travelers in Vietnam. The area was quite hidden from the outside world due to bad roads. Nowadays, the roads are fairly good and the stunning rice terraces here have been started to become a favorite region among the adventurous travellers. Visiting Hoang Su Phi means seeing jaw-dropping mountains, valleys, and a profusion of ethnic minorities. Of the over 3,000 hectares of rice terraces in Hoang Su Phi, 760 hectares have been listed as Vietnam's National Heritage.
