Renting a car with driver is the best way to get to Hoa Binh. The province is home to six minority groups including the Hmong, Muong, Dao and Thai. The area has changed a lot since the largest hydro power plant in Southeast Asia was built here turning the Da River into a lake. Still, today the province boasts some of Vietnam`s most beautiful scenery and typical Muong’s culture.
08:00am: Picked up by private car and driver at your hotel in Hanoi, after two hour drive, we will reach Hoa Binh city. Welcome by the villagers at Mo Village, Binh Thanh commune. Brief introduce about this typical Muong Village, then walk in the village, visit some families, interacting and talking with the villagers to understand more about their life and customs.
Then take one hour and a half boat trip (only when water level permitted – and with surcharge for boat trip) on the Da Rive Lake for more sightseeing. Back to the village for lunch, and enjoy Muong folk song performance, drink wine in jar through bamboo tube. Your last stop before returning back to Hanoi is the museum of Muong Cultural Space to study more about this land, people and cultural values.
Around mid-afternoon, transfer back to Hanoi. End.
