This exotic tour in the north-east begins when you leave your hotel in Hanoi and drive through the undulating terrain of tea plantations to Thai Nguyen city. Stop off to visit the Museum of Ethnology. Lunch at the local restaurant. Then continue your journey through many other timeless villages dotted along the road which is the main artery of trade between the north-east region and the capital city. This will be your first glimpse of rural Vietnam and sets the tone for the days ahead. Arrive at Ba Be lakes at midday. After checking into your 'home stay' in Pac Ngoi village of the Tay people, you will have free time to explore. Dinner and stay overnight at your hotel of choice in Ba Be.
