#1 Jan 29, 2013
Northern Vietnam is a region that is steep in history and tradition. It is also one that is blessed with beautiful landscape. The region covers roughly one-third of Vietnam, centering around the capital, Hanoi.

On the western part of Northern Vietnam are cragging mountain peaks crowned by the Hoang Lien Mountains. The topography can still be described as unspoilt, or have at least returned to the natural state after the years of civil war. Visitors to this area will come across many ethnic minorities hill tribes, among them the Tai, Hmong, Dao and Nung people. Each tribe is noted for their own traditional costume which are often very colorful.

Hanoi Open Tourism would like to offer visitors a special trip to discover northem Vietnam for 7days-6nights.
