North West - Northern Region Vacations

The Northwest leaves an unforgettable impression by the impressive scene of mountains, terraced fields, and the endless pass along the mountains.

Travelling to the more remote parts of the region takes time and effort, but those short on either can stick around towns, the surrounding hills of which are a microcosm of the region as a whole.

Northwest Vietnam's people and culture are additional draws, and those mountains are home to a variety of ethnic groups, not to mention the scenic villages where they live and the colourful markets where they shop.
