French colonials originally founded this hill station, scattered over the eastern slopes of the Hoang Lien Mountains (the ‘Tonkinese Alps’), as a summer retreat. It was badly damaged by the Japanese in the 1940s, and again during the Vietnam-China War of 1979, but is today enjoying a new lease of life as a holiday destination thanks to its relaxing climate and proximity to some glorious hill country, where minority communities such as the Black H’mong and Red Dao (known locally as the ‘montagnards’) are famed for their traditional costumes.

Over the years, TransIndus has identified a handful of welcoming local homestays and ecolodges where you can experience village life at close quarters. For the more adventurous, a network of trails also leads to far flung upland settlements where life has altered little in centuries.
