Lao Cai Sustainable Tourism

Lao Cai Province is located in the north-west of Vietnam, 380km from Hanoi. The province with mountainous terrain is home to the highest peaks in Vietnam. Besides, Lao Cai is home to many ethnic groups, some of whom live separated from the mainstream society and most of whom maintain their traditional culture unchanged for centuries.

Lao Cai has been popular for the adventure travelers to Vietnam and the provincial government has been proactive in developing community-based tourism engaging the local ethnic communities into providing travel services to the tourists while being more aware of protecting their traditional culture. Below are the communities that provide sustainable travel service to the visitors.
