Pu Luong is called “the microcosm of Northern Vietnam” with the immense terraced rice fields, ethic tribe villages, giant mountain ranges…When traveling to Vietnam, besides kayaking, you will also take part in other activities such as rafting, trekking or cycling.
Compared to Pu Luong, Hoi An is a famous destination in your holiday to Vietnam. It is ancient, peaceful, delightful and charming.
