Can you tell us about yourself?

I was born and grew up in Hanoi. I have worked for Khiri Travel Vietnam for four years. Fortunately, I got a job in tourism. It gives me a chance to visit many sites in Vietnam.

Which places in Vietnam do you like best?

The most attractive places are Bac Ha market and Can Cau market towards the end of the year. To visit the market in the winter season is when people come to have the most wonderful experience. It’s a place of happiness and color. It is where girls in their newest skirts come to meet their friends, where boys blow the best melody on their pan-pipes to impress the girls, where kids go with their mothers to buy new clothes, where old lovers meet each other to drink a bowl of corn wine, where new lovers date each other, and where mothers buy all the necessary things for the most important festival in the year – New Year.

What are the latest developments in Vietnam?

A new destination I would like to introduce to you is the northern border area: Ha Giang province. It is a treasure full of natural and cultural heritage. Come to see, for example, the Dong Van stone plateau. Ha Giang is the place where every Vietnamese wishes to come once in their life. There are good reasons to visit Ha Giang: to see the Lung Cu flag tower – our fatherland’s border point; to take part in the Khau Vai love market – open only one night per year; and to visit Ban Gioc waterfall (located in Cao Bang province) – the most beautiful and imposing in Vietnam where visitors can hear the sound of water from a long distance. Another reason is to visit Vuong House when going to the Dong Van stone plateau. The plateau is to become officially recognized as the first international geologic park of Vietnam.

What is a must-see in this area?

Tourists visiting the national geo-park can experience the wonderful Ma Pi Leng Way, which is often hailed as the “the most imposing landscape” in Vietnam. The Dong Van stone plateau has thousands of big and small mountains with very long defiles, mountains and rivers together. In the mornings, when full of dew, the sunshine through the clouds falling into the river reflects the shimmering mountains. From Ma Pi Leng to the Nho Que River is like traveling on a thin thread crossing the valley.

To be Vietnamese, I am proud of our charming country. I hope travelers will have the same feeling as me when they are here.
