Please apply Vietnam visa and come here, you will have good experiences because Ba Be is really the most visited destination. Ba Be can only be reached by road – the 250km journey takes between six and eight hours. The road gets rough along the latter part, but the excellent scenery compensates.

The lake itself is really three lakes linked by wide channels. Its surface is nearly always calm is suitable to make a boat trip a peaceful experience. In adddition, there are islands and caves to visit.

Within the park’s boundary tourists can visit several small villages inhabited by members of the Tay, Red Dao, Coin Dao and White H’mong ethnic minorities. Some of the villages offer basic, but reasonably comfortable, homestays. An alternative is the park’s guesthouse, which provides basic accommodation only. Elsewhere, there is limited local standard accommodation in Cho Ra town, about 18km away outside the park.

An interesting stop en-route is Thai Nguyen, a centre of heavy industry based on steel manufacturing, and the unlikely home of the Museum of Nationalities of Vietnam. It provides an informative overview of the country’s many ethnic minorities, particularly useful for visitors that haven’t already visited Hanoi’s excellent Ethnology Museum

Further north is Cao Bang province, a remote area on the border with China. Cao Bang is sparsely populated. It has very few large settlements but several ethnic groups in villages hardly affected by tourism.

The limestone ‘karst’ scenery is attractive, unspoilt and fich in bio-diversity. Few visitors venture further north than Ba Be, so Cao Bang vies with the remote northwest as one of the best places to see truly authentic ethnic minority lifestyles.

From Cao Bang, it’s possible to loop round to the south via the border town of Lang Son to Quang Ninh Province and Ha Long Bay.
