Da Bac is the perfect location for getting off the tourist trail in Vietnam and experiencing authentic village culture. The homestay owners and local guides are building their capacity to welcome international guests independently. At this early stage, we recommend joining one of our partners on a tour of Da Bac.
The quiet roads and trails that link the villages in Da Bac provide the perfect opportunity for visitors to explore the area by bicycle. Bicycle rental is available in Da Bia Village. Bike hire is available at 50,000 VND per day.
Kayaking is available in Da Bia and Ke Village. A morning or afternoon on the Da River or Hoa Binh Reservoir is the perfect way to relax and admire the scenery. Kayak hire is only 120,000 VND a day.
A variety of trekking routes are also available. If you are particularly interested in this activity, we highly recommend joining our tour partners or contacting us for more information. Trekking routes offer stunning views of rice terraces, mountain scenery, beautiful streams and dramatic caves.
After a busy day exploring Da Bac, you’ll definitely want to relax. A traditional herbal bath is the perfect activity for the afternoon or evening. Filled with fragrant herbs that help to improve your skin and joints, you’ll sleep well and feel refreshed. The bath takes a few hours to prepare, so please give your hosts advance notice if you’d like to take a bath.
