Situated 1,400m above sea level, Si Thau Chai village boasts cool weather all year round.

The village with its natural beauty has now become a spotlight in developing community-based tourism in the mountainous province and an ideal tourist destination in northern Vietnam.

“This tourist site is simple but very clean and pretty,” said Nong Thi Sam, a visitor from Lai Chau city. “Next time I will invite more friends to come.”

Coming to the community-based tourism village, tourists have a chance to experience the daily life of locals. The model has also helped local households improve their living standards.

“Under the instruction of local authorities, we learnt the model from other villages. We keep our village clean to attract tourists. The model has helped improve our living conditions,”  Tan A Diu, a Dao ethnic in the village said.

Tourists can also enjoy the picturesque Tac Tinh waterfall when visiting Si Thau Chai village. The waterfall’s pristine beauty was considered a stunning picture of the northwestern region.

The waterfall is part of a sad love story of a Dao ethnic couple who love each other. Locals named the waterfall Tac Tinh in hope the two people could come together in the next life.

With its natural beauty, Si Thau Chai village is a promising destination for anyone.
