Pu Luong Reserve is our favorite destination to discover beyond Mu Cang Chai and Tu Le valleys in Yen Bai province. You can travel and explore in a quiet place where you indulge your senses into beautiful natural decor such as rice fields on terrace, small houses of local people, background of natural vegetables and mountains.
Pu Luong Reserve becomes a spotlight recently. Come to explore and relax before a crowded fellow of tourists arrive soon in the near future.
Mr and Mrs Kelton have just come back, and have come into the office and told us what a wonderful time they had. They were very impressed with all the arrangements that were made, and were particularly pleased with the standard of care they received, especially when Denise was ill.
They asked me to make special mention of their guide “Thomas” who looked after them in Hanoi, Halong Bay, and Sapa: all the guides were very good, but he in particular was very caring.
Thank you so very much for taking such good care of my clients: I hope to use your services again in the future!
