About your host, Hoàng Ái

My name is Ai, I'm from Thai ethnic group, I'm from a mountainous area in the North Vietnam. I want to show you how amazing our landscapes are and interesting culture from ethnic people here. Northern Vietnam is filled with towering mountains, deep valleys and winding rivers that support the lush jungle region and farmlands that are strewn throughout the region. Many travelers have heard of the beautiful Sapa region in northern Vietnam. The brilliant hiking trails and lush mountainous landscapes are among the most famous in all of southeast Asia. However, if you tilt the globe just 50 or so kilometers to the northeast, you will find a lesser known, much less explored region filled with an entirely different (but perhaps even more beautiful) landscape — the Ha Giang Province.

What we will do

In the morning, everyone will walk to a local market to buy some necessary ingredients including pork and seasonings. Then continue to visit a local village, where you can collect some wood, banana leaves and other special spices. You will then return to the homestay to start making your own delicious smoked pork followed by our cook's instruction.

We'll then enjoy the finished dishes with mouth-watering corn wine while learning about interesting cultural stories from the friendly Thai people.
