Moc Chau is only 200 km northwest of Hanoi. The road has been restored, so it’s easy to visit Moc Chau now. Popular with all who want to escape from the wetness and sounds of Hanoi capital, Moc Chau is an attractive destination for the weekend. But it is difficult to find a free room during high season, said Phung Thi Luu Ly, Head of the Moc Chau Cultural Section: “The climate in Moc Chau is different. There are four seasons in a day: spring, summer, autumn, and winter. The temperatures vary between 18 and 22 degrees, a really great time to do small walks. Just put a jacket and scarf, immediately you become chic for photographs. In recent years, Moc Chau has become a popular tourist destination”.
Moc Chau is famous for its variety of flowers throughout the year. Green fields, fruit trees of all varieties, and flower meadows create an authentic charm for Moc Chau attracting travelers from around the country. In spring, the region owes its charm to the peach blossoms, plum, and apricot. And then summer comes together with the harvesting of fruits. Strolling hamlets of the Mong, you’ll come across plum trees whose branches bend under the weight of fruit. Then autumn comes with large parties: the Independence Day – September 2, and the month-long traditional festival of ethnicities held during the lunar November. You will experience a festive and authentic atmosphere right now”.
Visiting Moc Chau, you will also discover Dai Yem waterfall, located in the middle of forest. Further, you will stroll in the pine forest and around the lake, a great place to go camping. You will visit the Moc Huong Son cave, known as the “bat cave” where stalactites and stalagmites defy the ravages of time.
Your trip would not be complete if you do not taste the local cuisine. A veal dish in a pan, a bowl of soup taro, bio-grown vegetable platter will delight your taste.
Being close to nature, take a breath of fresh air, admire the huge flower meadows, enjoy local specialties and meet warm and welcoming locals –these are what you can do in Moc Chau.
