For a long time, the Northwest villages have brought a strange charm that can conquer any visitor’s heart. One of them is Lao Chai – Ta Van (Sapa). Many travelers wonder what it is about Lao Chai that attracts and captivates people so much. Today, let’s go with Lily’s Travel to find the answers!

Previously, when referring to Sapa, we often think of “hot” places such as Fansipan Peak, Ham Rong Mountain, and Cat Cat Village,… but did you know this place also owns a “muse” named Lao Chai- – Ta Van village that is hiding deep in the mountains and forests. A “muse” that only needs you to stop by once will be missed forever.

Lao Chai and Ta Van villages are located approximately 7 kilometers from the center of Sapa town (some sources say 11 kilometers depending on the road). Many ethnic groups live here, including the Mong, Red Dao, and Giay…

In contrast to Sapa town, which is somewhat bustling, Lao Chai and Ta Van villages bring the peaceful and pristine beauty of the high mountains. To help you discover what is in Lao Chai Ta Van that “steals the hearts” of the people so well, Lily’s Travel has compiled the following valuable experiences for going to Ta Van.

If you need to learn why Lao Chai Ta Van is so attractive to you, Lily’s Travel will immediately answer that it is a terraced field. The first experience you cannot miss at this place is admiring the rice terraces in the season of pouring water and ripe rice.

Ethnic minorities sow the first rice germs during the water season, which lasts from April to June. There will be patchy water streaks sparkling with silver light mixed with green patches of rice growing everywhere. The whole space is embalmed with a fragrant scent.

When the rice season is ripe from September to October, the whole earth and sky space seems to sink into the golden color of autumn when the entire rice field is dyed with a shiny honey color. With reaping activities, the entire village became more energetic and bustling than ever. You will be surprised and wish you could pack this earth and sky flavor with just one visit to Lao Chai Ta Van village during the ripe rice season.

You should spend at least 1 night in the authentic new version to know what the Lao Chai village has that fascinates many people. Although there are some modern items, the people here still keep ethnic ornaments in the house, such as wooden bells with buffalo necks or ancient trumpets…

Besides, the people here still keep their lifestyle, grow crops, and raise livestock like previous generations. They still raise pigs and weave brocades and diapers to the field early in the morning. All have remained the same from the past until now, as if time has forgotten this tolerant Ta Van Lao Chai.

Try sleeping in a rustic cottage, chatting with ethnic people by the pink fire in the middle of the high mountain cold, welcoming the dawn, and inhaling fresh air in the chest in the early morning. All of these will be lifelong memories for you.
