Lac village has 5 Thai ethnics: Ha, Vi, Lo, Mac, and Loc. Previously, the professions of the local people were growing rice and weaving brocade. Later, tourists found the hidden beauty of Lac village.
In 1993, the local government in Hoa Binh province allowed tourists to stay overnight in the village. Therefore, the name of Lac village has been well-known as a “bright spot” on the tourist map of Vietnam. If it is your first time to visit this land, you will surely be overwhelmed right when driving through the winding, flanked passes with towering rocky mountains and deep slopes on both sides.
Visiting Lac village, all kinds of tiredness will disappear. The range of mountain blends with cloud and the green colour of rice fields along with stilt houses, creating a spectacular scene of Lac village. It will be a shortcoming if you don’t go to Lac village market. There are many small, simple stalls here for tourists to buy and learn. Locals are considered as the funny and enthusiastic tour guides who’ll show you the strange items.
In addition, food is an indispensable highlight on a trip. Coming to Lac village, visitors will have a chance to have a meal with the local people. The food here is mainly mountain and forest products grown or hunted by them such as bamboo-tube rice, sticky rice, pig, sour bamboo shoots, vegetables, hill chicken, steamed fish, and bitter bamboo shoots, etc.
