Having successfully implemented the Community-based Tourism model in Hoa Binh Province, AOP in Vietnam is replicating this model in other Northern mountainous areas, including Dien Bien Province. About 480 km away from Ha Noi to the North, Muong Phang Commune, Dien Bien District is an ideal destination for culture and history explorers.

Muong Phang Commune is the home to Thai and Khmu ethnic minorities. During the stay at Phuong Duc Homestay, tourists will be provided with local cuisine, accommodation of up to 50 people and the essence of the ethnic cultures. Harvesting, fishing, cycling, walking, sailing and enjoying the tranquility of Muong Phang mountains and rivers are also the must-try activities in this area.

Besides from its rich cultures, Dien Bien District is also the area that witnessed a glorious historic victory of Viet Nam, known as the “Operation Linebacker II” victory. Tourists coming to Dien Bien will have the opportunity of visiting historical monuments and exploring Vietnamese history.
