Moc Chau plateau
"A great place to visit in the north of Vietnam where you can enjoy the fresh air and enjoy the beautiful panoramas, which appear here before your eyes every 10 minutes. Actually you don't have to go with a large group, but individually or with friends it is also very beautiful. If possible try to arrange a motorcycle. That would be wonderful."
