Tour Description:

About 17 km away to the east of downhill Lao Cai lies Ta Phin Village - a village of the ethnic minority groups of Black Hmong and Red Dao. The village offers a magnificent natural landscape that features beautiful bright green fields that are separated into squares. There are also traditionally built houses with women wearing their traditional brocade dresses walking about. Take a stroll through this quaint and beautiful village and enjoy the scenery that surrounds you. However, do take note of certain cultural cues, for example, you shouldn’t wear white coloured shirts when coming to the village as white apparel are only used for funerals. Whistling is considered taboo as well, as the villagers think of it as a sign of ‘inviting disaster or ghosts’ to the village.

Ta Phin is well-known for its sophisticated woven fabrics called brocades. The locals use these unique fabrics to make a variety of brocade goods, such as backpacks, wallets, clothes and many more. Every single product is meticulously handmade by the Hmong and Red Dao women. Carrying the ethnic characteristics of the village, the villages consider these products as objects to celebrate love or anniversaries. You’ll even have a chance to see the diligent Hmong and Red Dao people working on their brocade in their homes.

Another unique cultural trait of the village is its herbal baths. The Herbal bath tradition started when villagers collected leaves and herbs from the forest to bathe on New Year's Eve. As time passes by, realizing the benefits of the herbal bath, the villagers developed it and it becomes a famous feature of Ta Phin. After 15 to 20 minutes of soaking yourself in the aromatic wild herbs, you will feel much more energized and refreshed. Try the medicated herbal bath to “restore” yourself and relax after all the hard work in your daily life!
