Pù Luông: A Destination for Nature Lovers!

If you are a nature lover and you wish to immerse yourself in the green of the forest, the blue of the sky, the white of clouds, all while escaping the hustle and bustle of city life, then Pù Luông is the perfect destination for you to unwind for a few days.

Pù Luông, which translates to "the highest area of the village" in the language of the Thai ethnic community, is situated in Thanh Hóa, approximately 160 km further south of Hanoi, and it's in close proximity to Cúc Phương National Park. Therefore, after days of exploring the life and culture of Hanoi, it's ideal for your family to spend a couple of days in Pù Luông to immerse yourselves in the distinctly different atmosphere it offers.
