Northern Vietnam group tours: Moc Chau – your spring getaway
When people mention Moc Chau, it is likely that they are talking about Moc Chau Plateau.
It is a famous destination of Moc Chau District, Son La Province, and is about 180km from Hanoi. This poetic land is known for its evergreen tea hills and wildest grass fields in Vietnam Northern mountainous areas.
It is best suited for those who seek for some peace in nature but prefer a less bumpy road trip. It is also an amazingly romantic getaway and is suitable for short stays. So if you are travelling to Vietnam this spring, why not choose Moc Chau?
Spring in Mochau:
Spring is the season of vitality. In this season, cherry and plum blossoms start to bloom and dye Moc Chau’s flower carpet in a bright white and pinkish colour. The misty weather only adds up to the beauty of this plateau, giving it an elegant and dreamy look.
Peach blossoms begin to bloom in January. You can also see plum trees flowering in locals’ gardens during this time of the year. There might be some last yellow broccoli flowers on the roadsides if you pay enough attention.

Its picturesque scene is enough to keep travellers coming and when leaving, people yearn for another chance to visit Moc Chau with a sense of tranquillity in mind.
It is also the chance to celebrate Tet holiday with Hmong people. Prepare traditional dishes and dine with the locals before dancing and singing the night away to celebrate a new year to come.
