Magnolia Responsible Travel is thrilled to announce its partnership with Pu Luong Natura, a locally managed hospitality structure nestled within the stunning Pu Luong Nature Reserve. This collaboration marks a significant step towards promoting responsible tourism in this pristine region of Vietnam.
Pu Luong Natura, with its 28 deluxe rooms, including 18 valley-view rooms, spread harmoniously around two infinite natural pools, is undoubtedly one of the finest accommodations for leisure seekers in Pu Luong Nature Reserve. This partnership with Magnolia Responsible Travel signifies a commitment to elevating the travel experience for nature enthusiasts while prioritizing sustainability and community engagement.
Magnolia Responsible Travel, with its extensive experience in community tourism, is set to introduce a new line of tourist products to Pu Luong Natura. These offerings will provide travelers with unique insights into the local culture and traditions. For instance, visitors can look forward to visiting the 50-year-old stilt house of Mr. Nhan in Don village, immersing themselves in the art of "thread-picking" and learning the story-telling techniques used in Thai women's belts in Lan village. These experiences not only offer a glimpse into the rich heritage of the region but also create opportunities for meaningful cultural exchanges.
One of the core principles of responsible travel is empowering local communities. In line with this, Magnolia Responsible Travel is actively involved in assessing and training local people to become tour guides both in Vietnamese and English. This initiative not only enhances the employability of the locals but also ensures that tourists receive authentic and insightful guidance during their visits to Pu Luong Nature Reserve.
Situated in Thanh Hoa province, to the southwest of Hanoi, Pu Luong Nature Reserve is rapidly emerging as a captivating destination for travelers seeking an alternative to Sapa. Its allure lies in the breathtaking beauty of the rice terraces and the rich cultural heritage of the indigenous Thai people, who are known for their signature stilt houses. Pu Luong offers a unique blend of natural splendor and cultural immersion that is sure to leave a lasting impression on every visitor.
To travel to Pu Luong, you can take a comfortable "limousine bus" from Hanoi, with a journey time of approximately 4.5 hours. For a more comprehensive experience, consider embarking on a private tour that includes stops at Mai Chau Valley, Ninh Binh. This flexible approach allows you to tailor your journey to your preferences, ensuring that you make the most of your time in this enchanting region.
