Thai Nguyen travel experience 2 days 1 night

Thai Nguyen travel experience 2 days 1 night. The green tea hills began to appear when I just crossed the Nhe pass of Vinh Phuc to the land that people call the land of tea hills. Thai Nguyen welcomed me with a gentle rain, but it didn’t make my heart dull, because Thai Nguyen was really too developed, making me feel dizzy. And so my journey to discover Thai Nguyen began.

Where is Thai Nguyen located?     

Thai Nguyen is a midland province in the Northeast region. Thai Nguyen is only 75km from Hanoi, so it can be said that this is an ideal tourist destination for young people who want to leave the city. With foreign tourists, Thai Nguyen is famous for its tea hills in Tan Cuong – This is the number 1 tea specialty in Vietnam, so Thai Nguyen should not be missed in the journey to conquer the North of Vietnam.
