Departing Hoi An, our first stop is at a 1000 year old Cham temple as well as former US and French bases from the independence wars.
We then wind our way into the mountains through the tea plantations, home to the C'Tu minority. We take a break to enjoy a visit to the tea plantations before a visit with one of the few remaining C'Tu woodcarvers and his family.
We experience a home cooked lunch in their house before continuing our journey deep in to the mountains. This area is very isolated and the culture and traditions remain essentially untouched by time; making this remote and staggeringly beautiful region home to one of the most authentic hill tribes to remain in Vietnam.
Our next stop is Bho Hoong, a traditional C'Tu village where we will stay for the night. Little has changed in the past hundred years in Bho Hoong and it is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of Central Vietnam.
A light village walk, with a local resident guiding us, allows us to explore the village and unlock its cultural secrets. After our walk, we are free to enjoy a refreshing dip in the river. The evening is highlighted by a superb dinner of C'Tu traditional dishes, a traditional dancing performance and a chance to interact with the villagers, gaining more insight into their rich culture.
Afterwards, retreat to your stilted C'Tu hut where the serene setting and clear mountain air will lull you to sleep.

In the morning, wake up to the sounds of the village coming to life. Enjoy breakfast and a hot cup of coffee as you watch the morning activities of the C'Tu, heading to the fields and preparing the days meals. You will have time to learn how to shoot C'Tu Crossbow.
Have a lunch at Guoi House.
After lunch, leaving Bho Hoong Bungalows to another C'Tu village, we enjoy the brocade weavers, a craft the C'Tu are famous for. Then we embark on the historic Ho Chi Minh Trail, through lush forests and past jaw-dropping views of the central Vietnam Mountains.
The afternoon sees us descending back down toward the coast, stopping along the way to explore historic sites and places of interest, before heading east to Hoi An.
