YBO - The uniqueness, attractiveness and cultural characteristics of Tay ethnic group from Ngoc Luc Yen land are clearly shown through Xoi Farmstay model built by Hoang Thi Xoi in Tong Pinh Cai hamlet, Lam Thuong commune.
Visitors experience alluring beauty of Xoi Farmstay.
Endowed with abundant natural resources, Lam Thuong commune preserves many unique cultural identities of Tay ethnic people in Luc Yen. Thanks to the beauty of nature and stilt house – the traditional house of Tay ethnic minority, Xoi has bravely developed community-based tourism in her family house.
Xoi family’s stilt house is designed with rooms to serve 15-20 guests. The most important thing in building the model is retaining traditional features of local Tay people such as brocade weaving, wood stoves and costumes.
Bui Lan Phuong, a tourist from Hanoi said: "I feel like at home when experiencing homestay services here, especially beautiful landscape, fresh air and friendly local people. I will introduce my friends to this place”.
