The highlights of your stay at Topas Eco Lodge are difficult to identify. Incredible food? Infinity pool? A view of the valley that changes from moment to moment? Or it could be trekking between rice terraces and ethnic minority villages. Needless to say, there are many reasons to visit, but the best is the influence of the pluses brought about by the Topas Group in this part of Lao Cai province. By hiring more than 100 people from ethnic villages, purchasing produce from nearby farmers, and carefully managing waste, water, and energy resources, the lodge has set the standard for sustainable stays in Vietnam.

Hoi An Chic is recommended for a tropical vacation in the bright green fields of Hoi An.

Lactented camp, Dak Lak

Do you enjoy nature? After that, I love to discover lactated camps. This glamping site is located on the shores of Lake Luck, an hour from the airport in Buon Ma Thuot. Get on the boat and get to the dock right away. At the dock, you will be greeted by a restored Mnong stilt house and shown a tent. Each of the 15 tents has a porch overlooking the lake, with comfortable beds, handsome furniture, and ethnic items. Lactented camps provide jobs to communities through tours and designs, not only protecting ethnic minority cultures but also growing their own food on the premises, purifying freshwater from shallow wells, and generating solar power. Heat using. Bravo!

Mango Bay, Phu Quoc

Don’t be fooled by fun names. Mango Bay is serious about at least one thing: environmental protection. This barefoot chic resort on Phu Quoc Island has taken on the baton as the caretaker of the island’s tropical treasures. Operating the resort includes best practices such as composting and on-site water purification. However, Mango Bay is furthering its long-term coral reef rehabilitation and tree-planting projects and is also working with Wildlife at Risk to conduct a Phu Quoc biodiversity survey. If that doesn’t make you feel good, wait until you see the resort’s on-the-rocks beach bar and gorgeous garden bungalows.
