Mr Vu (Tan’s Father) was born and grew up in this village of Doan Xa. Born in 1948 he left school early to heed the call of the country ‘to join the fight against foreign aggression’. As such in 1966, at the age 16 he enlisted in the army. He was a part of the best division of Northern Liberation Force 308; a group of smart and well trained soldiers who successfully fought and survived 3 of the biggest operations (1967, 1968 and 1972) in the American War.
When the war was over, he returned to Doan Xa village, sick of the terrible things that had occurred during the war to become a farmer. However, Vietnam in the 1970s and 1980s saw the mass collectivization of farms and factories and this along with a subsidized economy made it very difficult to produce enough food for his wife and family.
Throughout this difficult economic period Mr Vu remained happy and lived by the motto “do good things and good things will return later’. Many years on he is extremely proud of his three sons, each have a university education, and he is enjoying a peaceful and happy life in his rural village. To add to this Mr Vu loves nothing more than sitting to the wee hours of the morning, sipping traditional rice wine and sharing stories with his guests.
All in all, our aim at Vietnam Eco Adventure is to provide each and every customer with the most unforgettable Eco experience while at the same time providing a clean, comfortable and homely retreat for guests to enjoy if they choose to stay with us.
