Meo Vac is a small town in the north of Vietnam. The beauty of the valley, surrounded by limestone mountains, is breathtaking.

My suggestion:
To travel in this region you need a permit which you can get in Ha Giang. It's best by motorbike!
Summary:

Meo Vac has places to stay for tourists but otherwise no particular attraction.

The road from Dong Van to Meo Vac is breathtaking. Surrounded by such vastness I felt tiny and, above all... lucky to have seen such an exceptional view! This stretch by motorbike was my favourite of the whole trip to Vietnam. The mountains are majestic!

If you want something off the beaten path, then this region is unmissable. Along the road you meet different ethnic minorities on foot (Hmong, Lolo, Dzao), loaded down with crops from the fields. The women in their traditional costumes and jewellery are truly beautiful. These people have kept up all their traditional customs and culture. We stopped to talk to several people on the side of the road; some seemed a bit wary but others were intrigued. But you are definitely in unknown territory and that's good...

So you must have understood by now, there's nothing else to say but: go there!
