La Vie Vu Linh is a community tourism development project with a strong focus on responsible and sustainable investment activities through Education, Environment and local Culture preservation. The long term goal is to bring about a better life to the Dao Minority people living in the region and more widely to contribute to the Yen Bai Province economic development.



La Vie Vu Linh is happy to announce the arrival of a couple of young French VSI (Volunteers for International Solidarity), who will stay for an initial period of 1 year starting from March 2019. Fanny and Sébastien will help in the Eco-Lodge General Site Management as well as the Maintenance and further Development of the socio-ecological associated projects.



LaVieVuLinh has just implemented a “low season” operating mode as from December 2018 until further announcement from the Management. Consequently the Lodge will only receive and serve clients having made advanced bookings for accommodation as well as for meals. The Lodge reception will be closed when no bookings have been made.

Thank you for your understanding!


The eco-lodge built according to local traditional technics is nested amongst the other houses of the Dao minority Ngoi Tu village and is closely connected to the local cultural and social life. The lodge staff are mainly recruited from the nearby villages and tourism activities developed are all carried out with the participation of the local Dao Community providing them with the opportunity to improve their living conditions.
