Bac Hoa – Beautiful land with gentle people

(BGO) - The sound of crow in Bac Hoa village, Tan Son commune, Luc Ngan district, both Bac Giang and Lang Son provinces hear. Getting there, the way is far but easy to go. The place is a beautiful land with gentle people. It is home to hundred-year-old ancient houses amid peach and plum trees, hard-working people who make many delicious and famous products, and the passionate Sloong songs. Those create a treasure that is opening up opportunities for tourism development in Bac Hoa.

Ancient Bac Hoa

On the way to Bac Hoa village, I heard many interesting stories about the customs and habits of the Nung ethnic people, the Tan Son "love market", and the Sloong singing festival in the spring...

Leaders of the commune and village visit the locals in Bac Hoa village.

The road to Bac Hoa village has been built with capital and cement from Programme 135, Resolution 07 of the provincial People's Council and the people’s workdays. With a teapot, chatting with us were Secretary of the village Party cell Hoang Ngoc Phien; village head Vi Van Cheo; head of the village’s Front work board Lang Quoc Ky; and Hung Van Ty, 62, a reputable old person.

Ty is the fifth generation of the Nung people here. His ancestors were the first Nung people who came from the provinces of Cao Bang, Bac Kan and Lang Son to set up the village. That day was more than 200 years ago. The Nung chose a place with beautiful terrain, leaning against the mountain. It has a long, wide stream named Khuon Tieu, with a low hill ahead and terraced fields at the foot of the hill.

The story of setting up the village told by Ty seems to be that of yesterday, but now Bac Hoa village has nearly 160 households with more than 700 people. People who come first help those who come later. It has become a solidarity tradition of the Nung ethnic people. The Bac Hoa people create a unified bloc, sharing common work and together rising up to catch up with a new life.

Bac Hoa is beautiful and peaceful. In recent years, the poverty rate here has decreased by 10-15 percent per year but poor households still account for about 30 percent.

To achieve sustainable poverty eradication, the Party cell and leaders of the village have urged people to strongly shift to planting fruit trees of high economic value and raising cattle and poultry instead of only growing rice, maize and green bean.

The lychee area in Bac Hoa has increased significantly in recent years. Notably, the lychees in Bac Hoa ripen later than those in other places in Luc Ngan district so they are sold at higher prices.

According to village head Vi Van Cheo, regarding cultivation, the village will continue to maintain the output of specialty rice varieties such as sticky rice and ‘bao thai hong’ rice, while for animal husbandry, Bac Hoa has its own direction of raising pigs and capon sold on the occasion of spring festivals. Roast pork and capon meat are favourite dishes of tourists whenever coming to Tan Son.

Potential for tourism development

Bac Hoa village leans against the mountain and has a mild stream that offers fish and shrimp all year round. Seeing the picture-like landscape, visiting the ancient houses, watching the weaving of towels and indigo dresses and enjoying delicious specialties are attractive to many visitors. Bac Hoa is still like the "beautiful girl sleeping in the forest" that few tourists know about.

As the person assigned to be in charge of Bac Hoa village’s Party cell for many years, Standing Vice Secretary of the communal Party Committee Hoang Van Cham commune clearly understands the advantages for tourism development here. He encouraged people to plant peach and plum trees in bare land and hills and along roads.

This year he advised the communal authorities to support farmers to pilot the growing of chrysanthemum for seeds on two hectares. It is expected that the chrysanthemum field will bloom on the occasion of the Tan Son Spring Festival.

In the long term, Luc Ngan district is building a tourism development project in Tan Son in general and Bac Hoa in particular, Cham said. Bac Hoa will develop community tourism.

Today, coming to Bac Hoa village for the first time together with Hoa from the district Cultural Division, we see Cham, a leader of the commune, "incites" farmers to plant lots of flowers. We hope that the tourism of Bac Hoa will bear fruits in the future.
