hanoi travel agency - 'Siu chau' candy is crispy, tasty, sweet and so fragrant. This tasty candy requires the skillful experience of local makers and generations of tradition.
It’s made from popular ingredients in the area such as malt, sugar, glutinous rice flour and peanuts.
It has to be cooked and cut into pieces in a very short time, about 10mins, so that it doesn’t solidify and become too difficult to cut. See: hanoi tourist
Siu Chau candy is stored inside a jar of glutinous rice to seal its taste, and blend the flavors of the rice with the flavor of the candy.
The candy is often eaten with tea to enhance the taste. It is the perfect present to bring home as a souvenir for your friend and relatives!

hanoi package tours - Vietnam’s tourism sector received good news in early March, which signal a promising year with eventful events.
Phong Nha listed in Top 5 incredible explorable caves
Wanderlust, an UK-based famous tourism magazine regarded Phong Nha as the best cave for fossils.
According to Wanderlust, Phong Nha's magnificent grottos are filled with spectacular stalagmites and stalactites and are distinctive examples of a complex karst landform. This has resulted in underground rivers and the development of a maze of caves. It's no surprise that the caves have been granted UNESCO world heritage status. See: hanoi airport to halong bay
Phong Nha is also a fossil-rich site and a location where new caves are still being discovered. The entrance to the 44.5km, nine-cave system is via an underground river that connects with the Son River – tour boats can penetrate inside to a distance of 1,500m.
Phong Nha is situated at the center of Quang Binh province in north-central Viet Nam, 500km south of Ha Noi. There are lots of trekking, kayaking and swimming opportunities locally too. Be sure to lookout for a multitude of beautiful butterflies if you are there in March, April or May.

Around 51,000 foreign tourists accounting for 55.4% of total number travelled to the central province.
