Auberge de Meovac - Hundred-year-old Hmong ancient house in Meo Vac

Translated by Bing
Meo Vac Ancient House - Auberge de Meovac also known as We Pua (in Hmong means by the stream) is located in a rather small alley in the center of Meo Vac town, at the end of the famous Ma Pi Leng pass.

There is too much to say about Auberge de Meo Vac or is often known by Ha Giang tourist believers as the ancient house We Pua. But the first special thing that you can feel clearly when you just arrive in this homestay is the feeling of wading back in time, returning to space more than 100 years ago to witness life in a rich Hmong family. Auberge de Meovac has both a millennial tradition here but still full of modern living facilities.

Auberge de Meovac is a typical Hmong house. The walls surrounding the house are stone fences stacked on top of each other without any adhesives. Yet over time, this wall has survived.

Stepping inside the Auberge de Meovac is a square boulder garden. The house has a yin-yang tile roof, earthen walls, columns made of Satanic wood with a stone base symbolizing the poppy. If you pay attention, you will see aniseed symbols arranged with yin-yang tiles and placed on the roofs and canopies at the main gate.

There are three types of rooms in Auberge de Meovac for your trip to Ha Giang: single room, double room and dorm with prices ranging from 15 - 60 USD/person/day.

The whole building has 3 single rooms, 2 double rooms and a dorm that can accommodate about 12-14 people. Of course, this homestay is not for the majority who like the noise and loud sound parties. It is for those who like a quiet, comfortable space with traditional Hmong characteristics.

The combination of tradition in Hmong houses with modern amenities makes Auberge de Meovac very different. The familiar items of compatriots are brought into the rest space, bringing unique experiences to you.

Around Us Pua is still the garden house of Hmong people, so the space is quite quiet, there is almost no sound of car engines but only the sound of birds pinching, crickets chirping, mixed with the sound of buffalo muzzles of neighbors.

It will be a very interesting experience when sitting down to eat breakfast while watching people go to the market through the alley, colorful with interesting sounds by different languages.

At night, the lights light up in our guest house Auberge de Meovac - where people talk together, enjoy a cup of warm corn wine, let yourself immerse yourself in the immense emotion in the middle of the rocky plateau.
