Dong Que Homestay
Nestled in Ha Thanh hamlet within the Phuong Do Village, Dong Que homestay boasts stunning views of lush mountains, banyan trees and a famed rice terrace. This family-run homestay is built in the ancient Vietnamese stilt style, with pillars supporting the spacious home and a thatched roof offering refuge from the rains.
Made of wood and bamboo from the nearby forest, this well-loved homestay is ideal for guests who desire an authentic, rustic experience— the real Ha Giang. As this is a homestay, visitors are treated as valued guests and welcomed as part of the family.
Dong Que is warmly staffed by members of the Tay community, a Vietnamese ethnic minority. In Phuong Do village, Tay people continue their agricultural tradition, using Ha Giang’s fertile plains to grow rice, maize and sweet potatoes.
Dong Que offers 10 comfortable beds, each one cozily equipped with mosquito nets, handmade pillows and quilts. The stilt design allows guests to wake up to the sound of roosters then doze off to rushing water and rustling trees.
Adventurers can rent a motorbike or mountain bike and hit one of the area’s many trekking paths. Those seeking tranquility can curl up in a hammock, lounge in the lodge or take a ten-minute stroll to the waterfall. For meals, Dong Que’s on-site restaurant serves up delicious local favorites in a woodsy setting.
Whether guests are completing the loop or just passing through, they will be pleased with Dong Que’s budget-friendly accommodation and excellent hospitality. The homestay features laundry service, WiFi, 24-hour building reception and a souvenir shop stocked with handmade goods. The staff is happy to arrange car pickup and answer questions about things to do in Ha Giang.
