For the last three years, Mr. Yasushi Ogura from Japan has visited Lung Cu, Dong Van, Ha Giang province every month. Yasushi Ogura opened Cà phê Cực Bắc or the northernmost coffee house in Lo Lo Chai village which is a must stop for visitors on their journey to the Lũng Cú Flag Tower.
Yasushi Ogura is not a businessman, but this long-term visitor to Việt Nam invested his money to help a farming couple open a coffee shop in the northernmost part of the country.
His interest is not in earning a return on his investment, but to help preserve the indigenous culture of ethnic minority communities in Hà Giang Province.
His dedication has won him a special place in the hearts of ethnic minority residents of Lô Lô Chải Village in Hà Giang Province.
Come with “The northernmost coffee house” is very unique. It was upgraded from the oldest house of Lo Lo Chai village which is around 200 years old. The original architecture of the house has been maintained with a fence made of stones and a thick wall that keeps it warm in winter and cool in summer. Especially the drinks here are also delicious.
So if you have a chance to visit Ha Giang, do not miss this special cafe.
