Muong Te is one of Vietnam's most remote outposts, 98km northwest of Muong Lay along the .scenic Da River. The majority of the population is ethnic Thai, although they have assimilated enough to be nearly indistinguish able from the Vietnamese. Other minority groups found in the area include the Lahu (Khau Xung), Si La and Ha Nhi. Apart from a small Sunday market and some nearby villages, there is not much to see or do in Muong Te. The only accommodation available in town is the shabby People's Corn mittee Guesthouse, which also has a small restaurant.
