3. Rejuvenate Your Feet: Betel Leaf Soaking and Foot Massage at Tu Lan Lodge

At Tu Lan Lodge, you can experience a foot soak with Betel leaves and a massage performed by local staff. While sipping a cup of hot ginger tea, you can also admire the Tan Hoa field at night in a cozy and peaceful atmosphere.

Foot soaking with Betel leaves is a traditional Vietnamese therapy that helps reduce muscle pain, improve blood circulation, and bring a sense of relaxation after hours of exercise. The foot soak ingredients include Betel leaves, ginger, salt, and warm water.

All are put in a wooden basin to keep the heat longer. Betel leaves contain natural anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving ingredients; warm water will help you feel extremely comfortable.

After the foot soak, combined with a foot massage with coconut oil, this therapy helps relax muscles and nourishes the skin, bringing a soft and smooth feeling.

Please note that you should book the service in advance with the reception of Tu Lan Lodge to ensure availability and avoid long waits.
