Quang Binh Province is located in a unique position at the narrowest part of Vietnam. It is only 50km wide from the Eastern coast to the Vietnam – Laos border.

During the Vietnam War, Vietnamese soldiers and Laotian people considered each other as family members. The making-friend ceremony is called Xiều. For years, the people of Phong Nha have been trading and exchanging with people from other villages along the Vietnam – Laos border, they also called each other Xiều (my friends, my brothers). Gradually, it has become a slang word local people use to call their friends and relatives in a dearest way. If you have ever joined Oxalis’s tours, you may have heard Oxalis guides and porters call each other as Xiều.

The entire company is inspired by a unique motto that we hope our customers will experience when choosing Oxalis:

“Arrive as our guest, leave as our Xieu”

Indeed, at the end of every Oxalis adventure, many of our customers and staff became close friends and consider each other as their dear family members. It is with good will and a friendly nature, that Oxalis always wants to make Xiều with our adventurers, and always looks forward to our Xiều coming back to join another exciting adventure with Oxalis, to see how well Oxalis has grown and to see their dear friends again.

To create more of this precious cordiality, Oxalis Adventure has launched a programme called Xiều Oxalis. This offers special privileges that only Xiều Oxalis will get, such as a 10% discount for our tours, including:
