The Cuc Bac Café, meaning the northernmost point café, has become a famous landmark in the village.
Yasushi Ogura, a Japanese man, loves the beauty of Lung Cu, built a cafe to promote community tourism and improve the lives of local people.
Ogura invested in its furniture and invited people to teach Luc Thi Van, owner of the building, basic English communication as well as how to make coffee and drinks.All business activities are currently handled by Van and his wife.
The gate leading to the house, also the café, is lined by stone fences.It has a tiled roof entrance, on which is a shaded peach tree.
