  • Trip Duration: 2 days



Visit the highlands of Vietnam's Mai Chau region and see the natural beauty of jungle-clad limestone mountains, patchwork quilts of green rice fields, tea plantations and waterfalls all dotted along the landscape. The region is also home to ethnic minorities each with their own unique culture and beliefs.


Depart Hanoi early in the morning for a 3.5 hour drive to Mai Chau which located 150 km northwest of Hanoi.  Just an hour beyond Hanoi, after crossing Hoa Binh Town, the road weaves through mountains, fertile valleys and traditional villages.

Arrive in the picturesque Mai Chau Valley surrounded by spectacular karst rock formations and rice paddies.

Traditional lunch in a local family (vegetarian available). After that, spend the afternoon exploring the idyllic natural surroundings. Enjoy a bicycle ride with your tour guide, see farmers working in fields, locals weaving scarbes and visit surrounding peaceful villages. Then, there is free time for cycling, walking, shopping.

Enjoy the dinner and drink the traditional wine "ruou can". Enjoy a traditional Thai performance of music and dance. The Thai ethnic group has inhabited this area for centuries and much of their lifestyle and traditions have remained unchanged over the years.  

Stay overnight in a traditional stilt-house of the Thai people, an incredibly enriching experience which helps you learn Thai people's fascinating culture. (The home stay accommodation consists of comfortable curtained-off sleeping areas in one long room; all bedding and mosquito nets are provided).
