Our journey takes us from the hectic Hanoi to the clean air of the mountains surrounding Mai Chau valley. We stop at a vantage point to take in the serene view of Mai Chau, home to a variety of minority groups with their own unique culture and languages. The break presents a great photo opportunity.
Upon arrival in Mai Chau we head to the village of Pom Coong where our local guide will introduce us to our hosts for lunch and provide information on the region's people, their lifestyles, customs and culture. Lunch is a traditional affair with examples of local cuisine on offer. This is a great opportunity to really experience the local area, chat with our hosts and gain a real insight into local life in the area.!

Mai Chau valley is inhabited by White Thai people, The houses are quite large with palm leaf roofs and polished bamboo-slat floors. The kitchen is located in the center of the house; the cooking as well as the making of the colorful tho cam, the material used by Thai minority to make their clothes, takes place in the kitchen. The windows are large and decorated with patterns. Each house also has a pond to breed fish.
Following breakfast, we visit nearby villages, a popular option is to a bicycle and take a photograph trip around the valley, with plenty of photo stops among the majestic scenery and chances to interact with the locals. The pace is relaxed and the ride takes place on the flat terrain of the beautiful Mai Chau valley – we cycle by green rice fields surrounded by stunning mountains on all sides, a simply breathtaking experience.
We return to your homestay and relax with a cold drink while watching the sun set over the peaceful mountains.
