Pedal around the rural district of Mai Chau, a collection of ethnic villages framed with green meadows and valleys, easily accessible on a day trip from Hanoi
Travel 130 kilometres away from Hanoi and discover the quaint rural district of Mai Chau in Hoa Binh province. The village is well-known among visitors for its stilt houses or pile dwellings, made of bamboo and timber. The houses are elevated up to 12 feet above the ground to avoid water damage, protecting its residents from the harsh elements. The village is surrounded by green rice fields, valleys and hills and this lets you fully indulge in the natural beauty of Vietnamese countryside. Travel along Thung Khe Pass, bike through rice paddy fields and lunch with the White Thai ethnic group. Led by a professional English speaking guide, this tour is a great day trip from Hanoi to discover rural life and expansive nature
Mai Cháu exceeded my expectations. The lunch was fantastic. Driver will super good. Tour guide was humorous and fun to chat with. Provided super informative history of the minority. The bike quality can improve but is enough to get you through the biking journey.
With such a huge discount, this tour was worth it. If you want to visit the countryside and see local people and taste their food, this would be the tour for you. It was a nice break from Hanoi ;)
