Day 1: Hanoi to Mai Chau

Transfer from Hanoi to Mai Chau – cycle tour of local traditional villages in the area.

You will be transferred in the morning to Mai Chau from your location in Hanoi. The area is simply beautiful, with many traditional hill tribes living in harmony with each other. You will have plenty of opportunity to rest and take pictures of some of these local peoples, including the Muong, Dzao and Thai. At about lunchtime we will arrive in Mai Chau, and we will stop to eat and have a rest.

Check-in will be available from 2pm, following which you will have the chance to continue your bike journey to the settlements of Na Tang and Cha Long. These villages are off the beaten track and far from the tourist trail – the perfect chance to get to know a bit more detail about the local culture. You will be escorted back to your accommodation with enough time to freshen up and have a quick rest before your evening meal, prepared by your hosts.

After you have eaten and sampled some of the delicious food local to the area you will be invited to view a display of ethnic dance. Enjoy this spectacle with a nice glass or two of local wine, before heading to bed for a well-deserved rest.

Day 2 – Hiking tour of local villages in the Mai Chau area

Included – Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Following a delicious breakfast you will be transferred to the village of Mai Ha

Begin the tour with a stroll through the settlement of Kha. Take a walk through the outskirts of the village and enjoy the lush surroundings and native plants and trees. Here is the homeland of the Thai peoples, and you are walking on revered territory. Next stop is the hamlet of Te. This quaint settlement sits on the edge of the woods and is far from the regular tourist trails. Continue to enjoy your authentic experience as you take your midday meal amongst locals in a traditional home.

Once you have eaten you can stroll at leisure amongst the village of Pu and Khoe. Take in local men and women going about their daily business, and witness children playing in the roads, all amongst the backdrop of the stunning mountains and rice fields. From here, it is time to head back to your accommodation where you can relax, perhaps doing some swimming, and enjoy the beautiful scenery. You will once again spend the night in the homestay before returning to Hanoi in the morning.
