Day 1

Morning: Rise early for your hotel pick-up in Hanoi and start the journey to Mai Chau. You’ll stop to take a break at Luong Son and then on the stunning Thung Khe Pass where there is a local market run by the Muong people.

Arrive in Mai Chau Valley for lunch where a vegetarian option is available.

Afternoon: Step inside one of the traditional stilt houses to learn about how the ethnic Thai community live and then take a bicycle ride through the village to see more of the community. Stop by the handicraft village to learn about traditional weaving techniques and local designs – you can support them by buying their local products as souvenirs for friends and family.

Check-in to your homestay in Mai Chau. You’ll have some time before dinner to take a shower or wander around the village.

Enjoy dinner cooked by your hosts and sample the homemade rice wine with the family, before enjoying their traditional Thai dance performance.

Day 2

Morning: Rise early with the sounds of the village waking and enjoy a simple breakfast at your homestay.

Board the van to go to Pu Luong Nature Reserve, around 45km away. Stop on the way to visit a small local factory that makes chopsticks! 

In Pu Luong Nature Reserve, we’ll take you on a beautiful trekking route to soak in the mountainous scenery and stunning rice terraces.

Enjoy a break for lunch in a small village, before trekking back to meet the driver for your return journey.

Lily’s suggestion:

Extend your Mai Chau trip for an extra day and get off the beaten path in neighbouring Moc Chau.
