Mai Chau 1 day

Mai Chau 1 day
Seasoned travelers to Vietnam may be familiar with the enchanting White Thai communities of the Mai Chau Valley of Hoa Binh Province Vietnam. But in the same lush valley, a group of ethnic Muong communities have begun opening their doors to tourists in Pa Co Commune. Boasting the same rigid mountains and rich rice fields as Lac and Pom Coong hamlets, where the White Thai have been welcoming homestays for Travel Mai Chau all years round, Pa Co also offers a centuries old tea forest that is still cultivated today.

On this full-day tour, you will depart Hanoi and drive approximately 44 miles (73 kilometers) southwest of the city, via one of Vietnam's most scenic drives.

On the way, stop to visit the Hoa Binh Hydroelectric Plant, the largest hydroelectric dam in Southeast Asia.

Continue along the road as it hikes up into green limestone mountains, revealing fresh rice paddies and fruit orchards below. In the summer, each orchard is a different color as the fruits begin to ripen.

Behind the crowded shops that flank certain parts of the road, crystal clear canals and patches of jungle shine in the distance. As you approach Mai Chau Valley, traditional stilt houses can be seen interjecting themselves between the modern homes.

Upon arrival at Mai Chau, you will enjoy trek tour through a rich forest the color of bright green parrots, stopping at secluded villages, such as Lac, Van, and Pom Coong. Explore the daily life of the Thai minority people, and learn more about their ancient traditions and customs.

Return to Hanoi for the end of the services and a hotel drop-off.
