MAI CHAU HILL TRIBE VILLAGE FOR 1 DAY
This trip to the northwest highlands of Mai Chau offers a nice balance of cultural interest and physical activity set against a backdrop of stunning scenery.

DAY 1: HANOI – HOA BINH – MAI CHAU – POOM CONG (L/D)
8.30 We depart from your hotel and head toward Hoa Binh city where we stop for refreshments and coffee.
10.30 Leaving Hoa Binh, we climb for about 90 minutes up to mountain valley of Mai Chau, stopping on the way to take in the spectacular vistas. Following lunch in Mai Chau town, we strike out for the villages of the White Thai people.
After an afternoon exploring the villages, we will be hosted for the evening by the village people and will stay in one of their traditional stilt house. We will be toasted as honored guests and will be able to savor some of their homemade rice wine. In sampling the evening meal and generous hospitality, we will gain insights into the lives and culture of the people. The accommodation will probably be a little more rustic than your usual lodgings at home.
Home-stay overnight in Mai Chau.
