The bamboo and timber stilt houses that dot the valleys of Mai Chau are very different from the kinds of dwellings you would see 150 kilometres away in Hanoi. They are owned by the Thai hill tribe, the ethnic group living in the area who, every day, enjoy the picture-perfect scenery for which Mai Chau is famous. This Mai Chau Day Trip From Hanoi takes you to the heart of this beautiful region of terraced rice fields, rolling green hills, fertile fruit orchards and the quaint gravel paths that run between them all.
This one day tour from Hanoi offered by Incredible Asia Journeys shows you the best of Mai Chau, through its scenery, people and food. The magical mountain scenery along the way prepares you for the lush greenery that envelopes Mai Chau, where we will cycle, trek and meet the ethnic Thai people who call this rice-terraced valley home.
Activities: Look at panoramic views of the wonderful environment along the mountain roads in Mai Chau, and take a cycling and trekking tour to see the life of local people here.
Our driver and tour guide will pick you up at 7.30am to start the drive to Mai Chau. We will stop a few times along the way to take photographs of the amazing scenery.
Arriving at a scenic village at about 11.30am, we will have a delicious lunch in a traditional ethnic Thai stilt house.
We will take a long cycling tour along Mai Chau’s humble paths, through its small villages and adjacent to its verdant rice paddies. The forested limestone mountains will be ever-present throughout the day, sitting behind caves and waterfalls, giving shade to the farmers as they plough the fields or pluck the rice.
We will trek to areas of natural and man-made interest. The various communes of Mai Chau stretch far from its main hub, and walking the scenic paths will provide a plethora of beautiful photo opportunities.
We will speak to locals about their lives in this consistently gorgeous setting, hearing of their daily routines as well as the age-old customs with which the Thai hill tribe live their lives.
Driving the scenic route back to Hanoi in the late afternoon, we will arrive at about 19:30-20:00 when we will drop you off at your hotel and your Mai Chau Day Trip From Hanoi will finish. Incredible Asia Journeys would like to extend our utmost appreciation for joining us for this day trip to Mai Chau from Hanoi, we sincerely hope to see you again in the future.
