My fiancé and I visited Mai Chau and Pu Luong on a 2 day 1 night trip. We couldn’t have imagined the breathtaking scenery of the mountains and the local villages with their green patchwork of rice fields and terraces which we saw by bike ride and trek. The food and service we received in the places we visited and stayed were excellent. Our guide was knowledgable, enthusiastic and friendly and took care to made sure we enjoyed and were comfortable on our trip. Of the places that I’ve visited in Vietnam and Thailand, this I loved most and would recommend anyone visiting Vietnam to travel here.

Day 1 Pick up at the hotel in Hanoi and stop in a homestay in mai chau after a couple of hours. We had a good lunch with several dishes with the possibility to ask for vegetarian food. After lunch we cycling in the village of Thai minority seeing how they live and their houses. Very nice! after that relaxing in the infinity pool at the hotel. Day 2 Trek in pu luong and amazing cruises on a bamboo boat on the river. On the way back to the hotel we had a short stop to see rice terraces. Then we came back to the hotel for lunch and came back to hanoi. Perfect tour if you want to see how local ethnic minority live, enjoy nature and relax. It is not the best tour if you want the trek on rice terraces.
