Tour summary



Day 1: Hanoi – Mai Chau

Depart for Mai Chau, driving through a most picturesque countryside landscape of Vietnam. With tranquil rice fields, wooden houses on stilts and locals in conical hats going about their daily lives, this rural idyll seems a world away from the hustle and bustle of nearby Hanoi.
In the afternoon, take a walking tour around Mai Chau. This two-hour walk through selected White Thai villages is very flexible to your preferences and physical ability. Walk along mostly paved roads through weaving villages, rice fields and rural scenes to observe how some of the local White Thai people live. We may even get to visit the home of a White Thai villager!
