What an amazing recommendation from a friend. I travelled alone but an excellent guide was fab. Very in formative great humour and made the trip very interesting. The retreat was new but superb food and infinity pool. A great way to meet new people and easy to decide on a schedule. Well worth the trip. Mai chau biking was fun and the homestay with Vietnamese people felt very welcoming. Beautiful scenery and people in the rice fields are very happy to say hello.

Nice place Nice place to see but on a two day trip. For one day it is to short stay and too long way to go with bus. The food is good, bike trip shows nice views around the town.
