Great time in wonderful Mai Chau area and villages around. Had a cool bicycle ride and a walk in the Valley to discover the ricefields and Thai houses & living environment. Our guide is a great guide who explained a lot about local ethnies. He also had so many ideas to shoot photos and videos so I now have unforgettable memories of the days spent in this beautiful area. So much fun ! Thanks again

Incredible trip to Mai Chau. Arrived to a delicious lunch prepared at a home stay. This was followed by a bike ride around the local village with plenty of photo opportunities. Our Guide Chung was a superb host, he really went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed. I really enjoyed the delicious food, trekking around the beautiful rice fields and learning about local life. I have never seen bubbles being blown from the stem of a leaf before

Our family did a two-night homestay here, and it's quite pleasant. The village was really peaceful, the air was fresh and the villagers were friendly. We had a wonderful experience by helping out the house owner with his field work.
