Discover The Hidden Mai Chau Valley – 2 Days

Trip overview

The Northwest of Vietnam is still unspoiled and hidden too much of the outside world. Beautiful landscapes dotted with small, peaceful villages make this region as a great visit. Travel on roads through green valleys and along cliff edges, enjoy a scenic boat trip on the Ma River, and spend your night in a traditional stilt-house and meet the friendly ethnic Thai people. All this makes for an unforgettable experience.
