The first stop is Mai Chau Valley. Set in an idyllic valley, hemmed in by hills, the Mai Chau area is a world away from Hanoi’s hustle. The villagers are mostly White Thai, distantly related to tribes in Thailand, Laos and China. The Thai women are masterful weavers producing plenty of traditional-style clothing and souvenirs.
Afterward, we spend time having local style lunch in a Thai traditional stilt house
Next, cycle round the valley with our guide to see farmers working in fields, locals weaving scarves and visit surrounding peaceful villages.Mai Chau Valley is a very good place for people who like to do some activities such as walking from village to villages or take a bike trip along the village road through the wet rice fields and simply sitting on the house-on-stilts to enjoy the peaceful and quiet atmosphere of the village.
