Begin your day with an 8:30am pickup from your central Hanoi hotel and soak up the scenery as you drive west into the hills of Northern Vietnam.
The journey to Mai Chau takes around four hours, but there will be plenty of stops along the way to gaze out across the valleys, visit rural villages, and take photos. Arrive in Mai Chau around midday and follow your guide to a traditional stilt house, where you’ll be treated to a scrumptious lunch of typical Vietnamese cuisine.
After refueling with lunch, set out to explore the village and the surrounding countryside on a leisurely 2-hour cycling tour. Along the way, pause to admire local handicrafts, watch demonstrations of age-old weaving techniques, and see farmers working in the rice fields.
Around 3pm, set out on the return journey to Hanoi, where your tour ends with a drop-off at your hotel around 7pm.
