Maichau homestay experience 2 day trip
Vietnam Homestays >> Maichau
This trip to the north west highland of Mai Chau offers a balance of cultural and physical activity set amongst some northern Vietnam’s stunning natural landscape. We trek for one and a half days through villages in Mai Chau and overnight in a White Thai village where we have opportunities to observe the local lifestyle of these minority people. From the mountainous region of Mai Chau, we travel back to the nations capital, Hanoi.
Day 1: Hanoi - Hoabinh - Boat trip - Maichau
We depart Hanoi and head west towards Hoa Binh City where we stop for refreshments. Leaving Hoa Binh we climb towards the Mai Chau valley, about another two hours away, stopping on the way to take in the spectacular scenery. Following lunch in Mai Chau town we drive to the White Thai village of Poomcong. Afternoon we walk to the surrounding village. Our hosts for this evening will be the White Thai minority people. In sampling these peoples hospitality, we find out a little more of their lives and cultures with a cultural exchange following the evening meal. Tonight’s accommodation will probably be a little more rustic than you would be used to.
(Lunch and Dinner included).
Day 2: Maichau village - Lac & Van villages
Following breakfast we embark on a lovely walk to Lac village and Van village. As we walk we will encounter the local villagers going about their daily business tilling the fields, logging or herding the buffalo. We enjoy lunch in Maichau before we drive back to Hanoi. Visit Muong village in Hoabinh.
