Ha Noi / Mai Chau

Mai Chau is about 135 kilometers faraway from Hanoi. Tourists have a chance to contemplate the striking views of this area from the Cun peak. Mai Chau which is in the midst of lush valley with the existence of stilt houses is home to Thai minority. Alongside the way, there are a lot of stilt houses. They are fairly big and formed by a glazed bamboo floor and palm-leaf house top. In the middle of the house is a kitchen where the local people prepare food and weave the brocade. This kind of fabric is the main material of their garment. Stilt houses which have big patterned windows own a fish pond.

We are going to leave Hanoi heading toward Luong Son. On the way there, we can admire the striking sceneries of rural villages. After that, we drop in on Thay Pagoda and then travel to Mai Chau by cycle. There, we are served a meal at noon in a restaurant of native people. After eating, we are free to stroll around the area. At night, we take a rest in a native’s house.
