  • Day 1 : Hanoi - Driving Da River - Mai Chau Homestay

    At 8.00. Start in the morning, our tour guide and our car will drive you to the west of Hanoi. Passing by a picturesque golf course built between mountains you will stop for refreshing at a roadside café after the first 50kms.

    Continue your drive until reach to The White Rock pass, you will turn right to the hidden roads going through villages. A bit bumpy for the first 30 minutes, which is perfectly done by vehicles like Jeep, then you get to Hoa Binh Reservoir. It seems like you see another Ha Long Bay on mountain. Stop for photos, enjoy fresh air and the grand view of the lake. Keep driving along the reservoir bank, you will get to a Muong’s home. The host was a former local authority officer; retired now but full of energy and warm hearted. His house is nice, isolated and located just by the reservoir, you can swim if the weather permits.

    Have lunch at his house and have chats with him over cups of tea. Enjoy your time until depart for Mai Chau. Continue a short drive on the bank until you meet up the main road again. Arrive in Poom Coong a nice village located in Mai Chau Valley; check in your accomodation and stay relaxed.

    In the evening, dinner will be served with local dishes. A traditional performance after dinner will be offered to group. This is chance to get to know more about local people, who are well-known for their friendliness and hospitality.

    Note: As traditional custom of Thai People, the host will come to you with cup of rice wine which you can never say no. The local people drink for health, luck, happiness and friendship so even if you are not alcoholic, just hold the cup and say 1 2 3 Dzoooo……. loudly.

    Waken up by natural alarm- the roosters. Have cup of tea or coffee, sit back and watch the villagers beginning a new day: some sending their kids to school, some going to the farms. Enjoy the breakfast and then start a morning walk around the villages to learn more about rural life, take more photos of this peaceful area and friendly people.

    Back to homestay, pack your stuffs, farewell to the host and set off for Hanoi. Just few kilometers from Mai Chau, you will conquer the pass of the day: The White Rock, it is long and the most challenging of the trip.

    On the way, you will stop to visit a private museum, the owner is an artist who is crazy lover of the Muong culture. He has collected thousand objects of the Muong culture to display in this museum (Muong is largest ethnic population in Hoa Binh Province, one of the largest minority groups in Vietnam with population of 1.3 millions). Take a visit to museum, from the objects, photos, model houses you could understand more about this minority group.
