With the plan to travel to the mountain area we would like to recommend you the charming and local place : Mai Chau.
Located in Hoa Binh province in the northwest of Viet Nam about 160km from Hanoi. The 3.5 hour drive from Hanoi by bus takes you passing wonderful limestone mountains, lush rice paddies, endless sugarcane plantations and small villages. This off-the-path destination offers a wonderful combination of cultural immersion and pleasurable activities. Beautiful and peaceful Mai Chau is a place where the air is clean and fresh, the women are skilled by generations of silk weaving and naturally beautiful, a place where a simple and slower paced lifestyle is enviable … A perfect 2 day culture and trekking excursion!
