Head to Mai Chau
Good morning! At 8:30 am, jump onto our minibus in the Old Quarter, where you’ll begin your journey to Mai Chau. This scenic drive lasts for about 4 hours, and along the way you’ll be able to drink in the views of fields of tapioca and sugar, as well as the iconic rice fields.
You’ll reach Mai Chau village by lunchtime, and have time to check-in to your beautiful homestay and enjoy a home-cooked, authentic lunch. After lunch, your local guide will pick you up and take you on a bike ride through the beautiful landscape to Mo Luong Cave.
A natural cave that rips a fissure in one of the mighty limestone mountains of the region, explore the cave to drink in the incredible stalactites and the surrounding scenery, a poetically beautiful landscape of rivers bending their way to distant mountains.
Your guide will show you around this beautiful corner of the country, and you’ll discover tiny villages, peaceful streams and leaf houses in the shadows of great mountains, before heading back to your homestay.
Your dinner will be cooked by your host family, then enjoy kicking back in a hammock and watching the sun go down over the rugged horizon, as cows go trundling past and the sounds of nature wash over you.

With the knowledge that this tour is getting off the beaten track and immersing you in true Vietnamese culture, please bear in mind that this isn’t your typical 4-star experience. However, the homestays we work with are extremely clean, comfortable and friendly, and the only way to experience truly living like a local!
