Mai Chau is located around 135km from Hanoi in Hoa Binh province. Stay in a peaceful valley, sheltered by the outside world by drama. Mai Chau is one of the most beautiful valleys in Hoa Binh Province. Our two-day bike trip will lead you to discover one of Thai's hidden cultures. The Mai Chau Valley is home to homestay tourism villages. White Thai families offer simple accommodation in stilt houses in an idyllic setting of verdant jungle, limestone outcrops, and mountain tops.
