The Mai Chau Valley, a little more than 80 miles (135 km) outside of Hanoi, is a wonderful example of rural life in Vietnam, and a great idea for a day trip. The views of the valley from Cun Mountain give an impressive overview of the fertile land below; once you descend into the valley, see the stilt houses and enjoy locally-made rice wine and a traditional lunch.
What to Expect:
In one day, explore the natural and cultural beauties of Mai Chau Valley in Hoa Binh. Take a biking tour around the villages of Mai Chau and have the chance to be overwhelmed with the beauty and landscape and the friendliness of people in Mai Chau.
