Mai Chau Valley Experience

Mai Chau Valley Experience

Mai Chau valley and Northwest Vietnam are still unspoiled and hidden too much from the outside world. The beautiful landscapes dotted with small, peaceful villages make this region a great place to visit. Travel on roads through green valleys and along cliff edges, meet the friendly people when walking the villages and spend the night in the traditional stilt houses of the Thai ethnic people.
