DAY 1: HANOI - HOA BINH - MAI CHAU - POOM CONG Leaving at 8:30 AM from your hotel and head toward Hoa Binh City where we stop for refreshments and coffee.
From Hoa Binh, we climb for about 90 minutes up to mountain valley of Mai Chau, stopping on the way to take in the spectacular vistas. Following lunch in Mai Chau town, we checkout the villages of the White Thai people.
After an afternoon exploring the villages, the village people will be hosting the evening and get to taste some of their homemade rice wine. We get experience staying in one of their traditional stilt house as well. The accommodation will probably be a little more rustic than your usual lodgings at home.
Home-stay overnight in Mai Chau.
DAY 2: POM COONG VILLAGE - LAC VILLAGE - HANOI Following breakfast we begin our 15km, half-day trek in a well-known scenic valley, strolling from one village to the next.
As we walk, we will be able to observe the everyday life of the local villagers tilling the fields, logging or herding the buffalo. We reach our destination at Khoe Village before driving back to Lac Village for lunch. After lunch we can stroll around the village hamlets before returning to Hanoi.
Tour ends around 5:30 P.M.

"The most helpful staff"
Nice rooms, decent location, not too loud, pretty standard. It's the staff, however, that made this an exceptional place to stay for my girlfriend and I.
She had a visa problem, and one particular female staff member went out of her way to help us, liaising with the travel agency and keeping us up to date.
Through her efforts we were able to keep our holiday on schedule.
The rest of the staff were also very friendly and willing to assist.
