Mai Chau Experience Tour
- Off The Beaten Path
Day 1: Hanoi – Mai Chau – Hang Kia village
Day 2: Hang Kia village – Van village
Day 3: Van village - Khoe - Hanoi
Leaving Hanoi, escorted by your private tour guide, you will depart on your morning drive through the picturesque countryside of rice paddy fields and spectacular, rugged mountain scenery to Mai Chau, home of the Thai minority. Here you will be served lunch in a local family. After that, you will take a one hour drive to Sa Linh Village to begin our trekking expedition. From here, you’ll walk along gravel tracks and small paths used by the locals to Hang Kia village where you will stay overnight as honoured guests of a Hmong family in a traditional longhouse.
Overnight in Hang Kia village
Rising to the sound of the lovely Mai Chau valley, you will enjoy breakfast and bid a farewell to the local host family. Today your trek is quite challenging as you will walk through the tropical rain forest, up and down the uneven steps. It will take about 7 hours with picnic lunch en route. In the late afternoon, you will arrive in Van village where is home to the Thai people. Check in your home-stay for refreshment. The rest of the day will be free to stroll around the village until dinner served by the host.
Overnight in Van Village
This morning you’ll continue your trek through beautiful scenery to the small village of Khoe, where you will meet up with your waiting vehicle and drive back towards Mai Chau where lunch will be provided. Take the chance to do a little souvenir shopping from the great range of local handicrafts before returning to Hanoi.
Tour ends as you arrive at the hotel in Hanoi.

Reviews on Our Service
Incredible Vietnam experience with Tony
Great company, great service
Excellent customer service from Elly Do and Asia Pioneer Travel from start to finish. Elly took the time to come to meet us in our hotel in Hanoi and it was lovely to meet her. We changed our itinerary a couple of times before booking and Elly was always happy to discuss and accommodate. All the guides we had and all of the hotels were great. When you only have a couple of days in each city it was great to have a guide and a driver to whisk you through the traffic. Thanks Elly!
Amazing People and Great Service
We travelled for 7 weeks so the tour that we structured gave us a great mix of guided and free time. We were able to see the normal tourist sites, as well as spend some in-depth time in the villages and communities. This gave us a much greater insight into life in Vietnam and Cambodia. All I can say is that they are amazing and incredible people!
Our guides were great. Our drivers were safe and looked after us very well. I would not recommend anyone try driving on thier own if you are coming from a country where people obey the traffic laws. We learned over time that is is actully very organized chaos!
If you are looking for a great agency, we can assure you that Asia Pioneer cares about you and will look after you with every detail!
Thank you to Mr. Lam and the entire staff.
