Day 1: Hanoi Motorbike Tour To Mai Chau Valley

The ride to Mai Chau valley from Hanoi departs at 8 am to ensure you're in top shape. After about 1 hour of driving to the West, you will completely get rid of the hustle and bustle of the city and immerse yourself in the rustic rural setting.

Although Mai Chau is a mountainous district, the road is not as bumpy as you might think. Along the two sides of the road, you will see rustic villages with typical architecture of stilts and wooden houses of the Muong and Thai ethnic groups.

Stop and enjoy lunch to learn about the unique culinary beauty of the ethnic people here. After that, you will continue to drive along Da river lake to enjoy the scenery.

This road is located between the rocky mountains winding along the Da river lake, bringing the feeling of "the sea in the mountains" to anyone on it. Even though there are several other ways to get to Mai Chau, we recommend you choose this route the most.

You will stop at Mai Chau valley at 5 pm - the ideal time to watch the sunset from the hill. Then rest up and get ready for your evening cuisine!
