Sapa is well-known for fresh atmosphere, pretty valleys and outstanding culture of ethnic minorities. It is deserved to visit but it’s too far for short trips because we have to sit in coach in 6 hours to approach there. Instead of a long tiring trip, come to Mai Chau –the Northern mountainous area and you still have similar experiences with just a 3 -hour drive.

Far from Hanoi about 140 km to the West North, Mai Chau attracts tourists by the peace of villages, the greatness of mountains and the uniqueness of stilt house.  Taking a bike to travel around is an interesting way to admire the beauty of this small town. Lac and Pom Coong villages are two main destinations h
ere as the living place of Thai residents.
