Just took full day trip and we felt very regretfully when saying good bye after that a short day. Mai Chau Ban Lac exceeded our expectation and we wish we could stay there for 3 days to enjoy our lives to skip from all what we have to cope up with from city lives. Everything was still natural and people was so friendly and knew well to to deal with customers and hospitality service. Will return soon.

one day private tour It's a beautiful countryside where you can observe vietnamese farming and relax without all the crazy honkings of cars/motobikes from Hanoi city.
