0800 A.M Our tour guide and driver pick you up from the hotel and we head out of Hanoi to Hoa Binh City. Once the traffic is less busy, we’ll start feeling the amazing greenery of the rice fields and mountains in the country. Then, the road goes up slightly and we’ll see more and more lovely mountains by the road sides.

Once we have passed Hoa Binh City, the road goes up further and the mountains get wilder and the air is just purely fresh. We’ll stop at Thung Khe Pass where you could admire the amazing nature around from high altitudes. Passing through the Thung Khe Pass, we’ll descend into the Mai Chau Valley, home to the White Thai ethnic group.
