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.

I just came back from a private day trip. It was a 3 hour drive from Hanoi, but it was all worth it. We stopped seversl times for picture taking because the place is just do beautiful. Mai Chau offers a very relaxing and peaceful atmosphere, so this is highly recommended if you wanted a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. Biking was also fun and very easy, but i don't recommend doing this during summer. I would love to stay longer. Probably, i'll do the overnight stay when i get back.
