Stay awhile longer

From the minute you arrive in Hoa Binh, Northern Highlands, Vietnam, you’ll feel at home, and be warmed by the cooking fires and welcome you’ll experience at the shared table of the hospitable locals.

 

The mountainous province of Hoa Binh is a peaceful haven from the bustle and traffic of Hanoi and being just 74 kilometres away it is easily reached for a short break. The perfect place to unwind is the picturesque town of Mai Chau, situated in a lush green valley of rice fields surrounded by soaring peaks. Nearby Thai villages offer accommodation in welcoming home stays, the perfect way to experience local life.  For something more luxurious, try the Vietnam accommodation at the very stylish and nearby Mai Chau Lodge. 

 

 Hoa Bin is blessed with many natural attractions from spectacular caves to pristine forests and lakes. Activities include biking or trekking with a local guide or simply kick back and have tea at one of the accommodating stilt houses and chat to the friendly locals.  After dark enjoy a home-cooked meal cooked over an open fire, and try the local wine but beware its strength! Be entertained by traditional dances and cultural performances.

 

 The people of Hoa Bihn are proud of their heritage and their diverse ethnic blend.   Muong traditional culture can be found throughout the region with many handicrafts and designs featuring their distinctive designs.
