Mai Chau region in Northern Vietnam was by far the most relaxing part of my Vietnam travel and I will go back one day and stay for longer to explore more.
Mai Chau offers absolutely amazing views, fantastic (a bit shy but very authentic!) local people, delicious food, fabulous hospitality and a lot of “Happy Water”. Chúc sức khỏe!
|If you are looking for accomodation in Mai Chau, look no further. Tan Ha Homestay was really amazing and I would recommended it by heart. There is plenty of various activities available. Trekking, cycling, moped rides, amongst others. You can also go high to the mountains but some moderate trekking required. Some idea if you like adventure, trekking, local people and another fascinating cultures:
Đôn village, Thành Lâm commune, Bá Thước district, Thanh Hóa Province or you can map it here: https://goo.gl/maps/iSJJ9xa1oeN2 or they call all over this mountain is Pù Luông, its means Massive, Big, Giant Mountain.

Great photos. Are you watching the Ken Burns documentary series about the war. Very interesting.
Hi Carmen, no, not watching… I’ve been to Vinh Moc Tunnels in Central Vietnam, in War Museum and The Independence Palace in Saigon (I will maybe post some photorelation once it’s ready and I am happy with it).
The War Museum was pretty scary. You can see there many war photos and the stories on the biological weapon that US used in Vietnam (agent orange among the others, I guess) and it’s consequences to this day… Some unpleasant views. I am struggling to understand how human could do something like that… :/
There is an interesting article about the problems and consequences of this activity (!!): https://www.theguardian.com/world/2003/mar/29/usa.adrianlevy
Shame on YOU, Uncle Sam!
