Had an amazing time in Mai Chau. Beautiful farming town surrounded by mountains in Northern Vietnam. Our tour guide was excellent, he was very good at giving us information and anything else we needed but also gave us space to sit and enjoy ourselves. He took us on a bike ride around the town; to a local swimming spot for a dip to get out of the heat for a bit; as well as up the thousand steps climb (difficult with the heat but very worth it). We we're also able to see a local water dancer show. The food at our home-stay was some of the best food I had in my entire SE Asia trip. Would love to do the trip again and stay an extra night or two just to relax and enjoy the calm and beauty of the area.
