There are different routes for you to choose to explore the endless charms of the scenery and local culture. The best time to visit is during rice harvest season in September or in May and June when farmers water the fields for new crop. You can combine this with tours to Mai Chau Valley and Pu Luong Nature Reserve for more experience of the tribal life and picturesque scenery. We also have modules in central and southern Vietnam for longer active holidays and diversified landscapes. Most of tours can be customized to suit individual interests and schedules.
