Day 1: Hanoi – Pom Coong Village – Xo Village (B, L, D)
In the morning we depart Hanoi for Hoa Binh, then Mai Chau valley. After about 3,5 hours we will be in Mai Chau. After having lunch in a white Thai family in Pom Coong village, we depart for Sam Khoe village, where we start trekking for 8 km to Xo village. We will stay in one of their traditional stilt houses. There, we will be toasted as honored guests and will be able to sample some of their homemade rice wine! In sampling these people’s hospitality, we will discover a little more about their lives and culture following the evening meal. Tonight’s accommodation will probably be a little more rustic than your usual accommodations at home. Overnight in the house on stilts in Xo village (Easy trekking 2 to 2.5 hours).
