Have you ever wanted to spend a few nights and days in rural Vietnam? This superb Ecolodge gives you a different perspective on Vietnam. Forget the crazy traffic mayhem and motorbikes that never seem to stop moving! Here at the Mai Chau Ecolodge, you are at one with nature in a tranquil reserve. After checking out some of my top sights in Vietnam, this is a great place to relax! Check out their Ecolodge profile and you’ll definitely want to spend at least two nights here to escape the madness of the big cities!
There are four small villages to tour nearby and this allows you to avoid the touristy hubs while staying close to everything in Mai Chau. Here are some of the features of this quality Ecolodge.
Vietnam is manic. If you have read about my trip to Hanoi Hilton/Hoa Lo Prison, Halong Bay and the hiking in Sapa, it is hard to escape the motorbike fumes and street life of the big cities. As a backpacker, you need to head out into the rural wilderness to relax. With stunning views, peace and tranquility, Mai Chau Ecolodge is the perfect spot to relax in.
For an Ecolodge, the luxury here is breathtaking. From the cosy rooms to the outdoor pool, the luxury is here for all to see.
3.Hiking and Walking
In and around the Mai Chau Ecolodge are a range of excellent activities to do. There are lots of idyllic tribal villages scattered around Mai Chau which you can hike to. It is great to get into the natural rhythm of local life, just feel free and wander around at your leisure.
There are some recommended hikes including the Hang Kia – Vặn Village full day hike. Everything can be organised right here at the lodge.
The locals in these parts of the world are well known for their folk dances in traditional costumes. What’s more attractive than watching a folk dance performance while enjoying the local rice wine. You can also get up and join in a dance with the local tribes.
The Vietnamese give good massages and if the swimming pool and relaxing charm are not enough for you, get your body cared for in the best way possible with a relaxing massage.
The natural lakes and valleys of this region pass by tranquil villages and by getting a boat tour, you get into the heart of the local way of life. These are memorable tours and well worth booking.
