This trip offers a great opportunity to see the two areas of outstanding nature beauty; the North-West highlands in Mai Chau and limestone mountains in Ninh Binh. As we ride in Mai Chau we encounter Muong and White Thai minorities and are guests in their traditional stilt houses allowing us to see firsthand how these minority peoples live. In Ninh Binh, we explore the beauty of “Halong Bay on the rice fields” by boat.
