Over the course of the five day tour, travelers will be able to enjoy two guided bike trips and one walking tour around the region, allowing scenic yet leisurely exploration offering visitors to stop at will to interact with smiling, friendly locals.

Travelers will enjoy a homestay in one of the Thai-style stilted houses of the Ban Lac hill tribes (who originate from Thailand), the largest group in the Mai Chau region.

For every traveler that embarks upon the cultural exploration, Backyard Travel will make a contribution to a registered charity which aims to enhance the lives of underprivileged locals. Travelers will have the chance to meet and chat with people their donation will assist, and share their experiences over meals and drinks.

“We think many modern travelers see themselves as more than tourists – they feel they have adopted the role of ‘cultural explorers’,” said Backyard Travel’s General Manager Maeve Nolan. “We hope all our tours sate that travel desire but this one especially is perfect for any traveler who’d really love to get to grips with local culture and the sense of community in rural Vietnam.”
