By Minh Duy

Must read

The weather in Hanoi was scorching in July. Traveling to a place that is cooler and closer to nature for one day may be a proper choice. It is in Mai Chau District, Hoa Binh Province, which is not so far from the capital city.

People can breathe cool air in the early morning and evening, trek in beautiful valleys, go to Pa Co flea market, stay in a homestay hosted by Mong ethnic people with lots of fun and enjoy local specialties and experience cultural exchanges in the cozy atmosphere.
