But it’s also open to other guests and is perfect if you want to stay away from the tourist trappings of the other villages and relax on a beanbag enjoying a beer. It’s the standard homestay set-up but mattresses are a bit thicker, bedding less flowery and good English is spoken. Brightly coloured bicycles are available to rent and you can book tours of the nearby villages as well as further afield: a service which isn’t readily available at other homestays. It’s a bit pricier than those in the other villages, but only 50,000 more a night. To get to the homestay, turn right off the main Mai Chau road, opposite the market, and follow the road down past the wall and over the stream. Take the first turning on the left and it’s just along this road on the right. Book a package at the hostel in Hanoi or drop in to check availability.
