Wonderful time in Mai Chau and in the bungalows. The ride in mini buses from Hanoi is quite ruff but what a delightful surprise. A completely closed rice-field valley with great tracks for motorbikes. You will be able and need to rent some for about 4-5 USD a day and would definitely recommend doing so. Don't worry about traffic jams, or the hurry of Hanoi, Mai Chau is a small town. Simply be careful whilst driving on the main street, trucks tend to speed up. Also, drive up to a bar/viewpoint on the side of the main road going into the valley. I would finally recommend the half day tour in the natural reserve.
It was worth staying two nights and not only one like most trips advised.
