Located north-west of Hanoi, Mai Chau is a great choice to experience rural Vietnam. This picturesque location, with stunning rice fields, forests, lakes and unique culture of the White Thai people makes it a popular choice for those wanting to explore outside the well-trodden Hanoi, Ha Long Bay and Ninh Binh. Although there is a well-defined tourist area in the centre of Mai Chau, YESD offers you a chance to explore further with trek and cycling tours feature a visit to the Pu Luong Nature Reserve.



We give local people employment, income and learning opportunities so they are directly involved in your tourism experience. Our guides and hosts will give you a special insight into culture and life in Vietnam.


We aim to minimise the negative impacts of tourism on the environment and the local community while contributing positively to local economies. We don’t just talk responsible tourism, we act!
