FROM SAMPAN AT PERFUME PAGODA TO TRAILS AT MAICHAU
The Perfume Pagoda is famous for the whole complex of shrines and temples built into a limestone hillside, making the venue for a religious festival which attracts a lot of pilgrims especially ones living in the North Vietnam.
The trip to Mai Chau is a joy of trekking along the hills and streams watching over the huge flat rice fields below, or getting across the terraced farm next to the villages. The enjoy also comes with interaction with local White Thai people, living in their stilt houses, taste their local food and experience their beautifully traditional dance.
The combination of Perfume pagoda with Mai Chau trekking is perfect not only at saving time factor as they are close to each other, but also an interesting comparison in culture, religious belief and life style of different ethnic people in Vietnam.
