Mai Chau

Escape to the Rural Beauty of Mai Chau

Welcome To Mai Chau

In an idyllic valley, the Mai Chau area is a world away from the hustle and bustle of Hanoi. The small town of Mai Chau is appealing with its lustful mountains and green rice fields. There’s minimal traffic, and the rural soundtrack is defined by gurgling irrigation streams and birdsong.

The villagers are mostly White Thai, distantly related to tribes in Thailand, Laos, and China. Most no longer wear traditional dress, but the Thai women are masterful weavers producing plenty of traditional-style clothing and souvenirs. Locals do not employ strong-arm sales tactics here: polite bargaining is the norm.

Mai Chau is a successful grassroots tourism project with two homestay villages Pom Coong village and Lac village. Weekends are also increasingly popular with ex-pats visiting from Hanoi, so try and come midweek if you can.
