Mai Chau Tours from Hanoi


Located 130 km away from Hanoi to the west, Mai Chau is a small highlighted village in mountainous area named Hoa Binh province. This stunning area is friendly designed to fit with all group of ages, especially for those who love natural beauty and wish to discover Vietnamese culture with many ethnic people living and creating such a great community attract tourists through many years. Travelling to Mai Chau is a good idea for those who have short time travelling to the North of Vietnam but desire to do trekking and immerse yourself at a mountainous area with rice paddy fields, countryside scenery, relax at a hill tribe family staying at a stilt house. Compared to Sapa which requires about 7 hours on bus from Hanoi, Mai Chau valley will be the alternatives for those who require a short and perfect escape from Ha Noi.


Mai Chau is good to travel at any month of the year thanks to its pleasant climate. From November to February, you will be amazed by a Mai Chau with colorful white and pink plum and cherry flower blooming at the winter time. But during March to October, Mai Chau attracts many travelers who come to relax and experience its cool weather and enjoy the local culture ò  White Thai trible. Visiting Mai Chau, travellers should spend at least 2 Days 1 Night so that you can join the night in the long house of Thai trible and home cooking in Thai kitchen.There are lots of sense that not carry in this writing, you got to experience and feel and touch. Just try to manage your travel time during the rice harvest since all rice paddy fields will be fired with color by that time. My personal suggestion is visiting Mai Chai better in the weekday to avoide the crowd of local visitors during the weekend.
