Mai Chau valley located in the West North of Vietnam with its convenient distance and transportation from the capital(3 hours by bus) makes it an ideal overnight escape. Here you will see small, traditional homes featured with ethnic minority ( white Thai) designs lying among a patchwork of paddy fields and surrounded by soaring mountain peaks.
TOP THINGS TO DO IN MAI CHAU:
Sleep in a home-stay
The Mai Châu Valley is home to two of the most successful home-stay tourism villages in Vietnam: Lac and Poom Coong. In both villages, White Thai families offer simple accommodation in stilt houses right on the edge of vibrant rice fields.
Cycle around the valley
Both hotels and home-stays offer bicycle rentals for travelers. Exploring the many quiet ribbons of paths that connect clusters of stilt houses might be the greatest pleasure you'll have in Mai Châu. It doesn’t take long to get away from the crowds and feel like you’ve found your own quiet corner of the valley, riding past humble villages and rice paddies.
Shop for local crafts
Mai Châu has no shortage of local handicrafts and intricate fabrics woven by skilled weavers on ancient looms. On Sunday, head into Mai Châu town where the morning market attracts people from different ethnic minorities who come dressed in their finest traditional clothing.
Eat with the locals
Known for their warm hospitality, the White Thai are also fantastic cooks and serve up excellent home-cooked feasts for dinner—ideal to replenish your energy reserves after a day of bicycle adventuring. The meals you're served at the homestays in Mai Châu might be some of the best on your Vietnam trip.
Plan a day trek
There are countless treks you can take from Mai Châu, and your hotel should be able to set you up with a guide if you need one. For a full day trip, add a kayaking excursion on nearby Hòa Bình Lake. This is a beautiful body of water surrounded by jungle hills. For more remote and adventurous options, venture a little further to the Pu Luong Nature Reserve.
Visit Pu Luong Nature Reserve
It is easy to spend a few days doing little else than admiring the nature around Mai Châu, but a wander through the forests is richly rewarded. Scores of cool, fresh streams run among the trees, feeding waterfalls and aquamarine pools ideal for bathing in the afternoon heat. For the best experience hire a guide and head deeper into the area.
