Mai Chau

Experience Vietnamese Village Life

Mai Chau is a beautiful valley in the countryside of Hoa Binh Province. It is only  about 70km from Hanoi but you’ll feel a world away.

Stay in a traditional stilted house with a local family, ride a bicycle through the dustry streets and along the edges of vibrant rice paddies and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. This is also a wonderful place to find souvenirs, handmade by the White and Black Thai people who call this valley home.

We have a few different options for travelling in the Mai Chau area:

  • 1 Day discovering the village by bicycle
  • 2 days / 1 night in Lac Village
  • 3 days / 2 nights Mai Chau and Pu Luong Nature Reserve
  • 3 days / 2 nights Mai Chau and Hoa Binh lake

You can choose to stay in a communal dorm in a Traditional Stilt House or private bungalow in the valley. Either way, you will enjoy great food with local wine and great company!

Thank You for arranging my trips (Ha Long Bay, Sapa, Mai Chau, Hoa Binh Lake, Tam Coc and Cuc Phong National Park) with delicate care. Appreciate your heartful efforts!

Other than the Excellent Bookings, Lily’s hospitality to all guests (including myself) were warm with personal touch!

Lily is very helpful and incredibly honest. We booked 2 tours (Halong Bay and Mai Chau) with her as well as our train ticket to Hoi An. Of all the travellers we met we paid the lowest price by far.

We were greeted with free water bottles every time we went to her office. We even got a good luck gift for New Years.

She was so efficient, helpful, friendly and offered great value for money that we went back and booked another three day trip to Mai Chau, which was also excellent. Akisoak
