Mai Chau Overview

Mai Châu is a rural district of Hòa Bình Province in the Northwest region of Vietnam. The district is located at about 160 km from Ha Noi. The scenery of Mai Châu attracts many tourists.

Mai Chau is an inspiring combination of stunning scenery and fascinating local culture. Whether your preference is for gentle strolls through verdant valleys or energetic hikes in search of minority villages deep in the forested mountains the Mai Chau region will deliver an unforgettable experience.

Only three hours drive from the bustle and throng of Hanoi lies a rustic, mountainous region that feels a world-away from modern life. The town of Mai Chau sits in a broad, fertile valley surrounded by high, forested mountains. The area is home to a number of minority groups: the Thai residing amongst the rice paddies of the plain; others including the Hmong living high amongst the mountains. The attractive villages retain much of the traditional wooden stilt-house architecture that makes this such an appealing destination, some offering simple but good quality homestays.
