Mai Chau, Hoa Binh Province

Mai Châu is located in the North of Hòa Bình province, 150km way from Hanoi. From the edge of Thung Khe mountain pass, you can have the full view of Mai Châu valley surrounded by high mountain ranges and stilt houses. Many minorities, including the Thai ethnic group, live in Mai Chau.

Stilt houses built along both sides of the roads. The houses are large with palm leaf roofs and polished bamboo floors. The kitchen is located right in the center of the house, the cooking as well as the making of the colorful clothes, takes place in the kitchen. All the windows are large and decorated with patterns. Each house usually has a pond to farm the fish.

Sunday is the day that many tourists from cities come up to explore the region. The Sunday market brings people from different minorities living in the mountains come to sell their specific products: honey, bananas, corn, and clothes made by skilled Thai women. The Sunday market is also an occasion to enjoy traditional Thai dishes and to participate in the traditional dances.

Mai Chau is the best place for all exploring activities as motorbike ride or trekking tours to the villages around. Making a guided motorbike tour is the best way to discover the area. Tourists especially enjoy the minority specialty dishes including rice cooked in bamboo and grilled pork meat. They also enjoy watching traditional dances, music performances and singing. The remote minority villages are the attractive sites for tourists.
