Mai Châu is a rural district of Hoa Binh province in the northwestern region of Vietnam. The district is located at about 160 km from Ha Noi. The scenery of Mai Chau attracts many tourists. The Mai Chau area is well known for its stilt houses. The type of stilt houses, or pile dwellings, they construct are called Thai stilt houses and are made of bamboo and timber. These houses are elevated 10-12 feet off the ground in order to avoid water damage and shelter animals from the elements.

A Recent Review of this tour

This is a long trip but well worth doing. The scenery becomes quite spectacular as you gradually climb into the mountains. Mai Chau is set in a valley and to reach it you have to climb up a mountain before descending to the small village below. After a delicious lunch, Anh took me on a bicycle ride through the rice paddies and local villages. Anh is friendly and passionate about sharing his knowledge of Vietnam and its people. I highly recommend Anh as guide and would definitely use him again.
