Located in the northern Vietnam, the Mai Chau Valley of Hoa Binh province has long become a must-see place for visitors to the province, especially for a weekend holiday from Hanoi. On the way to Moc Chau, travelers have a chance to not only observe the daily activities of the locals but also admire the beautiful landscapes in mist.
Mai Chau is a small town with no luxury accommodation. Tourists who come in groups of 40 to 60 people should rent a stilt house with blankets, mattress, fan, TV and karaoke. They can order meals with the house’s owner. Some recommended dishes are sticky rice cooked in bamboo sticks served with chicken, local pork, steamed fish and can wine.
For leisure activities, travelers can try camping by a fire with a bamboo dance and take photos in brocade costumes of ethnic people.
