An isolated farming community until recently, Mai Chau is slowly opening its doors to visitors.
The stunning scenery and engaging White Thai inhabitants, make a stop here a truly memorable experience.
Mong and H'mong people
Hopping on a bicycle and heading into the more simple and tranquil villages that are dotted around the area is a fantastic way to discover traditional village life in full swing. You will not have to stray far to encounter both Mong and H’mong people, and you are likely to stumble across women weaving under their stilted houses and children playing in the streams, as well as local farmers at work in the fields with their water buffalos.
