The rice paddies of Mai Chau flit seasonally between green and gold, carpeting the ground between its villages. These are the workplaces of some of Vietnam’s ethnic minorities – the Thai, the H’mong, and the Dao, each comprising the diverse population of Mai Chau in a cultural fabric woven as intricately as their brocades.
The location of Mai Chau, only three hours from Hanoi, provides the ideal counterpoint to a bustling metropolis in the grip of modernization. This fruitful valley is the picture of Vietnam’s agricultural traditional vibrant world of gorgeous simplicity and stagnant time. This is a great place for a short hideaway from Hanoi’s hustle, which helps you get a closer touch with the Northwest of Vietnam.
