About Mai Chau (Mai Châu)
Mai Chau is a rural district of Hoa Binh province in the Northwest Vietnam. The district is located at about 150 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.
In one day, we explore the natural and cultural beauties of Mai Chau Valley in Hoa Binh. Take a biking tour around the Thai villages of Mai Chau and have the chance to be overwhelmed with the beauty and landscape and the friendliness of White Thai people in Mai Chau.
