Mai Chau Travel Guide: 18 reviews and 95 photos

Mai Chau was the first stop on our trip to the North and West of Hanoi and we were immediately into the ethnic minorities community. Arriving by the mountains from Hanoi, there is a panoramic view of the rice fields and Mai Chau itself. The main town is nothing in itself, but once you're out in the small villages that make up the place it is a different world. This would be our first homestay in the village of Ban Van as against the village of Pom Koong which it seems is becoming overwhelmed by the tourist industry. But of course economics dictate the needs of the villagers.
