Mai Chau Tour – 2 Days

Mai Chau is a mountainous region located in Hoa Binh province, approximately 135 km from Hanoi and 65km from Hoa Binh. The Ban Lac People have Thai ancestors that settled in the North-Western area of Vietnam. The tribe White Thai settled in the same area and make up the largest ethnic population of the region. 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.
