Located in a beautiful upland valley, Mai Chau is a mosaic of rice fields, bamboo groves, and scattered settlements of the White Tai people.
It is the Tai who give this valley its unique atmosphere, with their picturesque villages of bamboo and timber houses raised on stilts. Tai women are skilled weavers, with looms in use below most of the houses and Tai weavings making a fine momento of a visit to this area.
Stay with TUI in a Tai family house for a night of traditional hospitality and warmth. After dinner, we may have the opportunity to see some Tai dancing – or perhaps just bed down in the communal house before an early rise for a walk around the valley.
