Mai Chau is the heart of a beautiful valley and is a world away from the hustle of Hanoi. The modern village is an unappealing sprawl, but as you immerse on the rice fields and rural living, it turns out to be a real paradise. This stunning area is home of White Thai ethnic group, distantly related to tribes in Thailand, Laos and China.
Although most local no longer wear traditional dress, the Thai women are the masterful weavers who ensure that there is plenty of traditional – style clothing to buy in the village centre. You will see women weaving on looms under or inside their houses when wandering around the village. Much of the silk looks similar to that seen in Laos. The Thai people of Mai Chau are less likely to employ strong-arm sales tactics than their H’mong counterparts in Sapa: Polite bargaining is the norm rather than endless haggling.
