Video trekking in Mai Chau is one of my latest video clips I have created on my recent trip to Mai Chau Vietnam. Mai Chau valley is located in Hoa Binh province, about 150 kilometers west of Hanoi. It lies only 150 m above sea level. Mai Chau attracts many visitors each year. Mai Chau district has about 50 000 inhabitants, including seven ethnic minority groups – the White Thai, Hmong, Zao, Muong, Tay, Hoa a Viet.
Whites and Black Thai people are the biggest ethnic groups of this region, they have the ancestors from Thailand. These people are building big houses with their specific architecture, houses are on stilts and provide protection against the water and dangerous animals. And these houses will be your accommodation at this place. You can also watch local farmers how they work in the rice fields.
Staying overnight in a homestay with locals is a true experience to learn more about its culture, history and people. Walking tour around Lac village, you could see farmers working on the field, water buffallos on the field, biking around the town, seeing Thai ethnic museum, 1000 steps cave, enjoy local foods.
