BEAUTIFUL MAICHAU VALLEY

  26/01/2015

Mai Chau Valley is set in the stunningly beautiful, mountainous region of Hoa Binh Province, 135km south west of Hanoi. Many of Vietnam's indigenous ethnic minority groups live in the region, making the local Sunday markets colourful places to be! Throughout the week the region provides an excellent base for light trekking or cycling, thanks to the picturesque valleys and rice paddy terraces, the friendly locals and the many small villages that make ideal destinations to break from your day's activities.

“In an idyllic valley, the Mai Chau is a world away from the hustle and bustle of Hanoi. There’s minimal traffic, and the rural soundtrack is defined by gurgling irrigation streams and birdsong. The villagers are mostly White Thai, distantly related to tribes in Thailand, Laos and China. The Thai women are masterful weavers producing plenty of traditional-style clothing and souvenirs.” (Lonely Planet)

Mai Chau is growing in popularity due to its convenient location, just three and half hours by car from central Hanoi, offering the perfect solution for visitors keen to escape the busy city streets of Hanoi and elsewhere in Vietnam.  

Sol Bungalows is easily accessible, offering the perfect base to explore the region. Just a few minutes walk to Lac and Pom Coong villages, our premier location allows you to avoid these touristy hubs while staying close to everything in Mai Chau.
