Mai Chau

Mai Chau is located in the mountainous province of Hoa Binh province, approximately 135 km north from Hanoi. Mai Chau village is in the heart of a beautiful valley that is a bright, almost parrot-green in spring and by autumn has transformed into deep golden hues as the rice approaches harvest.

The village's stunning location makes it the perfect base for trekking, mountain biking, kayaking and caving. Mai Chai is home to a number of different ethnic minorities; White Thai, H'mong, Zao, Muong, Tay, Hoa and Viet and each group has their own language, literature, handicrafts, music, dancing and festivals. The Sunday market brings hill tribe people who live in the mountains into Mai Chau to sell their wares, enjoy meals together and take part in traditional dances.

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
