I loved my 2 days/1 night trip to Mai Chau, even if it meant conquering the cold. The area is pretty and lovely to ride your bike around. Nature place serves the best food, some good and cheap drinks (beer, wine, local drinks) and are very helpfully with extra blankets and a heather. Showers are hot, beds are warm, staff is kind and food is great.

What you need more.

We were on a 10-day NW loop tour and had elected to stay in the Riverside Bungalows based on the generally excellent reviews.

We had a riverside bungalow which had pleasant views over the paddies.

We were unlucky in that the weather was pretty cold. The bungalow was of bamboo with ill-fitting doors front and back and open eaves. A chill wind was blowing between the doors. Although the staff gave us an electric heater it was ineffective because of the drafts. We were also given extra blankets so were at least able to sleep. Temperature in the room was around 10 C.

The eating area is outside. Because of the cold all or nearly all the guests were wrapped in blankets to eat their evening meal. The meal itself was OK.

The dance performance was good for a local troupe. It would have helped if one of the guides present had translated the troupe leader's introduction to each dance.

Breakfast consisted of 2 fried eggs with either excellent fresh-baked French style bread, or noodles. One small cup of sweet coffee was included. A second cup was chargeable, which we felt rather mean, especially as one of us had only taken hot water for her own tea-bag, and something we don't recall ever experiencing before

We did not take any of the resort's tours.

Dear Richard K !

Thank you very much for coming to Mai Chau and staying with our family ! And thank you very much for your sharing review!
We really sorry for the weather on the day you stayed. we tried our best but it seem did not make you warmer.
Yes, we had really cold days past. We understand that sleep in our bungalows in the cold weather is not warm, specially we are face to the large rice field and the bamboo wall is weak so the wind can come into the rooms. As you said, we did give you more blankets and heater to each room to hope everyone can have a good sleep.
Anyway, the winter has gone away. And the weather is very beautiful in Mai Chau now with sunny days, little wind and a large green fields and mountains. So we do hope there will be another chance to welcome you and everyone to Mai Chau. And we sure you will love this place much !
We also will try our best to make the rooms better this winter.

One more time, thank you very much for your visiting us and comment !
We wish you a happy new year and see you !

Best regards !

Do Manh

We booked this tour at the Hanoi Nonprofit Hostel at 17b Hang Ga, Hanoi. The tour was really well organised.  Friendly helpful staff, both at tour office, the guide and the homestay staff.  Superb and generous food.  Lovely traditional accommodation.  Good value for money (we paid $65 for a bungalow, 2 day and 1 night tour - less than the advertised rate of $100). We really had no complaints.

I spent a total of 2.5 weeks traveling through all of Vietnam and Mai Chau was the best part!
My two friends and I were interested in seeing the rice fields in the north. Sapa was well-known spot to go and the only way to get there was by a 12-hour bus from Hanoi (no flights available).
I was looking for an alternative option, and by looking at photos from Mai Chau, it looked very similar to Sapa and was a 4-hour bus ride from Sapa. We booked for 2 nights/3 days.

We were very glad to choose this option because we were the only tourists in the whole village! We got to experience the real agricultural Vietnam and it felt amazing. Minh came to pick us up from our hotel in Hanoi and was our english-speaking guide in Mai Chau. They had bicycles and motor-bikes available to us for touring around. All food was provided and delicious. I'm a vegetarian and they generously catered to my eating requirements. Ka was our tour-guide and took us to various remote locations and we learned a lot about the vietnamese culture and history. We were later able to go and explore the village on our own. No one speaks english but everyone is very friendly and says hello!
A special surprise, we had a group of dancers perform a traditional show for us one night. We felt very special to have this group perform for only us!

They provided mosquito-nets for the beds and they were okay-comfort. I am a very light sleeper so what bothered me where the black roosters crowing at every hour after sunrise.

All in all, we were very happy with the choice of Mai Chau and we were treated very well at the Mai Chau Nature Place

Mai Chau was my favourite destination in Vietnam. The Mai Chau Nature Place made it extra special - I stayed 2 nights/3 days here in December. Must admit the nights were colder than I anticipated but the days were lovely. Lovely staff, absolutely amazing food, went on an awesome motorbike tour to the national park, rode bicycles around the rice paddies, just took in the great scenery and atmosphere, climbed up 1200 steps to the ave. Highly recommended!
