What you'll do

This is a tailored tour with a small group and run by a born-and-bred native (Truong) who knows Mai Chau like the back of his hand Itinerary: -The first activity for the day will be heading out to the rice fields nearby where you will learn about general farming knowledge and the rice growing techniques that Mai Chau farmers are the masters of. You will get to practice ploughing the fields with a water buffalo, seed planting or harvesting depending on the time of the year -Next you will come back to Truong’s house to clean up and have a drink with some snacks before heading to the next stop to learn how the local Thai tribal women weave and create beautiful traditional materials that can be made into clothes, scarves, rugs and souvenirs -After this everyone will back to Truong’s house to enjoy the most amazing and authentic food prepared by Truong and his wife. The traditional dishes may include wild boars, grilled beef rolled in beetle leaves, bamboo shoot stir-fry or traditional Thai sticky rice -Truong will then take you to a local “brauhause” where they brew the Thai rice wine that you just tasted during lunch! A step by step presentation of the complex process will be shown to you from start to finish -To end the tour Truong will take you back to his place (which is also a homestay and a restaurant) to have some refreshments with herbal tea and local fruits
