Lac Village

Lac Village in Mai Chau is really suitable for those who love peace, quiet, longing to be immersed in the space of the mountains. This place is also suitable for those who like to experience, explore the culture of mountainous ethnic in Hoa Binh.

Lac Village is over 700 years old, people in the Lac are mainly black Tai, earning their lives by farming and weaving brocade. This place is a gift of mountains and forests for those who love tranquility and quietness to join in the green mountains of Hoa Binh.

At present, the Lac has nearly 30 homestays which are spacious and airy to serve the needs of tourists. Stilt houses on the Lac Village are all high, spacious and clean, keeping the old architecture. Inside each service house is fully equipped with blankets, mattresses, pillows.

Take a walk around the village, you will not see any uncomfortable feeling because people do not insist you to buy souvenirs. The items such as scarves, Thai skirts, lovely wallets, bow, crossbow, flute, buffalo bell, gong, and buffalo horns are sold in front of the house. You can take pictures without fear of being noticed or complained, even you buy them or not.
