Destination Overview

A vision in every season, Mai Chau is a highly recommended stop for all travellers taking Northern Vietnam holidays. During springtime, it is a lush, bright green, and just before the autumn rice harvest, it transforms into a golden hue. Travellers who visit Mai Chau during these times can count themselves lucky for the opportunity to witness these colours.  Situated in a valley, Mai Chau is surrounded by tall cliffs and bright-green rice paddies that make it a sight to behold.

The beauty of this place is the reason why so many visitors stay much longer than planned. Various establishments in Mai Chau serve traditional Vietnamese fare, although nothing beats the family-style cooking. Rather than a bustling nightlife, visitors to Mai Chau can expect to be treated to some rice wine and a traditional dance performance. A variety of cultural activities are also in store including cultural walks and market tours.

The birthplace of the Vietnamese nation, Northern Vietnam boasts scenic splendour with mountainous regions and the buzz of the city. This guarantees a visit that enthrals and inspires in equal measure. Home to the Vietnamese people for nearly 5,000 years, Northern Vietnam remains the cultural heartland of the modern Vietnamese nation. Offering the best of all worlds, the region boasts remarkable landscapes, mouth-watering cuisine and a great depth of culture. The region takes you on a journey past world-famous scenery, bustling old towns and the lesser known delights of Ninh Binh and Mai Chau. The dramatic diversity of landscapes in the north makes the region a scenic pinnacle in a country of breathtaking beauty. Hike among towering rice terraces in the mountains, drift along slow lotus-lined rivers and be introduced to the delightful tastes and smells of fabulous street food. The variety in this region is bound to inspire you during your holiday in Northern Vietnam.

Mai Chau

Once the destination is decided upon, one of the first questions that cross the mind of a traveller is “when’s the best time to go?” Luckily, with Northern Vietnam, anytime can be a good time to travel.

The unique weather patterns of Northern Vietnam owe their presence to the monsoonal season, which gives each time of the year an advantage. Some plan their holiday to Vietnam to avoid the heat and crowds, while others go to meet the people and experience the culture during fun festivals and events. Each season in Northern Vietnam will meet one of these expectations, if not all.

The months of April through June remain an unpredictable time in Northern Vietnam, as the season transforms from spring to summer. The April 30th holiday, which marks the Reunification of North and South Vietnam, is typically held against a backdrop of cool weather with occasional light rains. Towards June, the temperature and humidity rises, although the air remains nice and fresh. Springtime offers fine weather with less crowded attractions, as this is the low domestic season in Vietnam.

From the month of June to early September, Northern Vietnam sees a record high in the volume of domestic tourists who crowd its mountain retreats. Popular spots such as Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, Ky Son, Ninh Binh and Mai Chau will see queues of travellers on a tour in Vietnam. In terms of weather, summertime in Northern Vietnam is a hot and wet period. Sun and beach lovers will not find a better time to visit the region than this.

Between the months of January and March, the weather in Northern Vietnam is characterized by cool and occasional light rain. This is a recommended time for a Vietnam holiday due to the great weather and abundant festivals. Nature lovers who plan on trekking early in the year into the rural mountains of Northern Vietnam should bring an extra coat to keep them warm as temperatures can drop to record low levels. The winter period also sees the most colourful festivals taking place such as the Tet Festival.

Winter is a golden time to visit Northern Vietnam as the sky is clear and the winds gentle. Moving closer to December, the temperature drops in distinct contrast to the previous tropical climate. Late September to early October offer an ideal occasion for a Vietnam tour to the north to see the beautiful colours. With moderate temperatures hovering in the 20s, this period between September and December in the north of Vietnam is a time for romance and tranquility.
