MU CANG CHAI TOUR
About some 300 km Northwest of Hanoi, Mu Cang Chai is one of the most amazing landscapes of rice-terraced fields in Vietnam.
Located about 1000 meters above sea level, Mu Cang Chai has a special topography with steep hills and deep valleys where the local residences such as Hmong, Thai, Dao have created the master-piece, Terraced Fields. They has cultivated about 500 hectares of rice terraces for centuries in La Pan Tan, Che Cu Nha and De Xu Phinh communes. In 2007, the fields was recognized as national heritage sites for its amazing landscape. The fields look stunning during the rice season. The best times are the planting season (June) and the harvesting season (The end of September to the beginning of October). During harvesting season, ready crop is turning to yellow, while new crop is dotted with white of water and young green of seedling rice. The scenery is a big attraction to photographers and trekkers.

Mu Cang Chai 3 day tour
We took an awesome 3 day tour to Mu Cang Chai from Hanoi. Our guide Thanh and driver were wonderful throughout. Thanh's knowledge and enthusiasm for the area was fantastic. The trekking day in the mountains among the rice terraces was perfect - isolated unearthly beauty - an incredible experience! The car journeys were long, but there's no better way to get there and the views are spectacular the whole time. Highly recommended!!
Great customized trip through Northern Vietnam
Julie helped us plan our customized trip through Northern Vietnam in advance. She was very flexible, gave us a lot of tips, but also gave us the freedom to plan the trip how we wanted to. The 9-day trip went very smoothly and worry free, thanks to the tour guides and the driver. We had a tour guide for our hiking trip to Mai Chau, Moc Chau and Mu Cang Chai and another tour guide for our cycling trip to Ninh Binh. The tour guides were very knowledgeable about the regions and country and their English was very good, their attention to detail was often crazy good. The driver drove very carefully. The food in the homestays and along the road were of exceptional quality. The bikes for the trip to Ninh Binh were in very good condition. Julie's openness to feedback along the road and when back in Hanoi was also great.
Wonderful trip with an astounding guide
Seeing Mu Cang Chai was a must for our trip to Vietnam. Our whole tour was just wonderful. We spent four days touring this luscious landscape with the best tour guide Mr. Giang. A very experienced guide, he was knowledgeable, friendly and great company. Definitely request him when you book!
Magnificent scenery and breathtaking beauty of North Vietnam
We just came back from a 6D5N trip from Hanoi, Sapa, Bac Ha, and Mu Cang Chai. We arranged our private tour through Ms. Minh Ninh of Custom Vietnam Travel. Our communication with Minh was nothing but perfection. She was quick to respond to my inquiries and put together a draft itinerary for review. We made a few tweaks here and there, all with quick turnaround. Minh is a great communicator, and she understood my needs and did her best to accommodate my travel requests as well as lodging arrangements and food allergies. She left no room for error and I was very pleased with all the arrangements and recommendations she made for us...
