MU CANG CHAI TOUR
Located approximately 300 kilometers northwest of Hanoi, Mu Cang Chai boasts one of Vietnam's most breathtaking landscapes of rice-terraced fields. Perched at an altitude of around 1000 meters above sea level, this region boasts a unique topography featuring steep hills and deep valleys that have served as the canvas for the masterful terraced fields created by local residents such as the Hmong, Thai, and Dao. Spanning over 500 hectares of land in La Pan Tan, Che Cu Nha, and De Xu Phinh communes, these rice terraces have been cultivated for centuries, earning recognition as national heritage sites in 2007 for their stunning landscape.
The fields are truly a sight to behold during the rice season, which runs from June to the end of September/beginning of October when they look their best. During the planting season, the fields are alive with activity as the locals begin the laborious process of planting new rice seedlings. By the time the harvest season rolls around, the fields have been transformed into a stunning patchwork of yellow ready crops and white water channels intermixed with vibrant green seedling rice. This picturesque landscape is a huge attraction for photographers and trekkers alike.

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...
