Chau is the heart of a beautiful valley that is a world away
from the hustle of Hanoi. The modern village is an unappealing
sprawl, but as you emerge on the rice fields and rural living
is transformed into a real paradise. It’s a stunning
area, and the most people here are ethnic White Thai, distantly
related to tribes in Thailand, Laos and China.
Although most local
no longer wear traditional dress, the Thai women are masterful
weavers who ensure that there is plenty of traditional –
style clothing to buy in the village centre. You will see
women weaving on looms under or inside their houses in the
village. Much of the silk looks similar to that seen in Laos.
The Thai of Mai Chau are less likely to employ strong-arm
sales tactics than their H’mong counterparts in Sapa:
Polite bargaining is the norm rather than endless haggling.
