Where to Stay in Mu Cang Chai

Mu-cang-chai Farming Rice Paddies at Mu Cang Chai

Considered as an off-the-beaten-path destination, Mu Cang Chai, is famous for the terraced rice fields and fabulous views of the Vietnamese ethnic countryside.

The best time to visit Mu Cang Chai is September - October.

Mu Cang Chai Homestays - most homestays/guesthouses are called "Nha Nghi" in Vietnamese

We ordered the Mu Cang Chai rice wine with grilled chicken for dinner. The stir-fried morning glory vegetable is also a great pairing with hot white rice on a cold night. Highly recommend the grilled chicken paired with the Mu Cang Chai rice wine!
