Itinerary

Day 1: Sapa - Lao Cai - Bac Ha Market

Our promising journey will start from Sapa – the dreamlike city of Northern Vietnam. The first destination of the trip is Bac Ha Market – a special place where you can witness the rich culture of different ethnic minorities. We need you to make sure that you will stay focus and drive carefully in any case. This is because we are going to admire the breathtaking sceneries with stunning terraced fields and mountains of the Hoang Lien Son range. According to our plan, we will get to the Bac Ha market after three hours of riding.

So what makes this market worth our visit? Bac Ha Market is not merely a place people come to sell and buy things. It is where the cultural quintessence of Mong, Tay, and Nung ethnic groups can be found together. The market is open only on Sunday and closed in the afternoon. Therefore, for local people, this is more like an event rather than a kermis. You can easily recognize that trading is not the only concern here – people come here to chatter, enjoy some food, and sometimes show their new clothes.

Visitors are surprised by what they see: you can find almost anything here – livestock, household electrical appliances, fruit, food, farming tools, brocade clothes, and accessories. It is advisable to enjoy some local specialties – Thang Co and corn wine. Also, you can buy some souvenirs to impress your beloved ones.

After meandering around Bac Ha Market, we will continue to visit Hoang A Tuong Palace. The palace was built by a Tay person (Hoang A Tuong’s father) in the early last century. After nearly 100 years, the Asian Western mixed architecture of the structure still a real allure, especially with the incredible landscape surrounding.

We also want you to try Xeo dance with local people. We can assure you that you will enjoy dancing here since it’s absolutely different and fun. Don’t miss your chance to buy some fragrant corn wine in the village of Ban Pho.

It’s good to see the core values of an old mountainous region are maintained so well.
