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 focused 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 has a real allure, especially with the incredible landscape surrounding it.

We also want you to try the 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.

Day 2: Bac Ha - Si Ma Cai Town - Muong Khuong Town - Lao Cai - Sapa.

On the second day, we will leave the Bac Ha market and head for Si Ma Cai Town, which is known as the largest livestock market in the area. On the way, we may have a precious opportunity to take a closer look at the Can Cau market of Hmong Hoa and Giay people. It is held on every Saturday and also holidays. You will witness hundreds of local people in colorful traditional clothes come to trade and express love. Surrounded by endless terraced fields and lush forests, Can Cau appears to be so charming. It’s good to see the core values of an old mountainous region are maintained so well.

Bac Ha Motorbike Tour

After saying goodbye to the Can Cau market, we will go to Muong Khuong town. The best thing to do here is ride on the tortuous passes and explore the majesty of nature. Watching a small town nestling between towering mountains and hills is always full of excitement. Then it’s time to bid our farewell to Muong Khuong and get back to Sapa. Our two-day trip from Sapa to Bac Ha market will inevitably end up with memorable experiences.
