EXPLORE BAC HA MARKET - CAT CAT VILLAGE - HAM RONG MOUNTAIN 3D2N BY BUS
Bac Ha is a famous mountainous regional market in the Northwest taken place every Sunday. Bac Ha Market is the place for exchanging traditional products and culture.
The northwest market town of Sapa is colorful and charming, providing the perfect oasis in the midst of a strenuous mountain trek or rice-paddy tour. The Gothic stone church at the center of town is a bull’s-eye in the center of shops and stalls, serving as a reminder of the town’s French missionary influence. Dine on Vietnamese or European-inspired cuisine downtown, and don’t miss the Saturday night "love market," one of the most potent—and strictest—single’s nights imaginable.
Sa Pa is a town in the Hoàng Liên Son Mountains of northwest Vietnam. Popular with trekkers, it overlooks the terraced rice fields of the Muong Hoa Valley, and is near the 3,143m-tall Fan Si Pan peak, climbable via a steep, multiday guided walk. H’mong, Tay and Dao hill tribes make up much of the local population.
