Bac Ha is one of the gems of Vietnam’s north. At a lower altitude than Sapa, it’s not as spectacularly beautiful but it’s still scenic and also much less touristy. The real draw to Bac Ha is the vibrant Sunday market attended by local Flower H’mong, Tay, Dzao, Nung and Giay ethnic minorities. Of all, there are 10 different ethnic minority groups who live in and around Bac Ha, and a visit to the market is a great way to introduce you to their way of life. You could haggle for a pig, a chicken, a water buffalo or perhaps just some handicrafts and some of the renowned local wine. Either way, you’re sure to be charms by the city and it’s famously friendly people.
