After your meal, continue the drive to Ha Giang which is the northernmost province in Vietnam, consisting of breathtaking scenery, a colorful array of hill tribes and vibrant local markets (these rotate on a daily basis). As this is a remote area, accommodation and facilities are of basic level however we’ll make sure your journey is as comfortable as possible.

This area, like most of Ha Giang, is inhabited by the H’Mong hill tribe. The H’mong group is believed to have migrated from southern China into Vietnam only over the last 300 years and today they live in villages throughout the north of the country. We will have several stops on the way for visit tribal villages and photo opportunities such as Quan Ba Pass; Quan Ba Heaven Gate...

Begin this morning with a visit to the fabulous Meo Vac Market, where vendors come from the surroundings. At the market, they buy and sell fresh produce as well as dry goods (on Sunday the market is particularly busy as it is a weekly market for the surrounding villages). Then we set off for Dong Van, along another beautiful stretch of road. The trip passes through Ma Pi Leng, which is also known as ‘Heaven’s Gate Pass’ as it gives the feeling of touching the sky. The drive skirts the Chinese border through a deep valley. Have a stop at the best corner for some taking photographs and admire the august scenery. Arrive at Dong Van around lunchtime and check into a hotel. In the afternoon, take an easy hike along the road of the Old Quarter and hike further to see the rice field from a small path which goes along the mountains. Get picked up by the car if necessary.

Thence, we take a walk to visit a village of the Lo Lo hill tribe to learn about their unique culture and customs (there is a weekly market here held on Fridays). From Lung Cu we continue on driving to the Palace of the last H’Mong King which is located in Saphin Village. After visiting the palace and lunch, we drive onwards to Pho Bang Town where old style Chinese influenced houses can be seen.
