One Day To Bac Ha Market On Sundays Morning Only

This Sunday market is Bac Ha´s big draw. Bac Ha market is a magnet for the local hill tribe people, above all the exotically attired Flower H´mong. They gather at the market to trade goods and handmade products. There are a lot of handicrafts for sale, but it is still pretty much a local affair. The market begins at sunrise and winds down by 2 pm.


Bac Ha market, located in the heart of Bac Ha small town is the largest one in this area. Every Sunday, the different and colorful ethnic minority come all here to sell their homemade products or buy something for family. They are H´mong, Phula, Black Dao, Tay or Nung minority. Some of these ethnic minorities can not be met in any other areas.
