A rural district in the northern part of the country, Bac Ha is a beautiful amalgam of various minorities that call Vietnam home. It is the capital of the Flower Hmong region and is most famous for its colourful and vibrant Sunday Market. You can also trek through the gentle northern mountains here, which are a beautiful sight to behold.
The region of Bac Ha is home to many charming villages that house almost 54 minorities of Vietnam and six groups of Hmong people. This region is a mix of activity on Saturday evenings when the weekly market comes to life, and this celebration of Vietnamese culture continues on Sunday as well. From intricately designed handmade traditional clothing to delicious local cuisine, all the essentials of this vibrant culture find a place here. You can interact with the locals and learn about their culture and lifestyle, which is a mesmerising experience in its own right. Popular items that you can buy from here include different textiles, saddles for horses, bags, cushions, figurines and other handcrafted items. Bac Ha is also famous for Tam Hoa plums. If the landscape captures your attention which it inevitably will, you can try your hand at trekking here as well.
