Full-Day Bac Ha Cultural and Market Tour from Sapa

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Head from Sapa to the sleepy town of Bac Ha to soak in the vibrant atmosphere of the Bac Ha Sunday Markets - the largest in the region. Observe the mix of Flower H’mong, Phu La, Black Dao, Tay and Nung ethnic minority traders that journey to the market from the surrounding mountainous areas. Browse the colourful stalls stocking a variety of local products, including brightly coloured handicrafts and fresh tea.

    Next, head to the northern edge of the town to Hoang A Tuong’s palace, otherwise known as the outlandish Vua Meo. Constructed by the French in 1921 in an unusual ‘oriental baroque’ style, it resembles a hybrid between an exotic church and a French chateau, and was used to entertain the Flower H’mong chief Hoang A Tuong.

    Afterwards, head to Trung Do Village, home to the Tay ethnic minority group, and wander around this rustic yet charming hamlet. Settle down for a tasty lunch prepared by a local Tay family and get a glimpse of village life. Then, enjoy breath-taking views as you take a boat trip down the Chay River before heading back to Sapa Town.
