After meeting a guide at the Lao Cai railway station we have breakfast there and go to the Bac Ha Market for two hours by a van. This is the largest market in the region, a place where many ethnic groups gather to buy and sell, eat and drink together. There are 10 minority groups in the Bac Ha region. We can buy homemade handicrafts and clothes.

At 10 am we leave the hotel and start trekking.

They have their own language and wear traditional indigo blue clothing. After this you continue to Ta Van Village (1.200 m) to visit Zay people. Zay is a fairly small minority group of about 38.000 people who live mainly in the mountains in Northwest Vietnam. The development has meant that some of their old customs have been lost but many women still wear traditional shirts with a purple, blue or green color.

We stay overnight with a local family in Ta Van and have our dinner here.

Hi Nancy, We are back from a great Vietnam trip and loved every part of it.
I would like to thank you specially for organizing the tour so well and keeping us informed at every point.
The tour guide we had in each place were very friendly and knowledgeable.
Such a great tour would not have been possible without your hard-work and dedication.
I would definitely refer your organization to all my friends who want to visit Vietnam.
Thanks a lot again :)

Hi Giang, Thank you for touching base!
I'd love to give some feedback on the tour. Firstly, you have been absolutely extremely accommodating and very very helpful in this entire process start to finish! We will most definitely recommend you to our friends. We loved Sapa, though it was rainy and foggy it was a really lovely place...
In saying that, the Halong Bay tour was the best part of our trip so far! The boat upgrade was an absolute plus so thank you so much! The staff on the boat, Tom the tour guide, Quaong the Manager, the chef and the wait staff were absolutely phenomenal! The accommodations...
So thank you so much for an amazingly planned trip!
Best regrds,
