This tour visited both Sapa and Bac Ha Market. Sapa was nice with trekked Cat Cat village and visit some village of minority people. And Bac Ha market was amazing also, The traditional dress of the Flower Hmong women is truly a vibrant experience of color and flare. On a sunny Sunday, you will have an amazing opportunity to see how these people dress, craft, sell, trade, and live.
