Swipe through to see what the Bac Ha Market in Vietnam looks like. It’s on every Sunday.

You can get a bus from Sapa to Lao Cai (40,000 VND) then get on another bus from Lao Cai to Bac Ha (90,000 VND). It’s very easy to do and when I’m back home I’ll write up a blog post for everyone with how to do it.

Please stay for atleast 2 nights in Bac Ha. And attend the market between 6am to 8am. After 8am it gets so hectic with bus loads of tourists coming and being disrespectful with their cameras. Don’t be one of them please.

I asked each lady If I could take the portrait pictures. Some shook their head and I full honoured that and respected it and I put my hand over my heart with a warm smile and nodded and I moved on and did not take the picture.

Unfortunately, one of them said no to me and I walked away and saw a tourist sticking their camera in her face :( It was awful to see :(

The lady in the first picture took 3 minutes organising her outfit before she said she was ready to take the photo lol. She sold traditional medicine.

Taking photos of people is not really my thing, I feel uncomfortable doing it and much prefer scenery and animals.

I also had to tell a middle aged white man not to take photos of a 3 year old boy sitting in his home. Please do not take photos of children. They are not old enough to give consent and it’s just wrong.

I highly recommend staying 2 nights in Bac Ha. It’s easy to get to and the sights you’ll see will be amazing!

Bac Ha also has this interesting Palace called Hoang A Tuong Palace.

It was owned by Emperor Hoang Yen Tchao of the Tay ethnic minority and was built in 1914.

It’s actually quite interesting inside. Beautiful architecture and lots of butterflies around 🥰
