Pha Long market
Very rural seldom visited market, where you can meet ethnic groups that are only found in this particular district of Vietnam, mostly Hmong, Nung, Tou Zi, Pa Zi and Tou Lao. Along the road, in a landscape of mountain peaks, numerous Nung et Hmong villages. Lots of traditional houses with baked earth tiled roofs.
Sapa, Red Dzao women in the market
Sapa is also famous for its love market, which takes place on saturday evenings. The love market of Sapa used to be the place to find a partner to get married. With the development of tourism, the real love market does not take place anymore.
Sapa, traditional saturday market
I was told the saturday market in Sapa was just a tourist attraction. I expected to find more foreigners than locals. But to my surprise, this was not the case. Of course there are tourists in the local markets, but most of the people I found were locals wearing their traditional clothes.
Sapa, Black Hmong mother
One of the largest ethnic minorities in Vietnam is the Hmong Tribe. Hmong originally means "free people". They came from China, and now live in different regions throughout Vietnam.
Sapa, Red Dzao girls
Although you need to do a trekking to the mountains to see the "real Life" of the ethnic minorities, you can see people belonging to many tribes in the streets of Sapa.
