Video from Bac Ha
The town of Bac Ha wouldn't be high up on a list of places to see if it weren't for the Sunday morning market. But on Sunday morning hill tribe people from around the area begin pouring into the town from every direction, dressed in their extraordinarily colorful clothing.
This market is a real site to behold.
The people come to sell and trade goods, from nuts, vegetables, and meat, to livestock and clothing.
If you've missed breakfast, you can even sit down for a meal.
The Flower H'mong outfits are not only beautiful, but also very inexpensive.
You'll see men buying raw tobacco, and testing it in bamboo water pipes.
The Sunday morning market in Bac Ha is well worth the journey.
