Weekly trip
Traditional markets

The meeting place of ethnic minorities
In Vietnam cultural life, a market is meeting place, not simply a trading place. This concept has always remained deeply in Vietnamese community. In childhood, there is not a child who doesn’t want his or her mother to take them to the market. Why? If one lived in the remote area and you have to work hard in the fields or somewhere else to make a living. People have socially few opportunities to meet friends, relatives or neighborhood. Without a market meeting, life can be quite boring. With general consensus, communities choose to hold markets on specific days depending on when it’s most convenient for people to attend markets for many more reasons than for shopping; for example people want to meet each other, they feel a need to belong to a community, and also they may whish to share their dress sense with the others.
Often people make a great deal effort to travel long distance over many hills and valleys even if they crossed land borders just to get their market or meeting places. There are always lots of excitement and joy associated with the market environment. Let’s come and share these people excitement on one of our trips.
You can see Black H’Mong, Red Dzao or Day minorities in the Sapa market. Let’s enjoy the differences of the minorities in the other markets, which you cannot see it in Sapa, where you won’t meet another tourist group.
So we specially offer markets tours on:
Every Tuesday: Coc Ly market
Every Thursday: Muong Khuong market
Every Saturday: Can Cau market
Every Sunday: Muong Khuong market
                         Muong Hum market
                         Bac Ha market
                         Binh Lu and Tam Duong market
For all the market trips, we will leave Sapa for the markets early in the morning about 6.30am by Jeep or minivan with the group of 10 people. It takes three hours to get there. In the market you will be free to take the market tour, to explore the lifestyle of ethnic minority group who gather in the market for shopping and chatting. In each market you will meet a lot of different group of minority who travel in many different areas and even they crossed the land border simply to get to the market.

Our recommendation:
Bac Ha market is long famous for ages so there is a lot visitor travel to this market on Sunday. It’s fat place for thieves and pickpocket working. Moreover, Bac ha is no longer regarded ass a fresh clean place because of overcrowded amount of tourists on every Sunday.

Day 1:Sapa – Catcat village – Rainforest Jungle Camp
Early departure from the hotel, the Black H’mong porters pick our baggage and start ahead, along with the cook. From our altitude of 1,500m, we pass through the market place and leave Sapa, heading for the valley floor. After a short while we pass the H’mong village of Cat cat. In the bottom of the village we cross the Linh Ho River, carefully keep our balance on the fragile bamboo bridge. We start the long climbing upward in the late day we reach the rainforest. Before nightfall, we pick a spot in the jungle and put up our camp at elevation of 2.200m. It is overnight camping.

Day 2:We start out slowly with a short descent before we trek up hill again. At around 2,900m the rainforest gradually gives way to huge stand, succulent bamboo. We reach a ridge at 2,900m. And now, we have a long view down to Sapa valley, over the area we just passed, to the mountain range far sides. After an early breakfast we set out for the final ascent. A few steep stretches must be passed, but nothing is insurmountable, and at lunchtime we reach the point elevation of 3,143m. This is highest peak in Indochina and on a clear day we have fantastic North view to China as well as to the North of Laos and Dien Bien Phu between mountainous areas. It’s high time for us to take a long break before we return to our campsite at 2,200m, overnight camping.

Day 3: Campsite – Sapa: We enjoy our morning coffee and the sound of nature, while the porters take down the camps and tents and move swiftly ahead down the mountain, trekking down forward to Sapa town.
