The Dong Van Highlands is a captivating region where you can meet people from the ethnic groups that have settled on the limestone plateau in the karst mountains of Ha Giang province. From discovering the colorful clothing of the Lolo to weaving hemp with the Blue Hmong, you will have the opportunity to share the daily life of these Sino-Vietnamese communities.
The best way to admire this mosaic of cultures in Ha Giang province is to visit the area's traditional markets. As you walk among the stalls, you can observe the customs of each ethnic group and find delightful treasures at the colorful stands where artisanal jewelry and medicinal plants are sold. At Khau Vai's famous Love Market, curious travelers can enjoy the traditional songs of young people who are about to get married.
Another worthy experience in Vietnam is traveling down the Happiness Road to Ma Pi Leng Pass. This journey offers an impressive view of the mountains, houses on stilts and hemp fields. Green expanses stretch as far as the eye can see, punctuated by the colors of the traditional outfits of the inhabitants of the plateau.See more
