Bac Ha Market (Cho Bac Ha)

Free admission
Lao Cai, Vietnam

Practical Info

The market opens at sunrise and breaks down around 2 p.m. If you’ve already made it to Bac Ha (usually via the train or bus stations in Lao Cai some 47 miles away), then its an easy enough amble to market by foot. Day trips also depart Sapa early for the nearly three-hour trip to Bac Ha on market days returning later in the afternoon. For the true market lover, weekend-long organized shopping sprees, often including village treks or stays, visit the smaller Saturday Can Cau Market 12 miles north of Bac Ha first before visiting Bac Ha Market on Sunday.
