Bac Ha Market is situated in Bac Ha District, Lao Cai Province, about 75km or 2 hours driving from Lao Cai Railway Station.

Bac Ha is famous for its market that is open right in the Bac Ha town. It is not only a trading centre but also a meeting place for couples, friends, and relatives every Sunday.

The market is very crowded, local productsfor sale or barter are carried on horseback. There is a brisk trade at the market for everything from hand-embroidered skirts to all manner of 4-legged animals, including water buffaloes, horses, pigs, dogs and cows.

This Sunday market attracts throngs of villagers from the surrounding hill tribes. Some walk several hours for the weekly opportunity to trade and barter food, animals, clothes and household goods.

Most of the locals ignored tourists and focused on the task at hand: buying, selling, and trading goods, as there’s much to accomplish in this once-a-week opportunity.
