After an early flight from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi, Ms. Ngo Thi Kim Hoan (HCMC) continued to travel by car to Ha Giang.

On October 25, arriving at the buckwheat flower hill in the territory of San Tro village (Lung Cu commune, Dong Van district, Ha Giang), Hoan seemed to forget all her fatigue after a journey of thousands of kilometers.

Ms. Hoan said that in the past, she had only seen buckwheat flowers through articles and social networks. She is very curious about the intense vitality of these tiny flowers on this rocky plateau.

As soon as she heard the news that buckwheat flowers began to bloom, she and 10 of her friends booked a tour to Ha Giang.

When seeing the pink flowers in the middle of the mountains with their own eyes, the Southern woman can’t stop exclaiming with joy. “Too beautiful. Much more beautiful than what I saw in the picture,” said Ms. Kim Hoan.

Quynh Trang couldn’t help but be surprised by the beauty of the flower beds. (Photo: PH H).

“The general check-in price for each flower field is 10,000 VND. The weather in Ha Giang in the past few days has been very nice, so we had good photos,” said Ms. Trang.

The general ticket price for each point of buckwheat flower photography is 10,000 VND. (Photo: PH H).

Also according to a female tourist from Hanoi, buckwheat flowers are most concentrated in two districts of Dong Van and Meo Vac. There are flower fields that are only thirty or forty square meters wide, but there are also places where flowers are planted on a hill or under wide valleys. The general “ticket” level for garden owners is 10,000 VND regardless of how big or small the flower field is.

Everyone wants to keep the best pictures with the typical flowers of Ha Giang. (Photo: PH H)

According to the observations of PV Dan Tri , the Hanh Phuc road in recent days is much busier when there are consecutive trips of tourist cars, personal cars, and motorbikes in groups to Ha Giang.

The flower hills along the Hanh Phuc street have begun to welcome guests. (Photo: PH H).

Buckwheat flowers are planted along this road and at attractions and community tourism villages to serve tourists. Throughout the flower hills and flower valleys in the four districts of Quan Ba, Yen Minh, Dong Van and Meo Vac, flowers have bloomed and are very beautiful.

Ms. Vu Thi My (Lung Tao village, Dong Van district) said that her family grows flowers to make cakes in combination with serving tourists. The fee for each visitor to the garden to take pictures is 10,000 VND. Customers taking pictures of flowers are crowded these days.

“A few years ago, during the peak months, I earned about 500,000 VND per day on average, 1 million VND per day. Hopefully, this year more people will come here. Buckwheat flowers have helped my family have a more income,” said Ms.

Buckwheat flowers are white, pinkish. (Photo: PH H).

To serve the needs of tourists, Ha Giang people often grow crops. Therefore, although the life cycle is only about 2 months, buckwheat is still blooming all over the rocky plateau from October to about 1 or 2 of next year (the time of the Lunar New Year).

The weather in Ha Giang in the past few days is very beautiful, so visitors can get many satisfactory pictures. (Photo: N. D. T).

Buckwheat flowers are white, pinkish. Especially, when the weather is cold, the flowers are more colorful and beautiful. If you want to admire the beauty of the “flowers on the rock”, visitors can come to Ha Giang at these times of the year.

The colder the weather, the deeper and more beautiful the buckwheat flowers are. (Photo: N. D. T)

Talking to Dan Tri, Mr. Dang Quoc Su, Director of Ha Giang Tourism Promotion Center said that buckwheat flowers are the most unique product of tourism in this highland province.

From mid-October, Ha Giang welcomed the first groups of tourists to visit famous beautiful flower valleys such as Lung Tao village, Lung Cam cultural village, Pa Vi ethnic culture village…

Ha Giang Loop – North Vietnam

Almost unknown until a few years ago, this route is gradually winning the hearts of a small, but growing, number of travelers. Those who make the 300km journey from Hanoi are well rewarded with one of the country’s best road trips.

In this article, we will cover:

What to expect

How to prepare

A day-by-day itinerary to help you make the most of the journey

The Experience

Ha Giang’s landscape. Photo: Gavin White

The most common way to see the loop is by motorcycle, but, of course, bikes aren’t for everyone. If you prefer four wheels instead of two, you can easily swap the bike for a taxi or a guided car tour.

Unlike the more popular tourist destinations, Ha Giang strikes a perfect balance between rustic charm and modern facilities.

On the one hand, guest houses are plentiful and well-kept, many menus are in English, and somehow the WiFi is blazing fast. On the other, colorful local cultures and rustic traditions continue as a part of everyday life.

What to Expect & How to Prepare

This is what you need to watch out for while riding your motorbike:

Road surfaces are poorly maintained. Be prepared to tackle potholes and gravel at any moment.

“He who dares wins” seems to be many locals’ approach to driving. Expect them to overtake you.

Staying on the right side of the road is more of a guideline than a hard rule.

If you haven’t ridden a motorcycle before, driving here might be difficult, so it’s recommended that you get some practice time in before you start. If you are nervous, here is everything you need to know about riding safely in Vietnam.

Renting a bike: Rentals are available in Hanoi and Ha Giang and range in both price and size. The majority of tourists choose the 110cc motorbike for its low weight and simple operation. You can also buy a motorbike if you are staying longer.

Region & Geography

As the name suggests, the Ha Giang Loop starts and ends in Ha Giang, the province’s capital. The route is approximately 300 km and rises from 100 m (33 ft) altitude up to 1500 m (4900 ft).

Home to the Dong Van UNESCO Geopark and the Dong Van Karst Plateau, Ha Giang Province boasts some of Vietnam’s most impressive scenery. Limestone mountains dominate the skyline, and turquoise rivers flow through vast, seemingly endless gorges. Layer upon layer of terraced fields cultivates the impossibly steep hillsides, laying delicate man-made decorations on the immense natural landscape.

It is also one of the country’s most culturally diverse regions, with seventeen distinct ethnic groups. Any budding anthropologists will have the chance to test their knowledge, identifying different groups by their traditional attire.

Ha Giang, Vietnam. Photo: Water Alternatives Photos

Each group keeps its own customs and holiday, making for dozens, if not hundreds, of events throughout the year. If you take the time to wander through the towns and villages, there is a high chance of seeing a small celebration or ritual in action.

Unfortunately, like so many places that still hold a rich cultural heritage, Ha Giang remains one of Vietnam’s poorest regions. Nevertheless, the lack of wealth should not be misinterpreted. “Humble” means colorful, not hopeless, and “undeveloped” means authentic, not backward!

Time of year to visit

The best times of year are October – November, and March – April.

The dry season is from October – April

The rainy season runs from May – September

Generally speaking, the dry season is cooler, and the rainy season is hotter

The coldest months are from December – February, with a minimum temperature of 48°F (9°C)

It’s hottest from July – September, with a maximum temperature of 85°F (30°C)

How to get there from Hanoi.

If you’re doing the Loop with a tour company, the trip will probably include a transfer from Hanoi. If you’re traveling independently, then these are your options:

By motorcycle: 300km in Vietnam takes a lot longer than you might expect, so allot about 7-10 hours.

Bus: There are regular bus services from Hanoi to Ha Giang town, which take around 8 hours.

Four Day Itinerary

Crossing the Chay River, Ha Giang. Photo: Peter Garnhum

Day 1: Ha Giang to Yen Minh – 110 km

Ha Giang serves as a hub for anyone traveling further north into the Dong Van Karst Plateau. Many travelers stop here for the night after the long journey from Hanoi and take the opportunity to switch from a bus to a motorcycle or car for the next leg of the trip.

If you’re accustomed to the bustle of Hanoi, arriving in Ha Giang will feel like stepping into another world! Despite being the provincial capital, it’s a hamlet compared to the city. The pace of life is far slower, and it’s surrounded by mountains on all sides, with the Song Lo River flowing through its center.

Yen Minh is a highland border district in Ha Giang province. Photo:

This first stretch of road is also home to one of the Loop’s most challenging sections: The Bac Sum Pass. This unbelievably steep and twisty road winds up and up into the mountains and will require a rider’s complete concentration. Of course, that means there won’t be much opportunity for eyeballing the scenery from the saddle.

Thankfully, the hairpin bends provide multiple vantage points on which to stop and take in the valley’s spectacular sights.

Tip: Confident riders will love Bac Sum. But, it will be a challenge if you’re new to motorcycles. If you’re a beginner, it’s definitely worth taking the time to practice your skills in Ha Giang before setting off.

After the Bac Sum Pass, you can stop for a proper breather at Heaven’s Gate. It’s a stunning viewpoint overlooking a valley floor that’s crisscrossed with a labyrinth of beautifully misshapen terraced fields. But the most striking features are the hills. They rise abruptly out of the valley floor, their conical shape resembling huge molehills or the pyramid of sand in an hourglass.

At the viewpoint, there’s a café geared towards tourists where you can grab some lunch. Alternatively, try venturing down into the village below for something a little more rustic. There are few tourist facilities, but anyone who likes to get up close and personal to the local way of life will enjoy the more authentic surroundings.

Once you’ve refueled and maybe pepped up on a couple of the delicious Vietnamese coffees, it’s time to hit the road towards Yen Minh, the stop for the night. After a few miles, the route rejoins the Song Lo near the riverbank before the road snakes back up into the hills.

If you’re staying in Yen Minh, don’t expect a wealth of food and accommodation options. But, after the day’s ride, the chances are that you’ll be tired enough for anything that’s on offer to feel like luxury!

Day 2: Yen Minh to Lung Cu (Chinese Border) – 60 km

Today is a shorter route but plan time for some sightseeing along the way. There is one place that absolutely should not be missed: a former palace built for the Hmong tribe’s most powerful family.

Located about 30 km away, in Xa Phin, the palace is set in the heart of a pine forest. Stone steps lead up to the entrance and are situated between large pillars, each decorated with ornate carvings of dragons and phoenixes. Overall the palace covers 64 rooms, all constructed from stone, wood, and terracotta.

Lung Cu. Photo: Nguyễn Ngọc Ánh

This secluded citadel is considered one of the Dong Van Karst Plateau’s great architectural masterpieces. The wood carving, in particular, is unbelievably intricate, and you can picture dozens of artisans pouring their time and skills into creating it over 100 years ago.

Once you’ve filled your cultural boots, it’s time to hit the highway out towards Lung Cu, which will be the second stop for the night. A small town on China’s doorstep, Lung Cu is famous for its colossal flag tower and 360-degree views.

A slab-like, concrete pillar, it is certainly an imposing structure jutting into the sky. Make sure to reach the top though as it offers incredible, panoramic views of the surrounding area.

Looking north, you can see deep into China’s territory, meanwhile, if you look south, you can view the Don Van Karst Plateau. As a vantage point, it’s impossible to beat, and it gives you a chance to appreciate the region’s natural geography as a whole. If you’re able to stay for sunset, the golden light rippling over the sea of sharp peaks and valleys will make for a spectacular finale to the day!

Plenty of accommodations can be found in the town nearby, although you shouldn’t expect luxury. Some buildings are modern, and some are old-style wooden houses on stilts. Whatever the style, proprietors clearly take pride in their businesses. They are keen to ensure their guests experience the very best of Vietnamese hospitality.

Day 3: Lung Cu to Meo Vac (via Dong Van) – 100 km

At 100 km, you’re in for another long day of riding, but it might just be the best day of the trip! Leaving Lung Cu, it’s a scenic ride down to Dong Van. Be sure to hit the road reasonably early so that there’s plenty of time to really enjoy your journey.

Dong Van is a mini tourist hub, and pretty much everything you could want is available. If, after a few days in the sticks, you fancy something a little more Western for lunch, then you can find it here. Or, you might have run out of some essentials and need to stock up. Either way, plan to stop off in Dong Van for about an hour.

If possible, try to be there on market day as it has become somewhat of a tourist attraction, although foreign faces will still be in the minority! It’s a bustling, chaotic hive of activity, a real living and breathing embodiment of rural Vietnamese life. Brightly colored fabrics are piled high next to stalls selling local snacks, and farm livestock are for sale alongside noodles and fruits.

Mèo Vạc. Photo: Nicolas Weydert

The market is arranged on a local calendar and is, therefore, on a different day each week. Before starting your trip, you can phone one of Dong Van’s guesthouses to find out the date and arrange your trip accordingly. It’s worth the effort!

Day 4: Meo Vac to Ha Giang – 150 km

We have reached the final day, the last leg back to Ha Giang, and the longest stretch. In total, it takes about seven hours of riding, so you will need to set off reasonably early, and don’t be fooled into thinking that after the Ma Pi Leng Pass, it’s just a boring ride home!

In total, the altitude drops by 1400 m between Meo Vac and Ha Giang, and the winding descent back into the valleys make for an exhilarating ride. As the road flattens out in the valley, it rejoins the river.

Similar to the first day, it road moves along the riverbanks, and the gently winding route makes for a generally relaxing journey. Just be aware that a few sections are very poorly paved so, if there are two of you on a bike, the passenger might get a bit of shaking!

Approaching Ha Giang, there aren’t many places to stop and eat and after the long journey in the morning, you will definitely need some food! Before the final stretch, you can stop for lunch at Bac Me, a little town at a river crossing, where there are food stalls and small cafes that can provide you with the fuel for this final leg home!

Final thoughts

For such a short journey, the Ha Giang Loop packs in a lot of action! Traveling from lowlands to mountains, then back down through the valleys, the loop is a journey of exploration. The culture is as much a part of the journey as the natural landscape and traveling through the towns that Ha Giang’s people call home is a rare insight into their lives and customs.

While many tourists will never see this side of Vietnam, your four days on the Ha Giang Loop will give you an unmissable opportunity to see and feel what life is really like in these beautiful mountains.

Saigon Street Food Guides: Foods Cost You Less Than $1 And Where To Find Them

Unlike Hanoi, where the local cuisine (read my guide about Hanoi food here) is oriented around traditional foods from complicated recipes, Saigon is better known for its simple street food, which is made up of a combination of the best dishes from 3 regions,  leading to it being called  the “Heaven of Vietnamese street food” by CNN. The perks of enjoying the Saigon street food lie not only in satisfying your stomach, but also offers you the chance to discover hidden gems while exploring small alleyways or big streets. As a local I am big sucker for street foods, and this is my street food guide, revealing some very nice dishes (with prices are lower than $1) and where they can be found.

Bánh tráng trộn (Rice paper salad)

This affordable dish is made from a few simple ingredients, including sliced rice paper, dried shrimp, sliced mango, quail eggs, peanuts and herbs all stirred together. The combination of ingredients in the rice paper salad brings your pallet a wonderful mix of sour, salty and spicy flavours, resulting in an explosive taste in your mouth. It’s not recommended by a nutritionist because of low nutrition, but this dish is the first thing that comes to mind if you ask the Saigonese what their go to street food is, especially favored by students.

Price: 10,000-20,000vnd/servingPlaces to eat:

Nguyen Thuong Hien street (District 3): This street is rice paper salad market as it sold in almost vendors.

Saigon Notre-Dame Basilica or Turtle Lake (District 1) area: while visiting these attractions, don’t forget to stop by any vendor to give this tasty meal a try.

Súp cua (Crab soup)

This snack is frequently enjoyed by almost everyone in Saigon, thanks to its high nutrition and stomach friendliness. Crab soup is made of crab, chicken, quail eggs, mushroom, sweetcorn, herbs, adding some soy sauce and chili to spice up the flavour. It’s best to be eaten on a cool, windy or rainy afternoon.

Price: 10,000 – 20,000vnd/bowlPlaces to eat:

Unnamed street vendor, 84 Nguyen Du (District 1), near Notre-Dame Basilica: Crab soup has been sold here for over 20 years, making it the most well-known crab soup street vendor in Saigon to date. It opens from 12-22pm..

Hanh crab soup, Tan Dinh market (Nguyen Huu Cau District 1): the vendor opens from 6am to 6pm or until sold out.

Xoài lắc (Mango shake)

This drink has only recently been invented due to its unorthodox mix of ingredients, but this tempting snack has taken the young Saigonese by storm, making it a very popular drink among students. The recipe combines mango, sugar, fish sauce and chilli salt together in one cup, before being shaken by the vendor to provide a delicious cocktail, hence its name, a mango shake.  The taste of mango shake will confuse you taste buds, but I find the sour and sweet of the mango complements the salty and spiciness of the chilli powder which when mixed up all together, make quite addictive drink for a snack lover (like myself).

A dish of fried flour usually consists of pieces of deep fried rice flour cake, mixed with fried eggs, topped with pickles, sliced papaya, green onion and eaten with fish sauce. In order to find true authentic fried flour, you must visit a shop run by a Chinese family.

Knocking noodle is a term, referring to a popular selling method of noodles that is used in Saigon. The noodles are usually sold on bikes or tuk tuks, moving one place another to serve customers instead of having a fixed store. Sellers usually use two wooden bars, knocking together to make noise to grab people’s attention, so called the knocking noodle. Customers usually buy and eat right next to the vendor or take away. A typical bowl of knocking noodle will have white noodle, thin sliced lean pork, fried onion, bean sprouts, chives and crackling. This dish is not sold in the morning, but from afternoon til midnight and a highlight of Saigon cuisine since it’s delicious yet the price is very affordable, a very popular dish among the working class and students.

Chuoi nuong Nam Bo Ut Lua (115 Phan Dang Luu, Phu Nhuan, District 1): recognized as the best grilled banana by Street Food Festival 2013 in Singapore, this vendor is famous among both locals and travelers. The street vendors opens from 9am to 10pm, however, it’s quite far from city centre.

Che chuoi nuong (230 Ly Chinh Thang, District 3): this place is also a little distance from the centre, so I usually visit here whenever I crave a decent grilled banana but too lazy to go Phu Nhuan district.

Bắp xào (Stir fried corn)

For students and young people on the go, stir-fried sweet corn is a tasty quick snack which can keep you full until dinner time. This is a perfect alternative to other popular street food such as broken rice or bread. The corn offers similar levels of energy as other street food dishes, whilst also offering variation for your taste buds, to satisfy your foodie needs! Each vendor has their own unique recipe to make their dish stand out. A typical serving will have corn (lots of corn) stir fried with butter, with some dried shrimp and shrimp paste to spice it up, topped with chilli sauce and green onion. This infusion of different ingredients takes your tongue on a journey from sweet, to spicy and salty. If you ask me what is the perfect snack for a late afternoon, which everyone can enjoy, this is definitely the first thing that comes to mind.

Price: 10,000 – 20,000 vnd/ depending on serving sizePlaces to eat:

Gia Dinh park, Le Van Tam park: parks are always known as street food zones for Saigonese. Stir fried corn (and other street food) can be found in abundance here with affordable price. With less than $5, you can buy  3-4 servings of street food and indulge yourself throughout the afternoon.

Ho Con Rua (turtle lake): stir fried corn is sold on a small bike but the street stall is noticeable as there’re always plenty of customers surrounding it. Specifically, the bikes usually linger opposite to Ho Chi Minh city University of Economic’s front gate. Just ask any locals for direction as this street stall is very popular in the area. Due to the high number customers, the vendor doesn’t cook the dish when ordered, as many other vendors do. Instead, she precooks her corn at home and stores it in a big saucepan to keep the food warm all the time, so you can expect have your food in 30 seconds or less.

Bottom Line:If you’re afraid of street food hygiene or still confused with the location pointed out above, it’s better to accompany yourself with a local friend on your journey exploring Saigon street food. A local can bring you to the best street food alleyway, suggest you some yummy food with “sell-to-local” prices and tell you some insightful stories about the food culture in Saigon. Ho Chi Minh City food experience by Inspitrip offers a number of personalised journeys, depending on local insider’s suggestions and your travel preferences to give you an insight into what its like to eat like the Saigonese. So make sure you don’t miss the chance to immerse yourself in the biggest street food city in Vietnam.

The Ha Giang Loop: A Four

This four-day route follows the QL4C northeast from Hà Giang to Bảo Lâm, and the QL34 southwest from Bảo Lâm back to Hà Giang. Day 1: Ha Giang City to Yen Minh


Get an early breakfast in Hà Giang city before hitting the road. As you head north on the QL4C, the landscape quickly transforms into a limestone mountain range, covered with lush jungle. Soon you’ll reach the Dong Van Karst Plateau, a UNESCO Global Geopark. The highlight of this section of the trip is Heaven’s Gate Pass, where you’ll get your first taste of exhilarating views along with challenging, tight curves.

Cruising down from Heaven’s Gate Pass, you’ll arrive in Tam Sơn — a town surrounded by jutting, forested hills — just in time for lunch. Here the restaurants and road stalls serve classic Northern Vietnamese fare. And like anywhere else in the country, a great Vietnamese coffee is not hard to find.


Once you’re refuelled, continue on the QL4C towards Yên Minh. The road follows the beautiful Mien River before climbing through a tall canyon. Cruise though karst plateaus and mountain passes before arriving at Yên Minh, where you can settle in at a local hotel for the evening.

TIP: It’s best to reserve your hotel or homestay ahead of time when staying in smaller towns: the best accommodations fill up quickly, especially during high season.

Day 2: The Vietnamese Border



A three-hour detour takes you to the Lũng Cú Flag Tower. The 360-degree views over the border into China are worth the effort. Back on the QL4C, you’ll have no shortage of stunning views on the way to Đồng Văn, where you’ll stay. Set aside time to visit a local market, either at night or in the early morning, and see the colourful ethnic minorities going about their business.

TIP: Be sure to check with your host in Dong Van about dates and times for the local markets. It’s a cultural experience you won’t want to miss.

Day 3: Đồng Văn and Mã Pí Lèng Passes


Today you’ll encounter what is arguably the most mind-blowing stretch of road in all of Vietnam. From Đồng Văn all the way to Mã Pí Lèng Pass, the valley floor drops far below as you wind your way through massive peaks and canyons. The only problem may be the number of stops you feel compelled to make, as every turn is full of picture-perfect views.

Mèo Vạc is only 24 kilometres from Đồng Văn, but it will take most of your morning to reach it, if you stop to appreciate the panoramic views along the way. Once there, enjoy this quaint town, which has colourful character and more than a few options for lunch.


For a quick detour, take a left off of QL4C at the bottom of Mã Pí Lèng Pass onto side road 193A. It’s a short but fun ride offering a closer look at the winding Nho Quế River below.

You’ll finish the day in Bảo Lâm, a small hamlet with wonderfully warm locals. Spend a few hours relaxing in this remote setting, readying yourself for the drive back to Hà Giang in the morning.

Day 4: Back to Hà Giang City


Start the last day of your trip with a simple breakfast and stock up on provisions to make the journey back to Ha Giang. From Bảo Lâm, take QL34 southwest towards Hà Giang. The road follows the Gâm River most of the time, making for an enjoyable drive along the valley floor. There will still be plenty of twists and a few passes but nothing as strenuous as before.

Stop in Bắc Mê for bite at one of the local food stalls. You’ll find fewer towns in the last stretch before reaching the city.


Arrive back in Hà Giang City and treat yourself to some modern comforts after all the miles travelled over the last four days.

Practical Tips

What to Expect

You’ll be travelling through the northernmost part of Vietnam, and there are limited resources once outside of Ha Giang. Be sure to bring enough cash, as ATMs are scarce.

How to Get There

Daytime and overnight buses depart from My Dinh bus station in Hanoi for Ha Giang regularly. Private transfers and tours can also be found online or through tour companies in the capital.


You can easily find motorbikes for rent in Hà Giang City. Both Honda and Kawasaki Service Centres are available in town.
