Xin Man - Ha Giang


 

 

Xin Man District, one of ten districts in Ha Giang, is a small, tranquil place near the Chinese border. It has much to offer tourists, particularly its Sunday market where a wide range of local fruit specialties, such as plum, peach, wild banana and corn, are available at very cheap prices. 

Hidden in the mountains about 140 kilometers from Ha Giang Town, the capital of Ha Giang Province, or 75km from Bac Ha District in Lao Cai Province, Xin Man is considered one of the most beautiful place in the northernmost area of Vietnam. Far from the noisy town and a little bit difficult to reach because of the bumpy and muddy road, the district is not well-known to mass tourism, but it is worth the effort to get there. 

The route from Ha Giang to Xin Man is through beautiful scenery of rice paddies on the mountain sides, affording a rare opportunity to enjoy the picturesque landscape of the mountains and discover the diverse, traditional customs of ethnic minority people who live here. 

The name of each ethnic minority group is derived from the appearance of their traditional costumes and this area is mainly populated by Mong Hoa people, including Mong Hoa (Flower H'mong), Mong Den (Black H'mong), Nung, Tay and Dao. 

The Sunday market in Xin Man is filled with hill-tribe traders from surrounding villages. The market consists of several narrow alleys lined with wooden stalls offering basic sundries, but its flavor is other-worldly, with all the participants adorned in magnificent costumes.
