Ha Giang

Nestled up in the north by the Chinese border, the mountainous province of Ha Giang is home to some of Vietnam’s most mind-bending vistas. The region offers a mixture of iconic rice terraces and imposing limestone peaks, steep winding roads and colourful ethnic markets – and because of Ha Giang’s remote location, you’ll have all this raw beauty mostly to yourself.

There’s nothing quite like exploring Ha Giang on a motorbike, especially the blood-curdling but unmissable Ma Pi Leng Pass, so consider making a loop from the provincial capital through Dong Van and Meo Vac if you’re a confident rider. Hiking and camping opportunities are also abundant, a typical tour lasting up to four days and taking the awe-struck trekker along dizzying mountainside paths and on to ethnic minority villages.

With a range of diverse cultures and their eye-catching, multi-coloured clothing, the local communities add to the immense charm of the region. All in all, Ha Giang is an irresistible package for nature-lovers and thrill-seekers, an off-the-beaten-track gem.
