As the name refers, Khau Vai is not really a trading market but a love market that is open once a year on March 23 in the lunar calendar. When the land is covered with rocks and flowers, it is much more lively on this day.
A tour to Ha Giang province is very attractive with many different activities. Not only the huge landscape of mountains and forests in Quan Ba Ha Giang, winding passes together with flowers blossoming around the year, it is also friendly people and traditional culture that make the land worth visiting once in a lifetime.
