27/11/2019 310 Views
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.

1. What to see in Khau Vai Love Market ?

Khau Vai Love Market was first opened 100 years ago on a small hill in Khau Vai Commune, Meo Vac District, Ha Giang province by the locals of Mong ethnic minority. It is 200 meters far from the city. On this day, people from surrounding gather together to make friends with others, even those who have got married, without jealousy from their mates. It is great to see people in traditional costumes happily going through a lot of mountains to come there and have sharing moments with even strange peoples. It is considered as a specific gift for the hard-working days in a year.
