It’s a really convenient place to discover the surrounds, and basing your self right here rather than Sapa will knock off about three hours of journey time each way on a day trip to most of the local weekly markets. And, at lower than half the altitude of Sapa, the climate right here is more likely to be more clement in winter months, with a mean year-round temperature of 19 levels Celsius (four levels, on average, warmer).

However don’t count on any pizzas or breathtaking mountain views. Bac Ha remains to be, at first, an area market city, and the tourist trade is just being added on, wherever it matches in. That is in fact a part of the attraction — though count on to still be bothered by H’mong hawkers.
