COC LY MARKET (Tuesday)

Located next to the romantic Chay River, Coc Ly market has a vibrant and bustling rhythm, imbued with the atmosphere of a high market. The name Coc Ly still means Goc Man, this place is still quite wild and not much affected by tourism.


MORNING:
07:00: Car and guide pick you up at the hotel or at the train station to depart for Bac Ha to witness firsthand the architecture of the not-too-big but unique market, Coc Ly Market. Coc Ly Market is like a picture of vibrant life and breathtaking poetic beauty: the Mekong River flows slowly, surrounded by Northwest mountains and forests, momentarily covered by a light veil of jade. Each person of the Tay, Nung, Dao, or Mong ethnic groups in traditional costumes with patterns and slave motifs flocked to the market. Although Coc Ly market is an ethnic market, it is divided quite specifically into separate trading areas. Mountain forest products will focus on one area, and household appliances, or jewelry on a separate area. The most prominent is still the poultry and poultry farming area. The atmosphere in this area is quite hot and crowded. The special thing when participating in this market that visitors should not miss is the vibrant food court. Steam rising from the dishes along with whispers of conversation, the sound of bowls and chopsticks colliding… extremely bustling and crowded.

10:00: Arrive at the Market, you automatically shop and learn about the unique local culture. Immerse yourself in the prosperous, joyful atmosphere at the market and try your hand at shopping with the locals here.
12:00: You have lunch at the restaurant. In addition, you can also enjoy the famous Thang Co specialty with Bac Ha corn wine.


AFTERNOON:
13:00: You move to Sapa.
15:30: Arrive in Sapa, check in to the hotel and rest
