From Hanoi, travel to the Bac Giang junction to change buses and keep on going 58 km more to Hoang Su Phi. Located in the western part of Ha Giang province and located at the foot of the magnificent Tay Con Linh, Hoang Su Phi is severely divided by limestone karsts and streams, thus owning a beautiful natural setting. This is a fine stop for those who enjoy nature walks and discover the great things in life of indigenous people here.
Hoang Su Phi possesses a charming beauty of the terraced fields and the majestic beauty of the waterfalls surrounded by pine trees. And especially, at harvesting season, the golden rice fields brilliantly put on Hoang Su Phi a splendid yellow colour. Hoang Su Phi in Ha Giang is probably also the most stunning terraced fields in Vietnam. You can go hiking on mountainous roads and breathe fresh air in the early morning of autumn, admire the dreamy hills in early morning mist and then reach the cool streams of water in the valley flowing swiftly along the town of Vinh Quang to Xin Man.
Especially, if visitors come to Ha Giang on Sunday, they will have chance to participate in the atmosphere of the famous Hoang Su Phi market, a mile-long market where visitors are spoiled for souvenir gifts and blend in the characteristics of ethnic areas. Travellers will never forget such a colorful, vibrant and cheerful ethnic market. Hoang Su Phi still has a very primitive beauty, has not been "tourismised" by commercial activities such as some of the Northwest mountainous cities and it is one of the districts in Ha Giang that is still successful in preserving its culture of the ethnic groups, such as Dao, Mong, Nung, Pa Dam, Giay ...
And in Hoang Su Phi, visitors should not forget to try delicious carp fish in the terraces with attractive flavor, rich, crunchy sound with the cup of wine Nang Don which is really passionate, fascinated to make us love this gentle and charming Hoang Su Phi.
