Lung Phin Market - Sapa

Lung Phin market opened every sunday.

This little market is between Can Cau market and Bac Ha town, about 12km from the town. It’s less busy than other markets, and is open on Sunday. It is a good location to move onto when the tour buses arrive in Bac Ha from Sapa, and has a very real sense. If most of the mountainous markets in Vietnam happen on weekend, Lung Phin is a different one which is rich local culture meaning.

This is based on the date of 12 animal designations in clued Rat, Ox, Tiger, Hare/Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep/Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. This market is per day of Monkey and Tiger.

From the late afternoon of the day before the people concentrate here from the surrounding sectors and who have one night meeting friends who come from other villages. The old people discuss about their family, children, works while young people talk about love and marriage some of them would come with instruments and dance to warm up the cold night.

The morning starts earlier than normal day with sound of people talking, chatting, laughing, singing, steeping since the rooster notice first watch on all trails leading to the market.

The market is right on the hillside with some thatched huts where are at the corner they tie animals.

Lung Phin market is 12km from Bac Ha, 82km from Lao Cai and about 120km from Sapa
