Posted on: 12/08/2012 - Viewed: 2162
 

This small market is between Can Can 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 place lo move onto once the tour buses arrive in Bac Ha from Sapa, and has a very real feel.If most of the mountain 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 every day of Monkey and Tiger.

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

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

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