    SA PA- LUNG KHAU NHIN- SA PA
    Quaint, authentic and colorful: Lung Khau Nhin Weekly Fair standing on Thursday morning.

    Between 7 am and 9 am, roads and mountain tracks are very lively. There, a peasant pulls his donkey who does not want to move forward. Here, another holds a piglet at the end of a leash by pushing it with a bamboo whip. Others, wiser, prefer to carry the little pigs on the platform to avoid losing weight on the way to the fair. Some go by couple, the woman carrying on the back the stack of hoods that she braided, the man the jerry can of alcohol that he distilled. They put on their best clothes. Turbans of all shapes, red, blue or black, cross simpler chests planted with fresh tea leaves or embellished with silver coins. The colorful H'mong women and girls have donned their finest skirts, all folded, swinging right and left at every step, making grandmothers look like children. The tunics are finely embroidered and the aprons shimmering.

    The sellers offer groceries, books and school supplies, toiletries, haberdashery), relayed, according to rotations which differ, by the peasants who came to sell their production (vegetables, breeding, handicrafts). Finally women calculate the benefit of the day or compare the products, the girls are beautiful, the men clink at the rice alcohol while discussing horses and land.

    After, lunch in Muong Khuong. Then return to Sa Pa. Small stop at Ta Phin village. Dinner in town and night at the hotel.

    Meals included : breakfast, lunch, dinner.
