Vi Xuyen Town, Ha Giang Province. Ha Giang is northern of Viet Nam, it’s one of the poorest provinces here, however, we found that Ha Giang has so beautiful natural scenes in Viet Nam. Most of the locals are a minority, they live in Highland which is affected mostly from natural disasters and they also are far away from modernity. That’s the reason we come to help them.
Ha Giang has 4 seasons a year, it will be hot around May to June, they will be cold around Dec or Jan. Please kindly ask me for suitable clothes each season.
Ha Giang is also famous with mountains, so it will be better to prepare trekking shoes and suitable clothes.
