Hà Giang | Vietnam

Hà Giang province is located in the far north region of Vietnam, bordering with China. The province is home to some of the most breathtaking landscapes that Vietnam has to offer and to some ethnical minorities groups including the Hmong, the Tay and the Dao. It is common to explore Hà Giang doing a motorbike loop around the province. The usual road takes around 380km and lasts at least 4 days.
