Can Cau is a small mountain village just 7 km from the Chinese border. It is a beautiful area nestled at 1000 meters altitude. People come to Can Cau market every Saturday. This is an outdoor market very picturesque but also very busy. It reflects the typical characteristics of minorities in the mountainous regions of North Vietnam.
 
You can admire the girls dressed in their traditional costumes and boys. For these tribes, who often live far apart, it's time to find a mate and avoid inbreeding. In the mountains, the markets have a very important role in the economic, social and cultural exchanges among ethnic groups. Visit an ethnic market is to participate in the purchase of local products representing direct support to the population of the mountains but also exchange, discuss and participate in the local life!
 
It is possible to make the journey on foot. Let's discover the laughter of villagers!
