Ha Giang is a newly explored destination that has been open to tourism for only a few years. ,,With a population of just over 700,000 people, this is one of Vietnam’s poorest places, and it shows—not because it is decrepit or run-down, but just the opposite—not being reliant on a strong economy has kept the area pristine and preserved, virtually untouched by the harmful effects of mass tourism and big industries.,,The region boasts nature as you have probably never seen it. Massive limestone walls, granite outcrops everywhere, hanging valleys, rice terraces climbing to the clouds, and winding roads carved into the mountainsides.,,This alone sounds like a great adventure, but combined with the ubiquitous presence of the local hill tribes—mostly proud Black Hmong—this experience is a "must-do" on any Vietnam itinerary.
