The famous market of Dong Van town that was built hundreds of years ago was finally closed down and been replaced by the new market located just across the street.
At the new market, minority people such as H’Mong and Tay sell agricultural products, fruit, meat and some fresh-water fish and snails to buyers. While the ancient market located amid the houses of old Dong Van town is now a tourist spot.
Dong Van town is at the center of Dong Van Karst Plateau in Ha Giang Province which has been recognized as a global geopark by UNESCO. Dong Van Karst Plateau is the highest plateau in Vietnam, attracting tourists from all over the world thanks to its spectacular scenes and local cultures of minority groups.
