Stunning Ha Giang: In pictures


Freelance photographers Viet Bac and Le Tho journeyed across Vietnam's spectacular northern border province of Ha Giang, and captured the landscape and local people in a series of striking images.

Hoang Su Phi is a place of mystery and enchantment.

Each picture tells a story about the life of the ethnic minority people. It is difficult to see images of this stunning place and not start planning your own trip to Ha Giang.  


The best works of photographers Viet Bac and Le Tho were displayed at an exhibition organised by the Hoang Su Phi administrative unit in charge of cultural activities. This image, titled “Binh Minh tren Ho Thau” or “Dawn on the Ho Thau”, was one of those included.
