Every year, there are millions of tourists visit Hanoi, Vietnam but most of them only interested in traveling to Halong Bay, Sa Pa, Nha Trang, Da Nang, Ho Chi Minh city... Why? Because most of them do not know the name of Ha Giang, where is the first place of northen Vietnam, we usually call "The north pole of the Fatherland" (Cực Bắc của Tổ quốc).

Also because Ha Giang is not suggested or recommended or is not mentioned so much as other destinations in Vietnam as Sa Pa, Bac Ha...

Therefore, that is why there are only very few tourists know to Ha Giang. Meanwhile, Ha Giang is more beautiful and mysterious, seductive than Sapa very much, in my own feeling.
