I was quite glad to have the H’mong women to walk along with us. It was quite slippery & definintely not an easy hike to get to the village.

There were some other minorities such as the red dao. We couldn’t get a photo of them as they charged for photo. All the minorities has amazing sales technique and they are super persistence in selling you their handcrafts. Even kids are well trained.

We had a quick bite at the restaurant near the train station in Lao Cai before taking the train. There was a guy who provide shoes cleaning services outside the restaurant. It took them about 5mins and 80% of the mud on your shoes would be gone. They were very efficient and charged only about US$1 per pair. I was very impressed.

Not looking forward to taking the train back to Hanoi again even with the flat bed…
