QUYEN TIEN MARKET

Quyen tien market

Nestled in the foot of the mountain  in the stunning Ha Giang district beholds the charmingly quaint market of the Quyen tien community. Here the efforts of  the Hmong people’s  long working weeks are unveiled in a shower of colourful culture for just one Saturday morning.

Highland markets have long been a highly desirable destination of choice for tourists on discovery paths. They feel their soul awakening as the sunlight trickles up the mountain peak in the midst of morning; and see streams of the Hmong people with their radiant and rich tapestries of dress working from dawn until dusk.

This market in particular in the Ha Giang province is an event of extreme social and cultural importance. Throughout the maze of stalls historic profound beauty is painted and crystallized over the indigenous Mongolian dress and jewelry.

The women here are spoiled for choice as they gaze upon magnificently crafted clothes; shoes and silver rings. The men congregate towards the tobacco pipes and buy ancient remedies and medicines for their families. When the hum of the market softens at the end of the day; the people settle down together in satisfaction and sheer happiness; enjoying many cups of wine; laughing as they tell each other stories and jokes about the day.

For the indigenous people of the mountainside in Ha Giang this market is much more than just a means of shopping and selling It is a truly recreational time for meeting friends and having fun together. The market is essentially a living museum of timeless culture and ancient practice, that both mesmerizes and captivates all who come to experience it.
