After a breakfast at your hotel, drive pass Phố Cáo, Sủng Là. Stop by these villages to visit H’mong families and interact with the locals. Visit the palace of the H’mong king, which was a royal family of high rank during French colonial rule – this palace attracts keen interest from architecturally minded visitors due to its mixed style of European and Chinese architecture. The Hmong King Palace is located in the Sa Phin commune, Dong Van district, Ha Giang province in the northeast Vietnam. In the early nineteenth century, the Vuong family controlled the entire region and Vuong Duc Chinh, head of the family, proclaimed himself “king of the H’Mong”. The construction began in 1920 and lasted eight years. It was not only a building but also a fort in the middle of rocky highland.
Due to its location which is light years away from modern life in big cities, Sung La was chosen as the location for the award-winning movie Pao’s Story. Since then Sung La has become a popular destination for travelers looking for something different and of course movie buffs. Like other villages of minority people, villagers plant corn and other staples. But what is different here is that there are rose fields that cover almost all of the nearby area, with harvested roses will be taken to big cities like Hanoi.
Then drive through small villages and past vast agricultural landscapes and the sweeping mountains of the North heading back to Thon Tha and have a dinne here before your driver drop you off at Ha Giang bus station.
