Located about 45 km from north-western Lao Cai Town, passing over the complex of Muong Vi caves and grottoes and Xeo village, the Muong Hum market still remains intact. The market meets on every Sunday. Visitors are warmly welcomed and invited to have a meal and a cup of wine. On Tet holidays and other traditional festivals, all families in Muong Hum village often gather together and enjoy a typical meal with salted vegetable, duck, pork or dry buffalo meat and beef with cabbage.
The town is packed with the noise of humans and horses and colored by spectacular traditional costumes dressed by local people. On the day, the elderly often have heart – to – heart talks while young people are happily chatting. Much more can speak about Muong Hum market. The bustling town of Muong Hum features its own unique cultural presentation of this ancient tradition.
